Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 7 Terrace View Avenue in Marble Hill, Manhattan. Marble Hill is the northernmost region of Manhattan, and is the only portion of the borough that isn’t on an island. While it had been connected to the main island of Manhattan before, the US Army cut it off of the city for a canal to expedite shipping in the late 19th Century, and it was later connected to the Bronx in 1914 by filling in the old river. James Kwon will be responsible for developing a structure along the northern edge of the neighborhood, near where the old river used to be.
Nelson Management Group and L+M Development Partners are conducting a top-down renovation of the 32-story, 318-unit former affordable housing tower at 150 West 225th Street, in Manhattan’s Marble Hill. The outdoor deck abutting Spuyten Duyvil Creek will receive an extensive overhaul, featuring green space and cabanas. Dubbed The Promenade, the majority of the units are currently rent stabilized, but units are allowed to be converted into market-rate rentals if vacated, according to the Daily News. Renovations should wrap by 2016.
