Permits were filed for a new four-story apartment building at 2261 Watson Avenue in Unionport, The Bronx. The site is located across from Havemeyer Playground and sits near East 177th Street and the Cross Bronx Expressway. The closest subway station is Parkchester on the 6 train. There will be a total of eight dwellings within the 7,120-square-foot masonry structure. Each one will be just under 900 square feet, so they will most likely be rentals. The building will eventually rise 40 feet when completed.
Leder-Luis Architectural Design filed the permits and is also the applicant of record. There will be a 10-foot-long front yard and a 30-foot-long backyard.
A completion date for the building has not been announced yet.
