Stagg Group, which is building several market-rate projects throughout the Bronx, is also working on a partially-affordable development in Bedford Park, a working class Bronx neighborhood home to Puerto Rican, Dominican, Ecuadorian, and Indian communities.
The Stagg Group has filed applications for a 13-story, 163-unit mixed-use building at 150 Van Cortlandt Avenue East, located on the corner of St. George Crescent in the West Bronx’s Bedford Park section. The project will encompass 149,580 square feet and will include 5,135 square feet of community facility space on the basement level. The first through 13th floors will contain residential units averaging 791 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Marin Architects is the architect of record, The Real Deal reported. The 17,907-square-foot site is occupied by a single-story commercial structure. Permits state that demolition began in October.
It’s been a busy few days in the Bronx for the Department of Buildings, and the surge in new building applications across the borough probably has something to do with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new plan to resurrect the 421-a tax break. A non-profit working to end homelessness has filed plans for a 13-story supportive housing project at 2865 Creston Avenue, in the northwestern Bronx neighborhood of Bedford Park.
It’s been nearly a year since builder William Weigand filed plans for a five-story, mixed-use building at 244 East 198th Street in the Bedford Park section of the Bronx. Now, Weigand has submitted applications for a slightly larger and taller building at 244 East 198th Street, on the border with Fordham North.
Small market-rate developers in the Bronx have slowed down their plans for new buildings since the 421-a tax abatement program expired last month. But a few risk takers are still planning projects in the borough’s more established neighborhoods, like Bedford Park. Last week, developer Arben Mitaj filed plans for an eight-story market-rate building at 3053 Villa Avenue, between Bedford Park Boulevard and East 204th Street in Bedford Park.
