The Bronx boom continues apace, and today, YIMBY has the reveal for building two of the Concourse Village West affordable housing project, designed by Aufgang Architects, which will rise at 702 Grand Concourse, in Concourse Village.
The structure will rise 14 floors and 133 feet high, and create roughly 47,000 square feet for its 57 units, averaging 825 square feet apiece.
The design combines both traditional and contemporary touches, with art-deco accents on the ground-floor pillars, and a rounded window corner rising twelve stories, all with an otherwise rigid façade. The structure also contains a mix of colors and materials, with a gold-colored accent on the ground floor, red and grey bricks rising up the vertical section overlooking the sidewalk, and a three-story concrete accent up on top.
“My colleagues and I are very proud of our long track record designing affordable housing for New Yorkers,” said Ariel Aufgang, AIA, principal of Aufgang Architects.
Monthly rent for the units will vary from $623 per month for a one-bedroom to $1028 per month for a two bedroom, with terrace.
Concourse Village West is developing the project, and groundbreaking occurred in mid-September of this year. Within the three-building complex’s 265 units, 100 will be permanently affordable, as part of Mayor Bill De Blasio’s ten-year plan to create 200,000 affordable units.
