In late June, permits were filed for what will be the tallest structure in the Mount Eden neighborhood of The Bronx. Now, YIMBY has the exclusive reveal for the design of the 15-story building at 1331 Jerome Avenue, courtesy of GF55 Partners. The project will bring commercial, residential, and community facilities to the neighborhood.
The design features steel and precast concrete planks. The main material for the façade will be iron spot brick, with textured and smooth metal panels facing the avenues.
According to GF55 Partners’ founder, David Gross, the design intends to, “create a building that communicates on an urban scale and a pedestrian scale. The urban scale is achieved with the regular brick bays that are seen from a distance while the confetti-like pattern of the randomly placed panels provides a visual counterpoint to that bay geometry.”
The 159-foot tall structure will yield 221,060 square feet within, with 19,200 square feet dedicated to ground floor retail, 68,970 square feet for supportive housing, and 97,800 square feet for residential use.
110 class-A apartments will be created, averaging 890 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. An additional 145 units will be dedicated for non-profit sleeping accommodations. Residents will have access to a laundry room, lobby, outdoor recreation space, and a 128-bicycle garage.
Peter Fine is responsible for the development.
Demolition permits were filed last month. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
