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.
For the second time, permits have been filed for a seven-story charter school in The Bronx’s Mott Haven, by the Academic Leadership Charter School. The ALCS currently has two locations in the borough, one for kindergarten through fourth grade, and the other for fifth grade through eighth. They plan to relocate both groups into the new building, reuniting the schools under one roof. The new site is three blocks away from the 3rd Avenue and 138th Street Station, serviced by the 6 train, and ten blocks away from the 3rd Avenue & 149th street station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The school will be across the street from Willis playground, a public park.

Shalev Shoshani of 138 S&H Realty Corp is developing the project, which will bring 24 apartments to Mott Haven. All three structures will stand 56 feet tall, with a total combined area of 22,500 square feet. That space is divided between 6,300 square feet of commercial retail on the first floor, and 16,400 square feet of residential space on floors two through five. OMF Architect PC is responsible for the design, and demolition permits were filed at the end of August.
