Construction applications have been filed with the New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) for a two-story residential conversion to a four-story residential development at 1315 Findlay Avenue in the Concourse section of the Bronx, south of Claremont Park, as indicated by YIMBY.
Located between East 169th and East 170th Street, the land is within walking distance of the 170th Street subway station, served by the B and D trains. Leo Brody of ZLB is listed as the owner of the apps.
According to YIMBY, the proposed 53-foot-high development will produce 8,702 square feet designated for residential space. The building will have 19 residences, most likely rentals based on an average unit size of 458 square feet. The masonry structure will also include a cellar, a 31 foot long backyard and a penthouse.
Boaz M. Golani Architect is listed as the reference architect.
Demolition permits are unlikely to be required since the two-story building on the site is part of the conversion. An estimated completion date has not yet been announced.
