Building plans for Chetrit Group and Somerset Parners' South Bronx development were finally approved earlier this summer, paving the way for the first three buildings of a 6-tower, mixed use master plan on the banks of the Harlem River. The approved plans for the first three towers, addressed at 2401 Third Avenue, will rise just to the northwest of the Third Avenue Bridge on a 60,902 square foot (1.5 acre) parcel nestled between pre-war manufacturing buildings, and the river. The additional three towers will be located on a site just east of the bridge.

Site Plan
Permits show Goldstein, Hill and West are the architects of record, and the three-tower scheme will host two 20-story buildings, and a 25-story building at the lot's northwestern corner. The buildings will soar from a common base, and each are articulated with several upper-level setbacks, providing several opportunities for outdoor spaces. According to filings, a short-list of amenities will include on-site parking, "tenant recreation rooms" and a common roof deck. Upper-floor apartments will offer unique perspectives of the city that include vistas of the Midtown skyline, Central Park, and the Harlem River River and its industrial bridges.

The project is situated at the southwestern corner of the much-talked-about Piano District which straddles Bruckner Boulevard in the Port Morris / Mott Haven neighborhoods of the borough. On the opposite side of the Third Avenue Bridge, Chetrit and Somerset own a larger full-block parcel at 101 Lincoln Avenue which, according to unapproved permits, will have 826 apartments spread similarly throughout several towers. Other projects slated for the area include 23 Bruckner Boulevard, whose renderings we just revealed last week, and a 100-unit affordable housing building at 255 East 138th Street.
