Property owner Yaniv Zohar, doing business as an anonymous Kew Gardens-based LLC, has filed applications for four three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 3217-3223 Pearsall Avenue, in the East Bronx’s Allerton section.

There will be a total of 10 off-street parking spaces. Arnold Montag’s Great Neck, N.Y.-based AM/PM Design & Consulting is the architect of record. The 100-foot-wide, 10,000-square-foot property is currently occupied by a single-story house. Demolition permits were filed in June. The Gun Hill Road stop on the 5 train is seven blocks away.
Property owner Egris Haxhari has filed applications for a four-story, 16-unit residential building at 2953 Barnes Avenue, in Allerton, located four blocks from the Burke Avenue stop on the 2 and 5 trains.

Amenities will include off-street parking for eight cars, storage space for eight bikes, laundry facilities, and a 400-square-foot outdoor recreational area. Mohammad R.

The neighborhoods north of Bronx Park remain bastions of small, market-rate development.
