Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 1340 Blondell Avenue in Westchester Square, The Bronx. Located between Fink Avenue and Ponton Avenue, the lot is near the Westchester Square-East Tremont Avenue subway station, serviced by the 6 train.

YIMBY previously reported Blondell Equities filed a rezoning proposal for a nine-story mixed-use structure at the site.

  1. It’s too bad that the design will probably be changed.

  2. Unfortunate height cut, we need more housing near transit and this is pretty much adjacent to the 6. Crazy how it went through the rezoning process and is now getting chopped down.

  3. Sent me application so I could be on the list early

    Yes i like it how can i get an application to one of these beautiful appartment. Thank you

  5. I used to work a block from this location. The tree visible to the left of the house produces lots of persimmons. It is the only one I have encountered in this area.

  6. This parking requirement needs to be scrapped. The project is near the 6 train, including a bunch of bus lines. No parking means the project wouldn’t attract car owners. Anyway, love the neighborhood, lots of potential.

    What about the bots asking for applications? Haven’t they figured out this is not the site for that?
