Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 784 Courtlandt Avenue in Melrose, The Bronx. Located between East 157th Street and East 158th Street, the lot is near the Third Avenue-149th Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The proposed 75-foot-tall development will yield 25,529 square feet, with 18,878 square feet designated for residential space, 4,874 square feet for community facilities, and 1,804 square feet for commercial use. The building will have 20 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 943 square feet. The masonry-based structure will also have a cellar.
John Coogan of OCV Architects is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
