A year ago, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr said that there was no gentrification taking place but either he was flat out clueless or lying—we’ll let you decide for yourselves.
Now, as the South Bronx Clocktower’s extension has reached its planned height of six stories, renderings have been revealed showing what will be the most luxurious development in The Bronx, something we don’t say lightly.
The new building will add 190 units to the existing 90 already at the landmarked Clocktower, a new fitness center, a game room, lounge, sports court, and an indoor sky-lit swimming pool.
The South Bronx skyline is set to forever change as development shifts gears towards the Harlem River Waterfront thanks to gentrifying developer, Keith Rubenstein of Somerset Partners and The Chetrit Group.
Renderings have been revealed for the first phase six planned towers.
On The Sound is City Island’s first condo development in 15 years and is a 43 unit project on 5 acres in gated community on the Long Island Sound.
With units listing from $488,000 to $988,000, this is easily one of the most expensive developments in The Bronx in a number for years.
120 West 180th Street, across from Bronx Community College, is a beautiful, 3,723 square foot mansion (as per public records) has been listed for sale for a mind-blowing $1.1 million. By the way, the real estate agent chose to say that the house is across from the “former” NYU campus rather than saying it’s across from Bronx Community College.
There’s no question that this Univeristy Heights mansion, which according to the listing has been in the same family for 60 years, is gorgeous and has been well maintained throughout the years but $1.1 million is far more than is supported by the local market in the neighborhood.
The gentrification of the South Bronx is in full swing despite denials by our borough president, Ruben Diaz Jr, that it isn’t happening.
Yesterday we reported on the expansion of the landmarked Clocktower Loft Apartments and today we share the exclusive story of the first market-rate condominiums coming to the Lower Concourse Rezoning Area.
The old 2 story factories at 221 E 138th Street at Canal Place has been torn down and in its place will rise a 7 story, 50 unit condominium development with ground floor commercial space according to Anthony Gurino of Tahoe Development which purchased the buildings for $2,800,000 in September 2015.
Rising adjacent to the historic Clocktower Loft building is a new 6 story, 128,340 square foot residential expansion adding 190 units to the 95 unit loft building—oh and did we mention the enclosed pool?
The rendering is from architectural firm Karl Fischer Architect who is the architectural firm listed on NYC’s Department of Building’s database. One has to scratch their heads as to why a firm that is so despised in NYC was chosen for the project.
