Permits have been filed for a five-story hotel building at 1665 Jerome Avenue in Morris Heights, The Bronx. Located across the street from a Cross-Bronx Expressway ramp, the lot is two blocks from the Mount Eden Avenue subway station, serviced by the 4 train and a few blocks from the 175th Street station, serviced by the B and D trains. Prakashkumar Patel under the Jerome Hotel Holdings LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications. Previously, plans for the site included a 13-story supportive housing project called Redemption Plaza.
The proposed 51-foot-tall development will yield 25,388 square feet, with 19,692 square feet designated for commercial space. The building will have 60 rooms, with an average unit scope of 328 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar and a 29-foot-long rear yard.
Michael Kang Architect 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.
