One of the hundreds of vacant lots in the South Bronx is about to become supportive housing. A non-profit organization has filed plans for a six-story residential facility at 1084 Ogden Avenue in Highbridge, a western Bronx neighborhood just north of Yankee Stadium.
Property owner Ramon Aquino, doing business as an anonymous Bronx-based LLC, has filed applications for a three-story, single-family townhouse at 126 West 165th Street, in Highbridge, located less than a mile north of the 161st Street-Yankee Stadium stop on the 4/B/D trains. The townhouse will measure a total 2,538 square feet and will rise on a vacant, 16-foot-wide lot. The building will rise 35 feet above street level, which means ceiling heights will be generous, and there will be a single off-street car parking spot. Reza Khamcy’s Great Neck-based Icon Engineering is the applicant of record.
Property owner Mario Del Brun has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 1027 Nelson Avenue, in Highbridge, located six blocks from the 4 train’s stop at 161st Street/Yankee Stadium. The building will rise on a small, 19-foot-wide vacant lot and will measure just 3,083 square feet, which translates into average units of 771 square feet each. Bakhtiar Sahmloo’s Kew Gardens-based Tabriz Design Group is the applicant of record.
Great Neck-based Shelter Rock Builders has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 1355 Plimpton Avenue, in Highbridge, seven blocks from the 167th Street stop on the 4 train. The building will measure 4,769 square feet in total, which means full-floor units will measure 1,192 square feet; the fourth-floor unit will also feature a fifth-floor penthouse. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record, and the site’s former two-story house was demolished in the 1990s.
