Bringing New Life &
Vitality to the Village
of Larchmont

Formed by Larchmont residents, we are dedicated to Village-wide restoration efforts with demonstrated success in providing over $300,000 in grant relief and implementing Al Fresco dining to help businesses survive and thrive through the pandemic and beyond. As a result, vacancy rate has decreased from March 2020 to March 2022.

As of late 2021, One Larchmont is excited to have received Architectural Review Board and Village Board of Trustee approval to execute a holistic restoration plan that engages landlords and merchants with community residents as a catalyst to this exciting Palmer and Post District transformation.

Why Restore?

1

The success of our community begins with robust business districts. We have incredible long-standing businesses in the Larchmont community and we want to make sure we help them succeed in a changing retail environment.

Our Village

Struggling
with neglect

Despite a high residential tax rate, the Village streetscapes & business district infrastructure have been long challenged with consistent upkeep.

We recognize the high cost to run a small business, especially in a changing retail landscape. Therefore, we are taking a new approach to support our merchants by partnering with landlords and business owners to provide an opportunity to "facelift" their facades and shop windows at no cost to the landlord or merchant.

The Challenge

Vehicle for Change

We see
Larchmont
differently

We believe you deserve an inviting, clean, and supportive Larchmont. Making the streets vibrant and inviting will attract more residents and patrons, fostering places to gather and dwell.

Our Work

Our expert, volunteer team has created a unifying design intervention that starts with a thriving downtown—which is at the heart of our community. As of July 2021, we’re excited to have received Village approval to commence our storefront & streetscape improvement efforts on Larchmont Avenue, with the goal of addressing both the Palmer & Post business districts by 2026.

Expanded Impact

Supporting
Our Village

We're seeking to create a thriving community that makes residents proud to live in Larchmont. Our restoration efforts seek to preserve legacy small businesses and inspire new businesses to make a home in Larchmont.

One Larchmont has successfully distributed $300,000 in critical relief to over 45 Larchmont small businesses, as well as donated 50+ outdoor dining structures as part of our Al Fresco initiative. With your help, we believe this comprehensive business district transformation is possible.
