New construction permits have been filed for a 17-story mixed-use building at 1761 Jerome Avenue, in The Bronx‘s Mount Hope neighborhood. The filing includes a mix of 63,093 square feet of residential space, 52,949 square feet of community space, and 7,538 square feet of commercial space, with a total scope of 139,271 square feet. The development lists Kyle Ervin of Services for the Underserved, a social services organization, as the owner behind the applications. The non-profit has developed several supportive and affordable housing buildings in the borough.
Services for the UnderServed
The city and a group of developers broke ground Monday on an 11-story affordable and supportive housing development in the University Heights section of the Bronx.
The South Bronx continues to boom with new affordable and supportive housing projects. Non-profit Services for the Underserved hopes to build a seven-story apartment building at 1434 Undercliff Avenue, in the Highbridge section of the Bronx.
Towards the end of last summer, foundation work was underway for a six-story, 79-unit affordable residential building at 1700 Broadway, in Ocean Hill, a block from the Chauncey Street stop on the J and C trains. Now, the structure is five stories above street level, per Brownstoner, and another six-story, 55-unit affordable building by the same developers is four stories up a block to the north, at 1676 Broadway. All units will be rented at well below-market rates and 7,200 square feet of ground-floor retail space is planned. Services for the Underserved and Alembic Community Development are developing, while Peter Woll is the architect. Completion is expected in early 2016.
