Permits have been filed for a 12-story mixed-use building at 1074 Washington Avenue, in Morrisania, The Bronx. The area was originally part of the massive estate for the powerful Morris Family. The site is six blocks away from the Melrose train station, serviced by Metro North’s Harlem Line. Fifteen blocks away is the Prospect Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Bronx Pro Group will be responsible for the development. The firm is dedicated to creating and managing energy-efficient affordable housing. In the past, they have created passive housing projects, including 3365 Third Avenue.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 1228 Washington Avenue in Morrisania, The Bronx. The site is thirteen blocks away from the 167th Street Subway Station, serviced by the B and D trains. The Daniel Group will be responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 1225 Union Avenue, in The Bronx’s Morrisania neighborhood. The site is ten blocks away from the Intervale Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Fredi Bori of the Bori Construction Corporation will be responsible for development.
Another new addition to Morrisania, in The Bronx, is just months away from completion, at Melrose Commons North Site C, also known as Elton Crossing. YIMBY last reported on the building in September of 2014, when renderings were revealed. Briarwood Organization and Phipps Houses are responsible for development.
When it comes to integrating PTACs into new buildings, the outcome is almost always disastrous from both environmental and aesthetic perspectives. While the environmental problems are difficult or outright impossible to mitigate, YIMBY may have found one of the very first examples where the aesthetic issues have been successfully solved, in the Bronx’s Morrisania neighborhood, though whether the renderings for 1007 Union Avenue translate into reality remains to be seen.
