An anonymous Bronx-based LLC has filed applications for a six-story, 20-unit residential building at 1135 Clay Avenue, in the West Bronx’s Fleetwood-Concourse Village section. The project will measure 20,695 square feet and its residential units should average 838 square feet apiece. The units will range from studios to two-bedrooms and will probably be rentals. Paul E. Jennings’s Brooklyn-based Freeform + Deform is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 4,876-square-foot site is currently occupied by a dilapidated two-story structure. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The 167th Street stop on the D train is eight blocks away.
New renderings, depicting the final design, are now available for the 25-story, 115-unit mixed-use building under development at 565 Broome Street (a.k.a. 100 Varick Street), in Hudson Square. The renderings come as sales have launched for the project’s condominiums. The latest building permits indicate the structure will eventually encompass 322,154 square feet and rise 290 feet above street level to its roof, which doesn’t include the bulkhead.

Midtown East-based Kenneth Park Architects is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot lot is vacant. It currently connects to another vacant lot on the other side of the block, although the new building will be restricted to the 6th Street side.
