A rendering has been revealed of the seven-story, 22-unit residential project under development at 417 East 135th Street, in the South Bronx’s Mott Haven section. The latest building permits indicate the new building will encompass 20,022 square feet and rise 70 feet above street level, not including bulkhead elements. The residential units, averaging 681 square feet apiece, will be condominiums, Welcome2TheBronx reported. There will also be off-street parking for 11 cars. The property owner does business as the Brooklyn-based Sobro LLC. Brooklyn-based Frankl C Mallea Y Stern Associates Architects & Engineers (a.k.a. J Frankl Associate, or JFA) is responsible for the design. The site is currently vacant. A construction timeline has not been disclosed.

  1. There is an old tenement a few lots away that was gut renovated. A gym – a rooftop deck – stainless steel appliances. The block is changing quickly.

  2. Good, the area is improving. This is proof of it.

  3. I am renting an apartment on the block that’s been gut renovated and love it. I have previously lived in Harlem and paid double of what I’m paying now. It’s a great area and near transportation.

  4. Well lets hope the city (state) downgrades the Major Deegan to a surface boulevard.

  5. Hey-
    I welcome this project. I have actually been looking to buy in the area and this is a place I would definitely live in. I’m just upset as I tried reaching the owner but nobody got back to me.

  6. Im glad the long block is being renovated. Luxury condo next to a mobil gas station and across from projects. I guess i would have to sleep on this one. Looks like other side of the highway have more new developements. But it is a block and a block can be a good start.

    • Actually even on Willis Ave there are a couple smaller brand new buildings. Definitely market rate – but not “luxury condos”. One such is a brand new one on Willis (heading north toward 149th) with “Juliet balconies” on the front. It has a roof deck also.

  7. I must say that im glad its not another hotel being developed to house the homeless.

  8. I can see the area changing more north in the next 20 to 30 yrs. It is facing south south Bronx or Piano District. Being close has to account for something. Will take developers buying up alot more property though on that side of highway. One home at a time….

  9. This is really exciting!! The design looks really cool, I heard there will be a gym and roof deck as well. The neighborhood has really been gentrifing over the last year. I would love to buy a unit here especially with its close proximity to lower Manhattan and all the public transportation. Please update us as soon as theseen apartments hit the market.

  10. Thanks for info AG

  11. Why are the people white in the rendered photo? Image of things to come, i.e. gentrification.
