City Council subcommittee greenlights MIH project in the Bronx

Quote:
A month after local officials defeated what was designed to be a trailblazing private development in Inwood, Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration can claim a major affordable housing victory in the Bronx.

The city council’s planning subcommittee on Wednesday approved the Mandatory Inclusionary Housing program at La Central, a 992-unit affordable housing project planned for the Melrose section of the Bronx. The project, publicly funded and developed, will head to a full Council vote next week.

“Nearly a thousand families in the Bronx will have new homes they can afford, with new services and recreation facilities that will strengthen this whole neighborhood,” de Blasio said in a statement.

at last there is movement on this mega-project --

per the project map above its on the A section south of westchester ave. -- this is the little silver next to where the 2/5 el train goes underground.

the whole section, including former parking lots, is fenced off for construction and the old post office/boxing gym in the middle of the site is being torn down.

i saw activity there yesterday and took a few pics.

nothing happening yet on the other B,C,D,E sites north of westchester.

Thanks mrnyc for the update. This is a big project for the Bronx. Actually, I expect the Bronx to be the next major boom spot. More so than Brooklyn. Just watch and see. I predict Queens being the number one spot in terms of new units and permits, and the Bronx in time will be 2nd. This is one borough that will be the next hot place to be. The demand is moving North. We've seen it with Harlem, and now, with several waterfront Parcels in and around the S. Bronx. Those themselves will host 1000's of units. Lots of potential, especially as the affordable housing program continues to advance. Hopefully a new 421a plan passes. That will really aid Queens and Bronx developments.

building A of this project, on the narrow sliver of land next to the subway and fronting westchester ave, between bergen ave and brook ave, is definitely moving.

there is a small crew there every day now tearing up the parking lots and digging pits. this was from yesterday:




by the way, on the other side of this block and fronting 149st, the sort of preview project for la central is well built out and now is all or almost fully occupied with a great grocery and a pretty nice mix of businesses. you can park on the roof for free if you go in there for something.


from last week:

The Bronx will just go up and up and up. It will be the next borough to see significant growth. If I was still investing in New York property, I'd buy things there. Made some nice cheddar on Harlem flips a number of years back.

^ haha -- good work taking advantage of the parking lot on the new grocery bldg roof!


there is a great article in the nytimes today that runs down all the current development action in the bronx -- here is the blurb about la central:



Similarly, the competition to build housing at a multi-lot site in the Hub, a Times Square-like store-filled intersection in the Melrose neighborhood, drew seven submissions. The winning bid was La Central, a five-building, 992-unit mixed-use project at Westchester and Brook Avenues.

Featuring a 50,000-square-foot Y.M.C.A. that will be only the second one in the Bronx, La Central will also have a rooftop telescope for a local school, a rooftop farm and a skate park, along with 45,000 square feet of new stores, including a sit-down restaurant in an area where there are few.

Approved in the fall, the $450 million project, which is still hammering out its public financing package, is expected to open its first phase in 2019.

The Bronx's enormous affordable housing complex, La Central, begins construction



Quote:
Construction is now underway on the massive La Central residential complex in the Bronx. On Monday, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that work had begun on the first of five buildings that will be part of the overall complex in Melrose.

This new development will provide quality homes and will support vulnerable Bronx residents in need allowing them to live independently and with dignity," Cuomo said in a statement. "By giving these individuals a roof over their head and a safe place to call home, we help create a stronger New York and a more vibrant Bronx for years to come."

The first of these buildings will come with 160 apartments, 97 of which will be supportive apartments for formerly homeless New Yorkers with special needs. FXFOWLE and MHG Architects are on board to design this $67 million project, and the building will come fitted with solar panels, a green roof, and a 4,500-square-foot green roof.

Overall, the La Central project will bring 992 apartments to Melrose, and the cheapest apartments here will start at $640 per month.
Other components of the development include retail, recreational spaces, and community facilities. Breaking Ground is in charge of the supportive housing, and Comunlife will look after the supportive services. Hudson Companies is also one of the developers on the project.

The complex is part of Cuomo’s plan to create 100,000 new units of affordable housing and 6,000 units of supportive housing.

very good la central news — its well underway.

however, where they started is a bit surprizing. instead of A as i would have guessed, its D at 152nd/bergen.

the whole northern section is fenced off and an active construction site — so C and E will probably be next.

lots A and B are ready to go, but remain forelorn at the moment.

from today — here is bldg D:

$335 Million In Financing Secured For Second Phase Of La Central Development, South Bronx



Quote:
The team behind the La Central Development has closed a deal for financing towards the construction of their massive mixed-use project in the Melrose Community of the South Bronx. This is one of the largest mixed-income projects currently under construction in New York City. Once complete, the project will span 1.1 million square feet, with five buildings and 992 units entirely devoted to affordable housing.

A public skate park and 25,000 square feet of retail space will also be included. The first phase was closed in 2016, and the final project is expected to receive financing by 2019. The total construction cost is expected to reach approximately $600 million.

$335 million has been secured for the construction of phase two of three for the project, which will include buildings at 556 and 600 Bergen Avenue. Combined, they will yield 496 units, a 50,000 square feet YMCA facility, the second studio for BronxNet TV, a Grow NYC rooftop garden, as well as space for retail on the ground floor. Solar panels will be built on the rooftop, with an estimated output of 250,000 watts.

more news — this massive project is now fully underway for all sections.

crews were hard at work yesterday digging up the plot for B building.

the southern A building site is blocked off into the street on westchester and bergen.




there are nice renders up for each structure too, this is A.

La Central, The Bronx's Catalytic Master Plan Begins Construction on Phase II







Quote:
Construction has now begun on phase two of The Bronx’s new 1.2 million-square-foot mixed-use development, La Central. This installment to the site’s intended total of 992 mixed-income affordable apartments will host 496 units across two buildings located at 556 and 600 Bergen Avenue in Melrose.
Along with the development team and community partners, New York City and New York State officials were in attendance at the groundbreaking ceremony last Friday, in celebration of their dedicated efforts to bring affordable housing and sustainable energy generation to the community.

Designed by FXCollaborative in collaboration with MHG Architects and Future Green Studio, the buildings will top out at 12 and 13 stories. Together, they will generate 250,000 watts of power through rooftop solar panels and will feature grey- and black-water recycling and natural gas-fired cogeneration.
The homes will range in size from studios to four-bedroom units, with just under half of the 496, or 220, designated as permanently affordable. Units will be available through a housing lottery, with maximum income limits ranging from $20,040 to $80,160 for individuals and $30,930 to $123,720 for a household of five.
