Two more additions to the Parkchester community in the southeast section of the Bronx are coming thanks to Galaxy Towers Apartments and New Haven Co. of NY. 1360 and 1364 Purdy Street will be the site of 16 new condominium units developed by Galaxy Towers Apartments, and 1358 Odell Street will have a mixed-use structure developed by New Haven Co. of NY.
Plans have been filed and the DOB Permit was issued in December 2016 for the first of two 4-story, 8-unit condos on Purdy Street in Parkchester. Galaxy Towers Apartments is working with architect, Michael Depasquale, to complete the project. The South building will cover 8,213 square feet, and each of the 8 units will be approximately 883 square feet. The North building will cover 6,654 square feet, and each of those apartments will be about 687 square feet. The construction will go up on a lot that is currently sitting empty. The two new buildings will be located just outside the Southeast corner of the 129-acres of land that make up the Parkchester Apartment Community between Starling Avenue and Westchester Avenue.
New Haven Co. of NY is working with Ling Li Architects on a mixed-use structure that will be developed at 1358 Odell Street in the Parkchester section of the East Bronx. The 6-story complex will have 4,400 square feet of commercial and community space on the bottom two floors and 7 apartment units on floors 3-6 that will be about 800 square feet each. The entire project will be just under 13,500 square feet.
The addition of new apartments for rent in Bronx NY seems to be increasing, but the need for affordable housing in the area still outweighs the number of units available. There is no completion date set for either of the new projects being developed in the Parkchester section.
