Post Amendment Approval Issued for 806 East 170th Street in Crotona Park East, The Bronx

Permits have been updated for 806 East 170th Street, a seven-story residential building in Crotona Park East, The Bronx. Initial permits from Hershy Silberstein of Blue Shine Builders Inc. in 2022 called for a 44-unit structure under the 421A tax abatement program, which incentivized multi-family housing to be built on vacant or underutilized lots. Under the post-approval amendment (PAA), the scope has been expanded to 110 dwelling units. Because it went through a PAA process and a new permit was not issued, it will retain its 421A tax status, even though the program ended in June 2022.
