Building Studio Architects has revealed renderings of Blackstone Parc, an eight-story rental development in the Riverdale section of The Bronx. The structure will span 800,000 square feet and include 46 market-rate apartments. From Cipco Developers, the building will include two- and three-bedroom units with large open kitchens, shared laundry rooms, and private storage area for residents.
New renderings from Timber Equities offer a first look at a pair of multi-unit rental buildings on the rise in the Spuyten Duyvil and Riverdale sections of The Bronx. Based in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the developer is responsible for some of the new multi-unit properties approaching construction in these quiet upper-middle-class neighborhoods.
Permits have been filed for a 91-room dormitory at 6301 Riverdale Avenue on the College of Mount Saint Vincent campus, in The Bronx. The North Riverdale site is a sixteen-minute bus ride away from the Van Cortlandt Park subway station at 242nd Street, end of the line for the 1 train. The College’s Vice President of Operations Kevin DeGroat is listed as behind the applications.
There aren’t many architects nowadays who would expect to get the opportunity to work on a Gothic Revival Castle in New York City, but TRA Studios is doing exactly that in The Bronx’s Riverdale neighborhood. Instead of building a new one, they are redesigning Fonthill Castle to accommodate a new school for the College of Mount Saint Vincent.
Sometimes, the wheels of new development roll very slowly. It was close to two years ago that a proposal for three new houses in the Bronx’s Fieldston Historic District went before the Landmarks Preservation Commission. A revised (and scaled-down) proposal came before the commissioners last Tuesday, but there was, again, no approval.
