This 124-unit, mixed-use complex in the Melrose Commons section of the Bronx is located on Melrose Avenue between 156th and 157th Streets. It was the largest and newest project to be developed in the urban renewal area, at the time of its completion in September 2005.
Both residential and commercial components of this project have distinct, separate canopies to mark each entrance, while the ground floor contains 10,950 square feet of commercial space, a spacious community facility, and a distinctive lobby. The building also provides safety measures for its residents with a custom security office built into the ground floor. Also included in the plan is a laundry room with direct access to a private outdoor space and a view of the children’s play area.
The exterior of the building, massing, materials and color schemes remain respectful of the neighboring buildings, while establishing a distinctive character. Tree-lined sidewalks and lawn space provide privacy and a buffer from street and traffic noise. Forty-seven parking spaces are provided on-site.
