Back in August of 2016, YIMBY posted the permits and then the initial reveal for an affordable senior housing building coming to 1017 Home Street, in the South Bronx. Now, we have a substantially revised version of the project to share, thanks to its architect, Body Lawson Associates.
A year and a half ago, YIMBY wrote about a pair of affordable rental buildings headed for the rent-stabilized Lafayette Boynton complex in the Soundview section of the South Bronx. Now, Nelson Management Group and L+M Development are breaking ground on the two towers at 1520 and 1530 Story Avenue.
Last week was busy at the Bronx Department of Buildings, with filings for a police station in Melrose and a number of mid-sized affordable housing projects throughout the borough. One non-profit filed applications for an eight-story senior housing development at 909 Beck Street in Longwood, in the southeastern Bronx.
The South Bronx hotel boom is picking back up again. Last week, plans were filed for a 10-story hotel at 2568 Park Avenue, in an industrially zoned section of Mott Haven.
An 11-story building is nearing completion at 926 Sedgwick Avenue in the Highbridge section of the Bronx. At 117 feet high, the building stands as a minor but noticeable addition to the Harlem River skyline, perched upon the high river bank alongside both pre-war buildings and recent residential developments that flank the Major Deegan Expressway. Listed as a “transient hotel” in the building permits, the property will feature 64 units spread across 29,370 square feet of its 33,000-square-foot interior. Gerald J. Caliendo of Caliendo Architects is the applicant of record. Prasanna Venkatesha of Sita Ram LLC is listed as the owner.
