Long Island-based Galaxy Towers Apartment Inc. has filed applications for two four-story, eight-unit residential buildings at 1360-1364 Purdy Street, in the East Bronx’s Parkchester neighborhood (just outside the towers-in-a-park community that goes by the same name), located around the corner from the Castle Hill Avenue stop on the 6 train. From south to north, the buildings will each measure 8,213 and 6,654 square feet respectively. Residential units in the southern building should average 883 square feet apiece while units in the slightly smaller northern building should average 687 square feet, indicative of rental apartments. Pelham, N.Y.-based Michael DePasquale is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide vacant has sat long vacant.
