Permits have been filed for a new 10-story residential building in the Bedford Park neighborhood of the Bronx, at 3188 Villa Avenue. The location is just three blocks away from the Mosholu Parkway subway station serviced by the 4 train, and two blocks away from Mosholu Parkway Park, an urban green space that connects the New York Botanical Garden with Van Cortlandt Park. Brooklyn-based Delacour, Ferrara & Church Architects will be responsible for the design.
The structure will rise 94 feet to its rooftop, and yield 7,600 square feet for nine residential units, averaging 845 square feet apiece, as well as 28,700 square feet for 58 living spaces to be used for a non-profit institution, averaging 495 square feet each. The ground floor will have four non-profit apartments, while floors two through ten will have six each, with one residential apartment per level. The building will include a recreation room, offices for the community facility, and laundry.
The institution who will take up these living quarters is not named, but it is possibly going to be utilized by the Glad Tidings Assembly of God, which is less than a block away.
Manhattan-based Villa House HDFC is developing the project. Demolition permits have not been filed yet, and an estimated completion date has not been announced.
