Two new 25-story residential towers are planned for 200 East 135th Street, next to the Major Deegan Expressway. Located in the upcoming Mott Haven section of the South Bronx the development is being hailed as the largest ground-up project the neighborhood has seen in decades.
Each building will reach 270 feet into the air and hold a combined 465 apartments. They’ll split across 346,632 square feet of residential space, and the average unit will measure 745 square feet. Apartments will begin on the third floor, with 19 units, followed by 24 units per floor on the fourth through eleventh stories, 21 units each on the 12th through 21st floors, 17 units on the 22nd, 13 on the 23rd, and then nine and five units respectively on the top two floors.
The ground floor will house two commercial spaces spanning 5,900 square feet, in addition to a rec room and 128-car garage. Amenity spaces, laundry, and storage for residents will occupy the cellar. And another 78 parking spots will fill the second floor. Overall, the project will have 206 parking spots, which is about 20 more spaces than required by the zoning code.
The buildings will consist of cast-in-place concrete shear walls, columns and slabs with steel structures at the top for adornment and granite piers along each elevation.
