The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) has formally announced its development partners who will help complete a major rehabilitation project at Edenwald Houses, one of the oldest and largest public housing developments in the agency’s portfolio. The portfolio comprises 40 residential buildings spread across 48 acres in the Edenwald section of The Bronx.
Permits have been filed for a four-story building at the Rebekah Rehab and Extended Care Center. The site, 1118 Havemeyer Avenue, is on the north-west corner of the half-block owned by the rehabilitation, in the East Bronx. The 6 train is just seven blocks away, at the Castle Hill Avenue Subway station.

The buildings will measure between 4,155 and 4,285 square feet. Across all three, the residential units should average a family-size 1,326 square feet apiece. There will also be eight off-street parking spaces between the buildings, two of which will be housed in a garage. Gerald J. Caliendo’s Briarwood-based firm is the architect of record. The 7,089-square-foot plot is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed in August of last year.
