The northwestern Bronx has become one of the few places in New York City where developers can build apartments relatively cheaply. Now prolific affordable developer Dunn Development has filed plans for a project in Norwood, a neighborhood just north of Bronx Park.
The Gowanus-based builder hopes to develop a seven-story building at 3211 Parkside Place, just off Webster Avenue. The 74-foot-tall development would hold 80 apartments and 69,251 square feet of residential space, for typical units measuring 865 square feet.
The ground floor would have a “support services office,” the super’s apartment, and bike storage, followed by 14 to 15 units apiece on the second through fifth floors, and 10 units on each of the sixth and seventh floors.
The plans don’t include much in the way of amenities, but there will be a sixth-floor terrace and community room.
SLCE Architects will design the project.
Dunn has developed several affordable buildings in the South Bronx. Their low- and middle-income developments are scattered around Morissania, Highbridge, Morris Heights and Concourse Village.
They picked up the 23,500-square-foot vacant lot for $3,205,000 in August. The Metro North tracks are about a block east, and the D train stops at 205th Street, a few blocks west of the site. A six-story hotel is also in the works a few blocks north on Webster Avenue.
