    Default Exterior Street Hotel

    There hasn't been much happening at the lot on E. 146th Street between Gerard Avenue and Exterior Street. But it seems there has been some new activity recently. They have posted this architectural drawing recently, and seemingly updated the work permits. Hopefully it is a sign that life breathes anew there. (Original completion date: mid-2013. New completion date as per new "What's Going On Here?" signage: April 2016.) This looks to be a good, substantial hotel, significantly higher than neighboring buildings. This will be a great spot for a hotel, which should attract a lot of folks looking for discounts over Manhattan rates. It's two blocks from the 2, 4 and 5 trains, and right off the Deegan. By my reckoning, this is the third major building underway in the Lower Concourse Rezoning, after a new school at 144th & Park, and the Morris Court affordable housing.

    I'm working on a midsized residential building in the south Bronx that should be pretty nice. Though value engineering is a long way off from now...

    The interior of the former bowling alley at the southeast corner of E. 158th Street and River Avenue is being completely stripped/gutted. Below is a bad photo I snapped of some of the dumpsters being moved out front. I post this only so that in the event that this is an early sign of some sort of large new residential development coming to this site, you read about it here first!!!!

    This will be called High Hawk Apartments, though Independence Plaza would seem to be a more apt name.

    Probably, much like that building off to the left there. Very cool mural though.

    Does anyone know what is going on at 294-296 E. 163rd Street? A couple of semi-detached row-houses have been demolished.

    The Bronx is getting a brand new neighborhood

    Cromwell-Jerome would create a residential and retail corridor between Highbridge and the Grand Concourse, according to Department of City Planning study.

    BY Denis Slattery


    The intersection of Jerome and Cromwell Aves. makes up part of the southern boundary that will define the new neighborhood of Cromwell-Jerome.

    The city is planning a new neighborhood in the Bronx.

    The Department of City Planning gave the Daily News an inside look, and a private tour, of the 57-block valley between the Grand Concourse and Highbridge that could soon be known as “Cromwell-Jerome.”

    The area, over-burdened with auto shops, parking lots and self-storage facilities, is ripe for retail and residential development, according to a new study unveiled by the city on Tuesday.
    Because we’re in effect creating a new neighborhood here, and knitting together existing neighborhoods, we have to bring everyone together around that.
    “Because we’re in effect creating a new neighborhood here, and knitting together existing neighborhoods, we have to bring everyone together around that,” Carol Samol, the Bronx director of the Department of City Planning told The News. “We are proposing this approach because of the needs of this community.”

    The city will involve multiple agencies in planning the new neighborhood, Samol said, keeping an eye on supporting economic development and affordable housing, improving parks and making the streets safer for pedestrians.

    The project will support Mayor de Blasio’s housing plan, which calls for 200,000 affordable units to be built or preserved over the next decade.
    A cornerstone of that blueprint is to encourage local involvement.


    Cromwell Ave., near 170th St., is a collection of auto shops and one-and-two-story buildings that could be the heart of a new residential and retail
    corridor, according to the Department of City Planning.


    — and residents said they will be happy to oblige.

    “This is definitely a bottom-up approach and we’re thrilled to see this,” said Jose Rodriguez, the district manager of Bronx Community Board 4, which has been pushing for an analysis of the under-utilized area for years.

    The city hopes to work with area non-profits such as New Settlement in finding ways to add affordable housing to the neighborhood.


    The low-lying valley at the heart of Cromwell-Jerome separates the towering Highbridge residential district from public transportation and could become a vibrant new neighborhood with the addition of affordable housing, jobs and open spaces.

    The city will hold a series of community meetings for residents to weigh in about the future of the area, which will include the rezoning of the Jerome Ave. corridor.

    Rezoning the strip of one-story shops under the elevated 4 train tracks, which is predominantly heavy commercial and light industrial, would allow for mixed-income residential development, as well as encourage retail activity, Rodriguez said.

    “Community outreach will be a key component to this,” Rodriguez added. “It’s nice to see the city is listening.”

    Oh no, all of those timber houses along there are gorgeous.
