Earlier this month, permits were filed for a large residential development in a spear-shaped plot of land at 3254 and 3258 Parkside Place. The project is the largest development filed in the Norwood neighborhood since 3084 Webster Avenue, in October of 2015. Today, YIMBY has the first renderings for the project, sent along by its developer U.A. Builders, revealing both the full scope, and an optimistic prediction on the future of Metro North.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 2306 Webster Avenue, in The Bronx’s Belmont neighborhood. The area is predominantly residential, with nearly a dozen public parks, and the sizable Saint Barnabas Hospital. The site is ten blocks away from the Fordham train station, serviced by the Harlem, New Canaan, and New Haven lines for Metro North. Eleven blocks away is the Fordham Road subway station, serviced by the D trains. Kim Tasher is listed as behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a 12-story mixed-use building at 1074 Washington Avenue, in Morrisania, The Bronx. The area was originally part of the massive estate for the powerful Morris Family. The site is six blocks away from the Melrose train station, serviced by Metro North’s Harlem Line. Fifteen blocks away is the Prospect Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Bronx Pro Group will be responsible for the development. The firm is dedicated to creating and managing energy-efficient affordable housing. In the past, they have created passive housing projects, including 3365 Third Avenue.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 27 East 198th Street, in The Bronx’s Jerome Park neighborhood. The site is four blocks away from the Bedford Park Boulevard Station, serviced by the D trains, and five blocks away from the Kingsbridge Road subway station, serviced by the 4 trains. Vilson Lumaj is listed as responsible for the development.
A rendering has been released for the proposed building at 2065-2067 Ryer Avenue, in the Fordham Heights neighborhood of The Bronx. The structure will command a significant presence in the up-and-coming neighborhood. It will be the tallest building on a block otherwise occupied by three and four-story apartment blocks. That said, the immediate surrounding area is filled with buildings of similar height, such as the one depicted in the right corner of the rendering. UA Builders Group is responsible for the development.
