A rendering has been revealed of the newly planned eight-story, 166-unit mixed-use project at 546 East 142nd Street, a.k.a. 349 St. Ann’s Avenue, in the South Bronx’s Mott Haven section. The project, dubbed The Park Haven, will contain about 13,000 square feet of space for a grocery store, as well as 9,000 square feet of community space for a workforce development program, DNAinfo reported. All of the apartments, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, will rent at below-market rates. Thirty percent will be designated for homeless families, while the remaining 70 percent will be offered through the affordable housing lottery.
In June of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 36-unit mixed-use building at 306 West 142nd Street, in northern Harlem. Since then, a rendering has surfaced of the project, and concrete pouring for the foundation is underway, Harlem+Bespoke reports. The structure will encompass 38,991 square feet, of which 2,036 square feet of space will be designated for a ground-floor community facility. The residential units should average 650 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments, and amenities include storage space for 18 bikes, laundry, an outdoor space on the ground-floor, and a rooftop terrace. Montroy Andersen DeMarco is designing, although EDI International is currently serving as the architect of record. Heritage Real Estate Partners is the developer. Completion can probably be expected in 2017.
