A new rendering has been released detailing a multi-use structure located in the South Bronx. The property which is currently owned by the city is one of the largest in its possession, and is situated on the Harlem River waterfront just north of the 145th Street bridge, adjacent to the Major Deegan Expressway. The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) has partnered with the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR), as well as Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) in their development of the property.
The team behind the La Central Development has closed a deal for financing towards the construction of their massive mixed-use project in the Melrose Community of the South Bronx. This is one of the largest mixed-income projects currently under construction in New York City. Once complete, the project will span 1.1 million square feet, with five buildings and 992 units entirely devoted to affordable housing.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 909 East 229th Street, in The Bronx’s Wakefield neighborhood. The site is nine blocks away from 233rd Street Subway Station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. SThe White Plains Road commercial thoroughfare is also six blocks away. Bronx-based Atlantis Renovations Inc. will be responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a 10-story, 100 percent affordable mixed-use building at 1490 Southern Boulevard, in the Crotona Park East neighborhood of The Bronx. The site is three blocks away from the 174th Street Subway Station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains, and ten blocks away from the Whitlock Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the 6 train.
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.
