A 17-story, 134-apartment building is rising alongside Heritage Field, the former site of Old Yankee Stadium, in the Bronx. The development at 810 River Avenue between East 157th and 158th streets is the first high-rise to be built in the area since it was rezoned for developments as tall as 30 stories in 2009, 6sqft says. Work at the site has been underway since May, but first images of the SLCE-designed building have just surfaced.
The building will have parking for 40 percent of its apartments, as per zoning requirements, meaning it will sit on top of a 61-car garage. Developer M. Melnick & Co. isn't skimping on the other amenities, either. The building will have a common laundry room, gym, media lounge, recreation room, two shared outdoor spaces, and 67 bike parking spots.
