Dunn Development Corporation has filed applications for a 12-story, 121-unit residential building at 1812 Vyse Avenue, in the Crotona Park East section of the West Bronx. The project will measure 104,519 square feet and rise 115 feet to its roof. The residential units, which will be rentals according to a report by The Real Deal, should average 837 square feet apiece. Amenities will be located on the ground floor, followed by apartments across the second through 12th floors. Dattner Architects is the architect of record. The 15,151-square-foot site is currently vacant.
A project that would redevelop the long-vacant, nine-story hospital building at 82-41 Parsons Boulevard, in Jamaica Hills, formerly known as the Triboro Hospital for Tuberculosis and presently called the “T Building,” is slowly moving through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP). Dunn Development Corp. is proposing a 205-unit mixed-use conversion, where 130 of the apartments would rent at bel0w-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. The remaining 85 units would be set aside as supportive housing for homeless individuals. There would also be 12,000 square feet of space for the Queens Hospital Center, located nearby, and 8,000 square feet of community facility space, DNAinfo reported. The Health and Hospital Corporation’s Board of Directors has approved the project, as well as Community Board 8. The City Council, which almost always defers to the wishes of the local council member, has not yet voted on the project. The area is represented by Council Member Rory Lancman.
The northwestern Bronx has become one of the few places in New York City where developers can build apartments relatively cheaply. Now prolific affordable developer Dunn Development has filed plans for a project in Norwood, a neighborhood just north of Bronx Park.
