RYE BROOK—Manhattan-based Cohen Brothers Realty Corporation announced on May 12 it will submit a proposal for what it termed will be a “dramatic redevelopment” of the shuttered Doral Arrowwood Hotel and Conference Center. The plan calls for the construction of a wellness-focused luxury boutique hotel and spa destination featuring multiple restaurants, celebrity-chef dining, extensive indoor and outdoor recreation facilities and luxury housing.
The proposal involves replacing the complex on Anderson Hill Road that closed in January 2020, with a 146-room luxury boutique hotel, together with 36 apartments and 78 townhomes on the approximately 90-acre property, much of which would remain open space. The concept will feature signature architecture and envisions two marquee destination restaurants, as well as a hotel restaurant, bars, lounges, fitness facilities, conference and meeting rooms and ballrooms, company officials stated.
The existing hotel will be demolished, and the golf course will be reimagined as natural open space with a trail network, the company stated.
“We are very excited to be moving forward with a proposal that we believe is well-suited for the property, the adjacent community, the Village of Rye Brook and Westchester County,” said Charles S. Cohen, President/CEO of Cohen Brothers, who grew up in nearby Harrison. “This is a complete reimagination of an outdated use that is aligned with business and consumer trends of the 21st century.”
A formal proposal and application will be submitted to the Village of Rye Brook for consideration.
Cohen Brothers other Westchester County holding is 333 Westchester Ave. in White Plains. Once the headquarters of the General Foods Corp., Cohen Brothers acquired the 39-acre property and worked with architect Philip Johnson to transform it into a multi-tenant office campus.
