Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 1893 Crotona Avenue, in The Bronx’s Tremont neighborhood. The West Farms Square Subway Station is twelve blocks away to the east, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains, and the Tremont Avenue Train Station is seven blocks to the West, serviced by Metro North. Tenants will have quick access to Crotona Park, a 127-acre space described as being the most beautiful park in the borough. Edmond Haxhari will be the developer behind the project.
The 74-foot tall structure will yield 21,520 square feet of space, with 19,640 square feet dedicated to residential use. 29 apartments will be created, averaging 677 square feet apiece, indicating rentals.
Nine parking spaces will be available onsite. 15 bicycle parking spaces will be available for tenants, as well as a laundry room, lobby and vestibule, and recreational space on the second floor. A small ambulatory or treatment healthcare facility will be positioned on the ground floor.
Badaly Architects will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits were filed for the existing two-story structure in mid-December 2017. Completion is expected by mid to late 2020.
