The Bronx boom continues apace, and today, YIMBY has the reveal for building two of the Concourse Village West affordable housing project, designed by Aufgang Architects, which will rise at 702 Grand Concourse, in Concourse Village.
With Harlem’s 125th Street seeing a proliferation of new developments in recent years, it should come as no surprise that twenty blocks to the north, the 145th Street Corridor is also growing once again. Building applications have been filed for an eight-story building at 210 West 145th Street, between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Adam Clayton Powell Jr Boulevard, on a lot that is currently vacant.
Coney Island is currently seeing a resurgence in development both big and small, and today, YIMBY has the first details for a proposal by Arker Companies for a new building at 2828 West 28th Street, submitted in a rezoning dubbed Sea Park North, in the northern blocks of the neighborhood.
When it comes to integrating PTACs into new buildings, the outcome is almost always disastrous from both environmental and aesthetic perspectives. While the environmental problems are difficult or outright impossible to mitigate, YIMBY may have found one of the very first examples where the aesthetic issues have been successfully solved, in the Bronx’s Morrisania neighborhood, though whether the renderings for 1007 Union Avenue translate into reality remains to be seen.
In between the 4 train’s 176th Street stop and the B and D trains’ stop at 174-175th St Station, in the Bronx’s Mount Hope neighborhood, new building applications have been filed for a sizable project that will have a total construction area of almost 110,000 square feet. That will be divided between a community facility component of 8,479 square feet, to be used by a basketball court and gymnasium on the ground floor, and 88,996 square feet of residential space, to be split between 103 units. With an average unit size of about 850 square feet, rentals are likely. The structure will rise 14 floors in all, and Aufgang Architects is designing, while Procida Companies is the developer.
