The South Bronx hotel boomlet continues apace, with a filing on Friday for a 98-key hotel at 156 Bruckner Boulevard, in the southeastern industrial corner of Mott Haven.

An application was submitted to the Department of Buildings to erect a seven-story hotel on a through-block site with frontage on Bruckner Boulevard and East 132nd Street, mid-block between St. Ann’s Avenue and the landing of the Triborough Bridge’s Bronx leg.

The 98 hotel rooms will be spread across 31,000 square feet of space, up to 16 rooms per floor, for an average room size of around 320 square feet. There will also be a 23-car parking area in an open space on the ground level, larger than required by code.

The developer is listed on the permit as Forest Hills-based Osher Niyazov, and the the architect as Julien Flander.

Niyazov picked up the development site – currently home to a low-slung brick building – earlier this year for $3 million, which works out to around $95 per buildable square foot.

The hotel is just one of a handful planned for the South Bronx, and other recent filings range from the Grand Concourse to the industrial eastern edge of Mott Haven.
