Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 7 Terrace View Avenue in Marble Hill, Manhattan. Marble Hill is the northernmost region of Manhattan, and is the only portion of the borough that isn’t on an island. While it had been connected to the main island of Manhattan before, the US Army cut it off of the city for a canal to expedite shipping in the late 19th Century, and it was later connected to the Bronx in 1914 by filling in the old river. James Kwon will be responsible for developing a structure along the northern edge of the neighborhood, near where the old river used to be.
The 40-foot tall structure will yield 28,400 square feet for residential use. 39 apartments will be created, averaging 728 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. Residents will be six blocks away from the Marble Hill 225th Street subway station, serviced by the 1 trains. Seven blocks away is the Marble Hill Metro-North train station.
Red Flux Architecture will be 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.
