WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A plan by the Esplanade Senior Living facility to move out its senior residents so they can change the building into luxury apartments is being looked at by the state Attorney General's Office, according to Lohud.com.
The owner of the building announced last month that they planned a $35 million renovation to modernize the 15-story residence, causing the more than 150 seniors currently living there to have to move, said Lohud.com.
A senior living residence since the late-1990s, when it was purchased by the Scarf family, the residents have contacted officials from different organizations in hopes of being able to stop the conversion, added Lohud.com.
The owners said through their spokesman Geoff Thompson, that they are "cooperating fully," with the Attorney General's Office and take the residents concerns very seriously, reported Lohud.com.
