Permits have been filed for a 17-story mixed-use building with affordable housing at 320 West Fordham Road in University Heights, The Bronx. Located on the Harlem River waterfront near the Major Deegan Expressway, the lot is within walking distance of the 207th Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train and the University Heights Metro-North station on the Hudson Line. Brad Zackson of Dynamic Star LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications for one phase of the Fordham Landing mega-development.

The proposed 175-foot-tall development will yield 582,122 square feet, with 553,835 square feet designated for residential space and 28,287 square feet for community facility space. The building will have 602 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 919 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar, 274 enclosed parking spaces, and 274 open parking spaces.

Overall Fordham Landing will have a mix of community facility, commercial, and residential space with both affordable and market-rate units. In addition, there will be approximately 3 acres of public green space and waterfront amenities including a community dock, kayak launch, and a marina.

Perkins Eastman Architects is listed as the architect of record.

Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date is set for 2025, with ULURP filing and approval in the second quarter of 2023.

  1. Good to see this development moving forward. That said i think they planned towers in this project could be taller like we are seeing in Mott Haven.
