Seven-Story, 50-Unit Condominium Project Now Planned At 221 East 138th Street, Mott Haven

In June of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a 10-story, 57-unit mixed-income rental project at 221 East 138th Street, in Mott Haven, but now Tahoe Development is swapping plans for a seven-story, 50-unit market-rate condominium building. Welcome2TheBronx reports the developer is abandoning plans to include affordable units due to cost concerns. It would also be the first market-rate condo project in the South Bronx since the 2008 financial crisis. The condos will come in studio, one-, and two-bedroom layouts, and the new building will contain ground-floor retail space as previously planned. Hudson Square’s Michael Muroff Architect is the architect of record. The existing two-story warehouse is currently being demolished.

The latest evidence of that change comes with an application to build a 12-story hotel at 82 Brown Place, between Bruckner Boulevard and the Harlem River freight yards.
