YORKTOWN, N.Y.-Two new buildings are being proposed for an existing commercial center on Route 6.

The structures—10,000 square feet and 6,000 square feet—would be built on four Mohegan Lake properties where two buildings already exist. A commercial building home to Dunkin’ Donuts and a pizza place would remain, while a smaller, residential-looking building used for professional purposes would be demolished.

The four properties, owned by Richard Cipriani of EnviroGreen Associates, would be connected by a parking lot. A driveway connecting the properties to Lakeland Street would also be constructed, diverting traffic from Route 6.

The two new buildings would be built near the existing sidewalk on Route 6 and would require a setback variance. A plaza area would be in front of the buildings, said Joe Riina, principal of Site Design Consultants. The proposal, which includes 141 parking spaces, is appropriate for the properties’ commercial zones, Riina said.

Steve Marino, an environmental expert with Tim Miller Associates, said the through road would disturb about 0.28 acres of wetlands. He is currently discussing mitigation efforts with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
