A long-vacant South Bronx lot in Highbridge may become new housing. Building applications were filed last week to develop eight stories of apartments at 1285 Edward L Grant Highway, on the corner of West 169th Street.
The South Bronx continues to boom with new affordable and supportive housing projects. Non-profit Services for the Underserved hopes to build a seven-story apartment building at 1434 Undercliff Avenue, in the Highbridge section of the Bronx.
One of the hundreds of vacant lots in the South Bronx is about to become supportive housing. A non-profit organization has filed plans for a six-story residential facility at 1084 Ogden Avenue in Highbridge, a western Bronx neighborhood just north of Yankee Stadium.
Property owner Ramon Aquino, doing business as an anonymous Bronx-based LLC, has filed applications for a three-story, single-family townhouse at 126 West 165th Street, in Highbridge, located less than a mile north of the 161st Street-Yankee Stadium stop on the 4/B/D trains. The townhouse will measure a total 2,538 square feet and will rise on a vacant, 16-foot-wide lot. The building will rise 35 feet above street level, which means ceiling heights will be generous, and there will be a single off-street car parking spot. Reza Khamcy’s Great Neck-based Icon Engineering is the applicant of record.
Property owner Mario Del Brun has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 1027 Nelson Avenue, in Highbridge, located six blocks from the 4 train’s stop at 161st Street/Yankee Stadium. The building will rise on a small, 19-foot-wide vacant lot and will measure just 3,083 square feet, which translates into average units of 771 square feet each. Bakhtiar Sahmloo’s Kew Gardens-based Tabriz Design Group is the applicant of record.
