Permits have been filed for a new four-story school within walking distance of Yankee Stadium. The lot, at 316 East 165th Street, is currently used for parking. The project is being developed by Bronx-based CG Educational Holding Corporation, and the school will be twelve blocks away from the 167th street stop on the B and D subway lines.
Applications have been filed with the Department of Buildings for a new eight-story building at 947 College Avenue, in the Bronx’s Fleetwood-Concourse Village neighborhood. Sion Hourizadeh of Sion Associates is listed as the architect, and the structure will measure 11,393 square feet in total, to be divided between 17 units. That translates into an average size of about 670 square feet, which is highly indicative of rentals. Gurwinder Singh of Kulwant Properties is listed as the developer.
An anonymous Bronx-based LLC has filed applications for a six-story, 20-unit residential building at 1135 Clay Avenue, in the West Bronx’s Fleetwood-Concourse Village section. The project will measure 20,695 square feet and its residential units should average 838 square feet apiece. The units will range from studios to two-bedrooms and will probably be rentals. Paul E. Jennings’s Brooklyn-based Freeform + Deform is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 4,876-square-foot site is currently occupied by a dilapidated two-story structure. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The 167th Street stop on the D train is eight blocks away.
A 10-story building that will offer housing for formerly homeless adults is taking shape at 316 East 162nd Street, in the Concourse Village section of the South Bronx.

Last week, we spotted plans for an 11-story hotel at 859 Sheridan Avenue, between 159th and 161st streets in Concourse Village
