Permits have been filed for a 312,880 square foot mixed-use building at 1755 Watson Avenue in Soundview, Bronx. The project was made possible after the site was rezoned from R5 to R7A. R5 zoning allows for a floor area ration (FAR) development of 1.25, which would typically produce a three or four-story attached house. R7A zoning allows for 4.0 FAR, and a maximum height limit of 85 feet, the exact height of this new building. Azimuth Development Group is responsible for the development.
1755 Watson Avenue
The Azimuth Development Group is planning an expansive mixed-use project at 1755 Watson Avenue, between Rosedale Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue, in the Soundview section of the Bronx. The 250,000-square-foot building will house 250 mixed-income residential units, plus 20,000 square feet of retail space. With the residential units spread across 230,000 square feet, that means units averaging about 920 square feet. Aufgang Architects is the designer.
