East New York has been in the headlines recently thanks to a major rezoning that is paving the way for the area’s transformation into a denser and fully revitalized neighborhood, and now YIMBY has the first images of a major new development coming to 1427-1449 Loring Avenue. The plans, designed by Magnusson Architecture and Planning, PC, would result in four buildings covering an entire city block.

Bronx-based Procida Companies has filed applications for two mid-rise, multi-family mixed-use buildings at 2047 and 2049 Newbold Avenue, located in the East Bronx’s Unionport section. Renderings of the development have been revealed by The Real Deal. The filings indicate the two buildings will rise 10 and 11 stories each, encompassing 112,109 and 94,302 square feet respectively. The 11-story structure would rise along Westchester Avenue and the 10-story building would be located on Newbold Avenue.
The Bronx is full of affordable and senior housing, but one non-profit is planning the city’s first affordable development for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender seniors in Tremont. Plans were filed last month for the seven-story facility at 771 Crotona Park North, across from the huge park of the same name.
A rendering has been revealed of the proposed eight-story, 49-unit mixed-use project at 5108 Fourth Avenue, located on the corner of 51st Street in Sunset Park. The rendering comes as the project was recently approved by Community Board 7 as part of the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), Brooklyn Daily reported. If all approvals are granted, the new building would feature Brooklyn Public Library’s new Sunset Park branch, measuring 21,000 square feet. There would be 49 affordable rental residential units on the floors above, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms.
New construction is coming to the rather desolate area near rail yards in eastern Mott Haven, in the South Bronx. Prolific affordable builder Radson Development is planning a 13-story affordable apartment building at 869 East 147th Street, between Timson and Austin places.
