Two-family homes being built on Miles Avenue

 

A new set of homes will be built on the last vacant parcel along Miles Avenue.

The construction of 5 two-family homes is underway between Robinson and Davis avenues that will become 2626-2634 Miles Avenue, locateddirectly across from Ferry Point Park and Donald Trump’s new golf course, Trump Golf Links.

Four of the detached brick homes will feature over 2,500 suare-feet of residential space, and the fifth detached structure will be a bit smaller at about 2,400 square feet.

According to sources, each of the market rate homes will have a one or two-car parking garages and a driveway with enough room to park at least one more vehicle.

Each home will include luxury granite kitchens and hot water baseboard heating, while each ground floor unit will include a basement and backyard space.

The 3 bedroom over 3 bedroom homes will also be located within walking distance of the Bx42 stop at Harding and Emerson avenues.

The property, which was previously a filled in marshland/swamp-like vacant lot, will soon see a new row of family homes similar to the ones located on Emerson and Hosmer avenues and Hosmer and Robinson avenues on Miles Avenue, which were constructed in the 1990s.

“Once completed, these homes will contribute to a neighborhood that continues to see improvement,” said John Navi, CEO of Colonial Construction and Development, who is currently developing the property.

“These particular homes, which are very similar to the quality you would find in Manhattan, will provide high quality living for the families who will call this development their home in the future,” he added.

Navi added that families who live on the second floor of these townhouses will have great views of Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point Park, which was completed in May 2015.

He confirmed that construction of the two-family homes, which began last spring, would be completed sometime this summer.

The price range for these buildings has not yet been determined.

Community Board 10 did not comment on the new homes, saying that they had not heard anything negative about the development.

The only deterrent that may push potential tenants away is the possibility of alternate side parking in the near future.

Last month, NYC Department of Park & Recreation and NYC Department of Sanitation submitted a request to Community Board 10 to implement alternate side parking and street cleaning on Miles Avenue between Balcolm and Emerson avenues as well as Emerson Avenue between Miles and Schurz Avenue, that run alongside the eastern portion of the golf course.

If approved, street cleaning and alternate side parking would take place on from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Mondays.

DDC Interns Visit Bronx River House

 

Nearly 60 high school and college students from the NYC Department of Design and Construction’s summer internship program visited the Bronx River House in Star Light Park on Friday, July 22. DDC’s Public Buildings Cultural Unit’s Irene Albert and Robert Egelbert, the building’s principal architect Gregory Kiss and the Bronx River Alliance’s Greenway coordinator Claudia Ibaven showed students how Bronx River House’s design minimizes the impact on the surrounding environment through the use of a geothermal system. The Bronx River House will also be surrounded by a vegetative wall which shades the building in the summer and allows sunlight to enter during the winter to provide heating.

State of the art library to be built in WS

By Steven Goodstein

Bronx Times

A public hearing was recently held to discuss the plan for a brand new library for Westchester Square.

On Monday, June 27, at the Hutchinson Metro Center, where Community Board 10, Councilman James Vacca’s office, the Westchester Square Business Improvement District and the Westchester Square Merchants Association discussed the progress of a plan that will result in a brand new, state of the art library for the area.

The proposed two-story, glass structure, 12,000 square foot library will replace one of the two buildings that currently make up the Huntington Free Library at 9 Westchester Square, after the property is acquired by the city following the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure process.

As a part of the plan, the smaller of the two buildings on the property, a two-story red building that currently houses archives, will remain on the property to preserve the history of the Huntington Free Library, which dates back to 1892, intact.

It has also been said that the red building, which is adjacent to the library’s main building, will obtain landmark status so it will be properly preserved.

The new library will also include accommodations that neither of the are’s libraries currently provide.

Unlike the Huntington Free Library as well as the New York Public Library – Westchester Branch at 2521 Glebe Avenue, the new library will provide wheelchair accessibility for the senior population, among other improvements.

At Monday’s meeting, the vote was unanimously approved, after Community Board 10 expressed their interest and voted in favor of the project.

“This new library will be a unique but unquestionably positive addition to the community when it is built,” said Martin Prince, chairman of CB 10.

“I am very pleased to see that the approval process of this project is moving in the right direction,” said Councilman James Vacca, who allocated over $11 million to the project.

“This state-of-the-art library will bring a new kind of attention to this neighborhood and this district,” said Lisa Sorin, executive director of the Westchester Square BID.

“Everybody in the area will benefit from this project – seniors, high school students and businesses. This is definitely a win-win-win.”

“The fact that a brand new library is coming to Westchester Square is fabulous,” said Sandi Lusk of the Westchester Square Zerega Improvement Organization

Although the community’s overall opinion of the new library seems to be overwhelmingly positive, there are some who are not in support, stating that the proposed glass structure doesn’t conform to the area’s identity of cement and brick-style buildings.

Some want the library at another location. A brand new, six-story building on 1550 St. Peter’s Avenue wa suggested as an alternate site.

“I am definitely in support of this project, but I don’t see why the building on St. Peter’s Avenue wasn’t considered as a potential site – it even looks like a library,” said Lou Rocco, Westchester Square Civic Association president and a resident of the area for nearly 40 years.

The new library is expected to open in 2020.
