Developer Neil Gold has proposed building 1,400 to 1,650 homes at New Jersey’s Harriman Metro-North station.

Teaneck, N.J.-based developer Neil Gold has submitted two potential development configurations to the Woodbury Planning Board for his transit-oriented community concept, “The Gardens at Harriman Station,” to be built on a 112-acre land parcel near the Harriman N.Y. Metro-North station.

One configuration proposes 1,400 new homes and 245,000 square feet of commercial space, and the other 1,650 homes and 270,000 square feet of commercial space. Gold estimates that the project will cost $443 million and create 1,300 construction jobs over two years. Most of the residential units would be apartments and townhomes, with some single-family homes, and commercial amenities would include a hotel, movie theater, supermarket, and restaurants.

The land’s previous owner had considered creating a commuter-oriented community on the property, but never did so, according to the Times Herald-Record. Woodbury’s planning board has not yet approved a concept.
