Bronx-based Midtown Interior Resource, a general contractor, has filed applications for a five-story, 15-unit residential project at 2145 Mohegan Avenue, located on the corner of Hornaday Place in the West Farms section of the Bronx. The new building will measure 13,845 square feet and its residential units should average 706 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Mohammad R. Badaly’s Mount Vernon, N.Y.-based firm is the architect of record. The 3,163-square-foot plot is occupied by a one-and-a-half-story house. Demolition permits have not been filed.
