Permits have been filed for a new 13-story affordable housing complex at 2050 Grand Concourse in The Bronx’s Fordham Heights, bordering the Mount Hope neighborhood. The site is three blocks from the Tremont Avenue subway station, serviced by the B and D trains. Metro-North and the 4 train are also nearby. Unique People Services, i.e. UPS, is responsible for the development.

Magnusson Architecture and Planning will be responsible for the design. Renderings show an attractive use of color, with deep purple-hued masonry covering the lower half of the structure, and bare concrete rising with enough of a setback to add terraces on the seventh, tenth, and eleventh floors.

The 135-foot tall structure will yield 86,060 square feet, with 61,550 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 2,240 square feet for commercial use. 93 apartments will be included. The building will include bicycle parking, a laundry room, a community room, and two rooftop terraces.

UPS is dedicated to creating affordable housing for formerly homeless individuals in the city with special needs, along with low to moderate-income households without special needs. Of the 93 apartments created, 23 will be for low-income households, 14 will be for moderate-income households, and 55 units will be allocated for single adult supportive housing. One apartment will be for the live-in superintendent.

The lot is currently vacant, meaning construction can start as soon as permits are approved. The estimated completion date has not been announced.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Raise its height but I think it’s not good. Like this is the best.

  2. So good to know finally a plan for that empty lot.

    If I recall correctly, wasn’t Mark Gjonaj in the process of suing the City of New York for violating the Fair Share Law in the Bronx? God bless the City of New York for eroding Bronx property values for a half century.
