Construction is now four stories above street level at 1930 Bedford Avenue in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, where a seven-story, 38-unit mixed-use project is under development. The latest photo is courtesy of prolific construction photographer Tectonic. The most recent building permits indicate the project will eventually measure 59,155 square feet. There will be 7,441 square feet of medical offices on the cellar through second floors, followed by the residential units, which should average 810 square feet apiece and are likely to be rentals. Nik Lavrinoff is the developer and Z Architecture is the architect. Completion is expected in 2017.
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.

Amenities include off-street parking for six cars, laundry facilities, and a rooftop terrace. Long Island City-based GKA Design Group is the architect of record.
