Affordable housing lotteries opened in Baychester, Kingsbridge; Ministry of Buildings targets 2024 development in Highbridge – Bronx Times

A vacant lot bordering Crotona Park is being transformed into a seven-story mixed-use building. Permits were filed on April 22 for vacant land at 733 Crotona Park North near the 174th Street subway station – which are served by lines 2 and 5 – which proposes a 70ft high development producing 62,300 square feet of residential space and approximately 13,240 feet of community space.

There is no timeline for the completion of the projects, but construction will not require a demolition permit as the land is vacant.

Affordable Living NY’s Elena Borokhovich is listed as the owner behind the applications, while Menzak Architect is listed as the official architect.

Between Washington and Third Avenues at 497 E. 166th St. in the Morrisania section, permits for a 46-unit development producing 31,392 square feet for residential space and 8,199 square feet for commercial space have been filed by Anthony Verrelli .

The building is expected to withstand a 74 foot drop and will most likely include rentals averaging 682 square feet, with additional community and masonry space. No timeline has been announced for the project and demolition permits for the site, which is near Freeman Street tube station, have not been filed.

And by spring 2024, a 16-unit multi-family rental building is set to open in the Kingsbridge section, thanks to permits filed by the city’s Buildings Department. The development includes two lots at 2838 and 2840 Webb Avenue which will be converted into a pair of two interconnected four-story buildings.

The building will be designed by Badaly & Badaly Architecture and Engineering, and each building will comprise 6,960 square feet of residential area. The development will include a mix of studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments, Department of Buildings sources told The Bronx Times.

The new development will replace a low three-family house that was built around 1920.
