Back in January, YIMBY revealed some of the first renderings of Union Crossing, a new eight-story commercial project in the Port Morris section of the South Bronx. Today, the development team has returned with images of the building’s nearly completed interiors.
Permits have been filed for a 12-story apartment building at 260 Grand Concourse in Port Morris, Bronx. Located between East 138th Street and Major Deegan Expressway, the lot is steps away from the 138th Street subway station, serviced by the 4 and 5 trains. Jacob Schwimmer of JCS Realty Group is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The South Bronx is undergoing a major urban transformation as developers are continuing to reshape the area with a mix of adaptive-reuse buildings and new residential construction. Union Crossing is a new mixed-use project that will combine contemporary commercial office space and retail opportunities for newcomers to the historic neighborhood. It is designed by Woods Bagot, while the developers include Madison Realty Capital, The Altmark Group, The Bluestone Group, and Galil Management. JRT Realty is the exclusive leasing agent for the venture.
Permits were filed by developer 925 Capital to build an 8,500 square foot retail building at 101 Bruckner Boulevard, in the South Bronx neighborhood of Port Morris. Among the various retail tenants is a planned rooftop restaurant on top of the 18-foot tall, one-story structure, which YIMBY can now reveal.
Today YIMBY has the reveal for 111 Willow Avenue, an attractive new development coming to The Bronx’s booming Port Morris neighborhood, by Newman Design Architects. The industrial-inspired exterior takes influence from its surroundings. Residential and manufacturing buildings predominate in the vicinity, and the site is six blocks away from the Cypress Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the 6 train.
