Four-Story, Seven-Unit Mixed-Use Building Planned At 2414 Hughes Avenue, Belmont

Property owner Eleen Nihan has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit mixed-use building at 2414 Hughes Avenue, in Belmont, located four blocks south of Fordham University’s Rose Hill campus.

The residential units should average 643 square feet apiece, which means rental apartments are in the works. Mohammad Badaly’s Mount Vernon, N.Y.-based Badaly Architects is the architect of record. The site’s existing two-story wood-framed house must first be demolished.
