Single-Story Commercial Building Turned Into Coffee Shop At 2430 Third Avenue, Mott Haven

Somerset Partners is renovating the single-story commercial building at 2430 Third Avenue, on the corner of East 134th Street in Mott Haven, into a coffee shop. According to DNAinfo (h/t Curbed NY), the NYC-based coffee chain Filtered Coffee, co-owned by Karen Paul and Aaron Baird, will operate the new café. Both the interior and exteriors of the structure are being renovated and repurposed. New entrances are being added in addition to a skylight, per the latest filing with the Department of Buildings. Vladimir Constant’s NoMad-based The Hudson Group is the applicant of record, although Barcelona-based Alonso Balaguer is designing the project. The shop’s grand opening is scheduled for April 2.

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.
