Building applications have been filed with the New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) for a building permit for a 6-story mixed-use building at 3128 Bailey Avenue in the Kingsbridge Heights section of the Bronx, as the YIMBY reported.

Located between Albany Crescent and Fort Independence Street, the lot is two blocks from the 231st Street subway station, served by the 1 train. Yaniv Zohar is listed as the owner behind the apps.

According to LinkedIn, Yaniv Zohar is the founder of 57Group & Halston Construction + Development, a full-service construction and development company. “The company’s work spans over 16 years with experience in properties ranging from luxury homes and townhouses to multi-family buildings,” reads its LinkedIn description. “He is involved in all aspects of the development process, from site selection, planning, financing, construction and marketing.”

The proposed 65-foot-tall development will yield 28,377 square feet, with 27,115 square feet earmarked for residential space and 1,261 square feet for community facilities space. The building will have 40 residential units, most likely rentals, based on an average floor area of ​​677 square feet, according to YIMBY. The masonry structure will also include a cellar, a 30-foot-long backyard and 20 open parking spaces.

Baobab Architects is listed as the official architect. Demolition permits will likely not be required according to YIMBY as the land is vacant and an estimated completion date has yet to be announced.
