Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 1728 Townsend Avenue, in the Mount Hope neighborhood of The Bronx. The project is ideally located between two subway stations. Two blocks east is the 174-175th Street station, serviced by the B and D trains, with the 176th street station two blocks north, serviced by the 4 train. Luce Popaj will be responsible for the development.
Redevelopments with thousands of residential units aren’t particularly common in New York City, however, the past several months have brought proposals for such projects to ULURP from several locations, including the tentative 1,642-unit expansion of Lenox Terrace, in Harlem. Today, YIMBY has the first look at plans for 2,200 new units proposed for the former Peninsula Hospital site, in Edgemere, Queens.
Permits have been filed for a ten-story mixed-use building at 161-11 132nd Avenue, in Rochdale, Queens. The site is about a mile away from the Locus Manor train station, serviced by the Long Island Railroad. Fifth Avenue Community will be responsible for the development. The organization is dedicated to creating affordable housing, educating, advocacy, and workforce development.
The Bronx boom continues apace, and today, new applications are up for a residential development at 174 Marine Street, in the borough’s City Island neighborhood, a fair ways away from any public transit.
The official Census guesswork for 2017 has now been released, showing a gain of 7,272 individuals across the Five Boroughs, and a drop of over 2,000 people in Brooklyn. While the actual Census in 2010 was decried as leaving hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers missing from the count, it seems that whoever was behind the calculations for 2017 may have been even more incompetent, with changes to the borough-by-borough tallies painting a picture that makes no sense whatsoever.
