An anonymous Bronx-based LLC has filed applications for a six-story, 20-unit residential building at 1135 Clay Avenue, in the West Bronx’s Fleetwood-Concourse Village section. The project will measure 20,695 square feet and its residential units should average 838 square feet apiece. The units will range from studios to two-bedrooms and will probably be rentals. Paul E. Jennings’s Brooklyn-based Freeform + Deform is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 4,876-square-foot site is currently occupied by a dilapidated two-story structure. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The 167th Street stop on the D train is eight blocks away.
A 10-story building that will offer housing for formerly homeless adults is taking shape at 316 East 162nd Street, in the Concourse Village section of the South Bronx.
The South Bronx is suddenly booming with development, from affordable housing to market-rate rentals. But there are also plenty of hotels in the works, particularly in the area around Yankee Stadium. Last week, we spotted plans for an 11-story hotel at 859 Sheridan Avenue, between 159th and 161st streets in Concourse Village
Back in February, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a massive renovation and restoration of the Bronx General Post Office. Located at 558 Grand Concourse, the property is a city individual and interior landmark. Now, the renovation design has changed slightly and the changes were well-received by the commissioners.
Great Neck-based Shelter Rock Builders has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 1067 Teller Avenue, in Concourse Village, four blocks from the Melrose Metro North station, or nine blocks from 167th Street stop on the B and D trains. The townhouse-style building will measure just 3,271 square feet, and full-floor units will average 1,090 square feet apiece. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record, and site’s former three-story building was demolished in 2001 by the HPD.
