New Three-Story, Three-Unit Residential Building Coming To 2088 Valentine Avenue, Fordham Heights

A Bronx-based property owner has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential project at 2088 Valentine Avenue, in the West Bronx’s Fordham Heights section. The building will measure 4,684 square feet and its full-floor residential units should average a family-sized 1,561 square feet apiece. The 18-foot-wide, 1,808-square-foot property is was occupied by a three-story townhouse until it was demolished back in April. It was demolished under emergency declaration due to a six-alarm fire that damaged the structure in late 2015. Anthony Hatziioannou’s Jericho, N.Y.-based architecture firm is the architect of record.
