Building permits have been granted for a four-story, 10-unit residential project at 716 Beach Avenue, in the East Bronx’s Soundview section. The new building will measure 10,372 square feet and its residential units should average 821 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Scarsdale, N.Y.-based L&R&G Contractors Corp. is the property owner and Pelham, N.Y.-based Fred Geremia Architects & Planners is the architect of record. The 37-foot-wide, 3,750-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed earlier this year.

  1. Okay my understand is clear on the perfect details, especially “rental apartments” will happen in Soundview.

  2. 4-story / 10-unit apartment building does not fit in at all with the rest of the block of well-kept 1 and 2 family homes. Tenants tend not to care about their neighborhood as much as home owners. Article doesn’t state if off-street parking is included. Figure 10 to 15 new vehicles on that block.

    • I was just thinking the same thing. If this house was in New Rochelle – no one would want to demolish it. There are places closer to the train with bland styling. This is a handsome brick home not close to the train. This makes no sense.

    • There are 6 story apartment buildngs down the street. The zoning for that area is R-6 and everything else to the west, north and east is either attached 2+ unit housing or apartment buildings. The tenent vs home owner statement is also not accurate and is a stereotype without factual basis. There are plenty of well kept rental buildings in NYC, and plenty of run down private owned/lived in properties as well.
