Back in the day, the 100,000 square foot building at 544 Main Street in New Rochelle, circa 1914, drew shoppers from around the area, first as the locally owned Ware’s Department Store and then, starting in 1947, as a free-standing Bloomingdale’s. After sitting vacant for 25 years, the building reopened in 2004 in its new incarnation — home to 72 luxury live-work lofts. Touting high-tech units with downtown New Rochelle views, as well as the vintage charm that comes with Art Deco etchings and hardwood floors that date back to its Bloomingdale’s days, the building is poised to attract tenants wanting to be part of the downtown New Rochelle’s revitalization. For more information see the building’s website.
