Hotel developers have their eyes on a busy corridor in the Bronx, with new plans filed for a five-story building at 1996 Webster Avenue. That’s near the corner of Alden Place, in the borough’s Mount Hope section.
Construction plans were filed Thursday at the Department of Buildings for a 36-room hotel at the site. It is slated to stand 55 feet tall, encompassing 11,700 square feet of space, according to the filing. Floors two through five would hold eight rooms each, and there would also be four rooms in the basement.
The owner of record is Samir Patel. A group called Cojax Construction purchased the property in May for $800,000, according to Department of Finance filings. Patel declined to comment on the project when reached by phone.
Shiming Tam’s Brooklyn-based firm is listed as the architect of record.
The site is about a 12-minute walk from the Tremont Av station on the B and D trains, but only about five minutes from the Tremont station on Metro-North Railroad’s Harlem Line.
