Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 1300 Castle Hill Avenue in Westchester Square, The Bronx. Located between Westchester Avenue and Lyon Avenue, the corner lot is steps away from the Castle Hill Avenue subway station, serviced by the 6 train. Barbara Sopher is listed as the owner behind the applications, under the 1300 Castle Hill Owner LLC.
The proposed 74-foot-tall development will yield 111,124 square feet, with 58,118 square feet designated for residential space, 9,938 square feet for commercial space, and 2,799 square feet for community facilities. The building will have 83 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 700 square feet. Along with retail on the ground floor, the concrete-based structure will also have 43 enclosed parking spaces and a 30-foot-long rear yard.
Richard Saunderson of Margulies Hoelzi Architecture is responsible for the design.
Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
