Rezoning proposals from a local developer reveal what could be a new 11-story affordable housing building in the Mott Haven section of The Bronx. Located at 431 Concord Avenue, the building would comprise 87,369 square feet and yield 92 affordable units.
Before construction can break ground, rezoning proposals must be approved to allow for the development of a residential property in what is now a manufacturing district. The Department of City Planning has already signed off on an Environmental Assessment Statement that declared that the proposed rezoning and the associated development will not result in any major adverse effects on the surrounding neighborhood, the streetscape, or the environment.
Renderings from Gerald J. Caliendo Architect illustrate a tan and white brick and gray cementitious façade with floor-to-ceiling windows encased in grey metal.
The residential component will span a total 79,027 square feet. The planned mix of residences will include 16 studios, 42 one-bedrooms, 24 two-bedrooms, and ten three-bedrooms. Select units will include a private outdoor terrace or balcony.
It is anticipated that the building will house 281 residents.
Amenity spaces include parking accommodations for 29 vehicles, a 2,500-square-foot roof deck above the 11th floor, indoor bike storage, and a laundry room.
If approved, construction would last around 18 months and could be completed as early as 2022.
