“We needed to create a name for this project that is unique to Mamaroneck and its history. We thought of names such as Fenimore and Sheldrake but those were already in use in the village, and did not fully encompass what we felt this building represented. We wanted a name that reflected its exciting design as well as its location in the Village,” said Joel Halpern of Halpern, who is developing the project with Rosen Dev.
The Mason is located in the Village’s MAKER Zone (short for Manufacturing, Artisanal foods & arts, Knowledge economy, Environmental buffers, and Recreation.).

The MAKER zone also encourages the development of retail and community facilities, further enhancing the walkability and functional convenience of the area for the future.
The loft-style, industrial vibe of The Mason is particularly appealing to people who seek an active, urban and sustainable lifestyle in a location that is easily accessible to downtown Mamaroneck as well as New York City, which is just a 30-minute commute by Metro-North.
