Property owner Yair Bohadana has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1173 Tinton Avenue, in Morrisania, six blocks north of the Prospect Avenue stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The building will measure 5,324 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 665 square feet apiece. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record, and the site’s two-story predecessor was demolished in 2001.
Avi Baranes has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit mixed-use building at 352 Willis Avenue, in Mott Haven, six blocks from the 6 train’s stop at 3rd Avenue – 138th Street. The building will measure just 4,223 square feet, and will include 1,425 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Above, full-floor residential units will average 1,400 square feet, indicative of condos, which would be big news for this part of the Bronx. Long Island-based Shahriar Afshari is the architect of record, and the corner lot comes vacant.
