Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 290 East 149th Street, in The Bronx. Located on East 149th Street between Morris Avenue and Courtlandt Avenue in Mott Haven, the site is two blocks west of the 3 Avenue – 149 Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Peter Serpico, principal of Omnibuild, is listed as behind the applications.
The 85-foot tall structure will yield 146,186 square feet, with 91,058 square feet dedicated to residential use and 20,641 square feet for commercial space. There will be 123 apartment units, most likely rentals due to their average scope of 740 square feet apiece. There will also be 65 off-street parking spaces on the interior lot. According to filings, the new concrete-based development will have two separate buildings, as well as a cellar.
Ariel Aufgang, principal of Aufgang Architects will be responsible for the architecture.
No demolition permits have been filed for the extant three-story mixed-use building currently on the site, from 1931. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
