The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is now reviewing updated proposals to renovate the landmarked Episcopal St. James Church and redevelop the parish’s campus at 2500 Jerome Avenue in the Fordham section of The Bronx. The updates arrive as an attempt to strengthen the dialogue between the religious structure and the proposed residential building.
The affordable housing lottery is now open for Metcalf Avenue Apartments, a 12-story mixed-use development at 1230 Metcalf Avenue in Soundview, The Bronx. The 219,546-square-foot corner building is designed by Dattner Architects and co-developed by The Acacia Network and Phipps Houses and will yield a total 249 units in a mix of studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. Available on NYC Housing Connect are 223 apartments for residents at 30 to 110 percent of the area median income, ranging in eligible income from $14,640 to $155,100.
A new mixed-use affordable housing property could soon break ground at 261 Walton Avenue in Mott Haven, The Bronx following review by the Department of City Planning. The proposals specify 208,849 square feet of built-up area that would support 206 rental apartments, ground-floor retail, and a cellar-level parking garage for 12 vehicles.
A new environmental assessment statement includes the first preliminary renderings of a 101,000-square-foot mixed-use development along the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn. Submitted as 300 Huntington Street, the proposed development sits on the border of the Carroll Gardens and Gowanus neighborhoods and comprises an assemblage of four adjacent lots.
Final renderings from Dattner Architects offer a clearer picture of a rising six-story building at 110 East 149th Street in The Bronx. The commercial property sits at the buzzing convergence of the Major Deegan Expressway and the 145th Street Bridge near the Harlem River Waterfront in the borough’s Grand Concourse Historic District.
