10 days ago, YIMBY featured applications for 637 East 176th Street in Tremont, Bronx. Today, we have the first look at the design for the project, by Badaly Architects. The eight-story residential building will have a multi-tone brick facade atop of a concrete block base for the first floor. Situated between Arthur Avenue and Belmont Avenue, the site is a merger of two lots on the interior of the block.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 637 East 176th Street in The West Bronx. Located between Arthur Avenue and Belmont Avenue, the site is situated in neighborhood that appears fairly suburban. Half a mile away is the MetroNorth Tremont train station, and closer to a mile away are the 174 St-Southern Boulevard and West Farms Square – East Tremont Avenue subway stations, both serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Arjan Gjushi of Al. Bros. Construction is listed as the owner behind the applications. Gjushi also recently filed permits for a 160-unit project nearby, at 29 Featherbed Lane.
Ground was broken at 2865 Creston Avenue yesterday to mark the beginning of construction on Bedford Green House, a 13-story supportive and affordable housing project in The Bronx’s Bedford Park neighborhood. The development is expected to cost $58.8 million, with almost half financed by the New York City Housing Development Corporation, HDC, under their Extremely Low- and Low-Income Affordability (ELLA) program.
Back in 2015, YIMBY reported that the Stagg Group had filed new building applications for 2051 Ryer Avenue, in the West Bronx. Since then, the site went onto the market asking $1.45 million, and has evidently traded hands to Hercules Argyriou, of Ryer Avenue MM LLC/Mega Contracting Inc., which has filed new applications for a structure that is about 50% larger than the original. The building will rise 12 floors (as opposed to 13 previously), and total 66,615 square feet of residential space, to be divided between 86 apartments. That translates into an average unit of about 770 square feet, indicative of rentals. SLCE Architects is designing, and demolition permits for the site’s former occupant were filed in June of 2015.
Bronx-based Kodra Construction has filed applications for a six-story, 23-unit residential building at 1810 Crotona Park East, located in the West Bronx’s Crotona Park East section. The project will measure 18,892 square feet and its residential units should average 722 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will also be seven off-street parking spaces. Mohammad R. Badaly’s Mount Vernon, N.Y.-based firm is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 4,996-square-foot plot is vacant. The site was occupied by a two-story house until 2008.
