Under the direction of local architect Gerald Caliendo, the structure will rise four stories and comprise 9,357 square feet of residential space. In total, the building will contain eight rental units, with both a cellar and penthouse level. The planned construction area measures 8,401 square feet and will result in the redevelopment of a currently vacant interior lot.
The development is located just a couple blocks west from The Fountain at Metropolitan Oval, a treasured landmark featuring sculptures by Raymond Granville Barger that dates back to 1941. Future occupants will also enjoy easy access to the 6 subway station at Parkchester–East 177th Street.
