BAR balks at 2-4 Weaver St. design

After an hourlong hearing Monday night, the Scarsdale Board of Architectural Review demanded further details on a revised plan for luxury condominiums at 2-4 Weaver St. at the Heathcote Five Corners.

The developer, Frederick S. Fish Investment Co. of New Jersey, originally proposed an 11-unit new building over decked parking in what is now a parking lot, adjacent to a restaurant in the old tavern building.

Let the tiny pieces nestle down among the blades of grass, they said, or pile them in garden beds and around shrubs. All the technique required was an inexpensive mulching blade and deck plate cover.

Leaf mulch, the village pointed out, protects the soil from hard winds, heavy rains and extreme temperatures.
