Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 1677 Townsend Avenue in Tremont, The Bronx. Located between Walton and Jerome Avenues, the 3,333-square-foot lot is close to the 174-175th Streets subway station, serviced by the B and D trains, and the Mt. Eden Avenue station, serviced by the 4 train. Yaakov Lefkowitz of Lefko Capital Group is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The proposed 74-foot-tall development will yield 23,173 square feet designated for residential space. The building will have 35 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 662 square feet. The steel-based structure will also have a cellar but no accessory parking.
Boaz M. Golani Architect is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits were filed last month for the two-story commercial building on the site. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
