Permits have been pre-filed for a thirty-story mixed-use building at the waterside 3875 9th Avenue in Inwood, Manhattan. The site is two blocks away from the 207th Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train, and four blocks from the 207th Street subway station, end of the line for the A trains. Maddd Equities is listed as behind the applications.

The neighborhood has been largely devoid of new development and has often been considered the last refuge of affordable housing in Manhattan. This proposal comes after the City Council voted to approve the rezoning of the neighborhood, which faced heated resistance from local NIMBYs.

The 295-foot tall structure will yield 600,000 square feet, with over half a million square feet dedicated to residential use, and 65,000 square feet for commercial-retail use. 614 apartment units will be created, averaging 840 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. All units will be built as affordable housing, and 25% will be permanently affordable.

The building will include a lobby, a 100-car garage, storage for 308 bicycles, and a recreation room on the top floor.

Aufgang Architects are listed as responsible for the design.

The lot is currently vacant, meaning construction can start as soon as permits are approved. The estimated completion date has not been announced.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Rooms to live in not ready, but report from Andrew Nelson ready. (Thank you)

    Calling us NIMBY residents is not true. We were not opposed to a rezoning that would allow for new development in our neighborhood. In fact, we put forward a plan of our own that called for new development. You would know this if you paid attention and did your research. We opposed this predatory rezoning because it allows developers to rip apart the fabric of our community with monstrously out-of-scale developments like this one being proposed.

    • They don’t care. Almost any opposition, whether to preserve buildings worthy of landmark protection or to protect against massive displacement of long-term low- and moderate-income community residents, is called “NIMBY” here. All development is considered good and any opposition is evil NIMBYism.

    • There’s nothing at this location to protect. This area could and should be denser mixed-use section of northern Manhattan.

  3. Responding to the previous poster (Inwood resident)…

    What kind of bogus fabric are you talking about? All there is are lots of industrial warehouses and this site is a vacant lot. This area has no street life and certainly no neighborhood to speak of. I would imagine that after 5 PM, this area would be completely dead. A new 30 story with hundreds of new residents will actually create more of a community than what is there now.

  4. That walk from 9th Avenue up to the A Train on 207th and Broadway should be a charmer in the dead of winter.

  5. Another Inwood resident here.

    It’s folks like the above that basically define textbook NIMBYism. They have nothing but platitudes in place of policy, and make up for their lack of numbers with sheer volume in their obstinacy. They say they want “affordable housing” but god forbid housing of any decent number shows up, because then they cry that it’s too tall or too ugly or too many people will move in and the trains and schools will be too crowded.

    What they want is subsidized housing for them and them alone, and to hell with anybody still looking for a home.

  6. I see – decrepit warehouses, next to a truck parking lot, a garbage-filled inlet and a rusted rail yard. Sounds like UNESCO World Heritage status to the local NIMBYs, never allowed to be developed.

    • The rail yard is a very active NYCTA facility. But a 30-story building is out of place in Inwood – –

  7. Another another Inwood resident | September 3, 2018 at 3:44 pm | Reply

    It’s residents like Nalano that try to drown out the fact they are just plain wrong with their cries of NIMBY. There are plenty of YIMBYs in Inwood — they just wanted a better plan than this 30 story piece of garbage planning. (17 working down to 11 to the west would have been just fine, and actually yielded MORE housing units than the plan that was passed.)

  8. looks a very good project for a industrial undeveloped are and will help to improve the area and the lifestyle. How can I get one of this affordable apartment????

  9. SO you’re opposed to a project that will provide 614 new affordable apartments? Can you delineate what you would support? Can you see why reporters call it NIMBY? Because it is. I can understand opposing market rate projects, but opposing 100% affordable in what is now a vacant parking lot causes you to loose all credibility.

  10. This will complement the taller development planned for the Bronx side and eventually planned for the area south of W 207th, east of 10th Ave

  11. I hope the units allocated for affordable housing have their seperate entrance, as accomplished downtown. And to qualify for affordable housing, showing financial hardship, you should be excluded from a parking spot,as there are only @100.

  12. Glad to see development coming to this area…. awesome

    The opposition is only looking for a piece of the pie so they can be quite……
