An Alternative Approach to Preservation Plus Sales and Open Houses

66BriteAvenueLittle has changed with Scarsdale’s Historic Preservation and Building Code to preserve Scarsdale’s signature properties this year. However, it appears that a slowdown in the market for luxury homes has discouraged developers from razing homes and the number of approved demolitions has dipped to just five homes and a garage so far this year.

In March 2019, just before the end of former Mayor Dan Hochvert’s term, the Land Use Committee considered a proposed code change to pre-designate or landmark homes and buildings that “represent distinctive element of the village’s historic, architectural and cultural heritage.” However the proposal has not as yet come before the current Board of Trustees.

It seems that for now, at least, the rate of demolitions has declined. However, if market forces change, Scarsdale could again see the rapid destruction of historic properties.

Another approach to preservation could be borrowed from Wellesley, Massachusetts where in 2017 the town enacted a law that requires the owners of buildings built before December 31, 1949 to wait 12 months before tearing down the structure. The point of the delay is to encourage property owners to find an alternative to demolition. This effort was aimed at saving homes whose loss “would be detrimental to the historical or architectural heritage of the Town because such Building is importantly associated with one or more historic persons or events.”

Scarsdale’s Trustees might benefit from reviewing this code to see if it would serve to preserve more homes in town. See more here:
