Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building in the Bronx’s West Farms neighborhood. Geraldo Zefi will be developing 1295 Rodman Place, just two blocks away from the West Farms Square subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains.
The 74-foot tall structure will yield 28,000 square feet for residential use. The 46 units will average 608 square feet apiece, which implies rentals. 900 square feet of recreation space will be provided for tenants, as well as a laundry room, storage, and bicycle parking. At the ground level, there will be four apartments and a lobby, with each story above containing six apartments per floor.
The façade will be mainly masonry. Mount Vernon-based Badaly Architects will be responsible for the design, and the firm is quite familiar with the territory, as they are designing several other apartment buildings in the vicinity.
Demolition permits for the single-story structure were filed in June. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
