The Bronx is becoming home to many new developments throughout its various neighborhoods and the development boom isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. One of the latest developments to take shape is an 11-story rental building at 2763 Morris Avenue in Bedford Park.
The luxury project is being touted as the first of its kind for the neighborhood, which historically has been considered a peaceful enclave full of historic tenements and row houses. Developed by Alex and Eric Berkovich of Universal Contracting, the project has introduced a residential building that boasts “modern urban living” in this lesser known section of the Bronx, designed by James McCullar Architecture with interiors by Ana Monasher.
The building offer 75 apartments and is a mix of primarily one- and two-bedrooms with just a few studios sprinkled in. The individual units aren’t laden with over-the-top finishes but does offer subtle elegance that includes open floor plans, contemporary kitchens with subway tile backsplashes, high ceilings, oversized windows, and central air conditioning/heating. The views are pretty stunning as well, looking out onto the New York Botanical Gardens, Fordham University, and the Manhattan skyline.
As for building amenities, 2763 Morris Avenue offers those that are typical of most new buildings these days. There is a part-time doorman, fitness center, a laundry room, a tenant’s lounge, bicycle storage, and a 9th floor sun terrace.
There are currently six apartments that are up for grabs, with a studio that’s asking $2,285/month; one-bedrooms asking from $1,755 to $2,540/month; and two-bedrooms that are renting between $2,075 to $2,310/month. Leasing is being handled exclusively by Douglas Elliman.
