  1. For sitting right on top of the subway station you’d think they’d be shooting for 30 stories. Seems like the city should step in and encourage these Mott Haven developments to go as tall as possible.

    • Yes but the 4 and 5 are already jammed especially right there. NYC needs a new signal system to run more trains.

      • I agree with both of you.

        These buildings need to be taller, especially considering the housing issues in the city. Plus, it would help with developing the area as a business district.

        Yes, the city does need new signaling. I lived in London. They have an older subway system but have a newer signaling system and the difference is amazing.

  2. Yes, the zoning is absurd. This building should be 2-3 times as tall. Builders in NYC should be allowed to build big and tall basically everywhere near transit, excepting a few landmark districts.

  3. Especially since the new 425 GC is 26 stories, and Executive Towers is 23. And all of the new developments along the river are equally tall, with a planned 43 story tall development at 355 Exterior.

  4. Wonderful location. Close to Deegan and Madison Ave. Bridge traffic. No parks in area. But methadone clinic is across the street.

    • True but loads of new construction will drown out the methodone

    • Deegan Rock could easily be turned into a nice pocket park if they opened it up on 138th street and built a low stone wall/barrier next to the Deegan offramps.

  5. Here we go, another luxury and unaffordable housing complex right beside 274 grandconcourse and all rest of the new sister/brother buildings.

  6. Hurray!
    More Buildings!
    More People!
    More Density!
    More Traffic on our streets, subways and busses, etc.,
    While our fragile infrastructure
    continues to crumble.

  7. Love this Carwash , Not another Carwash for Miles, great oil change spot, right near the highway and bridge… They should upgrade it NOT demolish and build apartment buildings… It’s a shame…
