Permits for a new eight-story residential building in the Morris Heights section of The Bronx were recently approved by the New York City Department of Buildings. Located at 1526 Sedgwick Avenue, the 85-foot-tall structure is designed by J Frankl Associates and will yield 32,980 square feet with 26,800 square feet dedicated to residential use.

A total of 39 apartments will be created, averaging approximately 680 square feet apiece. Given those modest dimensions, rental units are most likely.

The remaining building area will support a recreation room, laundry facilities, and on-site parking for six vehicles and 20 bicycles.

The structure features a brown and white brick façade, balconies along Sedgwick Avenue, and larger private terraces at the eighth floor of the building. The new renderings also reveal an occupiable roof.

SOL Developers submitted the original permits in September 2018 but did not receive full approval until November 13, 2019. At this time, the firm has not confirmed an estimated date of completion.

  1. Will probably be a good looking building but considering the context they should have gone about twice as tall here.

  2. Uhmmmm… Those birds? Really‽ The artist should have their pay docked for that! 😀 ROFL

    how can I apply

  4. There ought to be higher income housing in that area. You need a population who will actually take advantage of the Metro North station. Most area residents will ride twenty minutes on a bus to the 4 train just to save a couple bucks. That adds to the congestion on that line and fails to take advantage of the Metro North infrastructure. River Park Towers is such a disaster. The management needs to evict like 25 percent of the population. The 75 percent that remain ought to be offered an ownership stake in the complex. As is, it feels like the projects and depresses everything in its proximity. It was supposed to be middle income housing oriented towards those who would use the Metro North.
