Thorobird Companies is already planning two 12-story affordable rental buildings in Mount Hope, in the central Bronx. They also filed building applications for a third, 12-story project at 2195 Morris Avenue in Fordham Heights, half a dozen blocks to the north and west of the Mount Hope developments.

The 115-foot-tall structure would hold 49 apartments and 41,776 square feet of residential space, for a typical apartment measuring 850 square feet. It would rise mid-block between 182nd Street and Anthony Baez Place, equidistant from the 183rd Street stop on the B and D trains on Grand Concourse and the 183rd Street 4 train stop on Jerome Avenue.

The plans call for two units in the cellar level, three on the ground floor, and four on each of the upper floors. Tenants will also have access to a slew of amenity spaces, including a shared, 270-square-foot backyard on the ground floor, a 912-square-foot roof deck on the top floor, bike storage, and a laundry room. Several apartments will also come equipped with private terraces.

Like Thorobird’s other two buildings, GF55 Partners will be responsible for the design.

The 7,000-square-foot development site is currently home to a two-story commercial building with a laundromat and a parking lot. Thorobird scooped up the two Morris Avenue lots in June for $2,000,000.

  1. Bronx is hot! Makes sense in the borough of apartment buildings.

  2. Recognize the location and build 12-stories in heights, working on the business as real ideal.

    The Bronx deserves the best, they seem to be getting it,
