The massive South Bronx waterfront development planned by Somerset Partners and Chetrit Group is coming together–at least visually. CityRealty revealed a rendering of the second parcel of a two-parcel master plan that will eventually hold six residential towers and park space. Construction on the first three buildings within the first parcel at 2401 Third Avenue was approved last summer. This second parcel at 101 Lincoln Avenue will hold three more towers, 25 stories each, with a grand total of 826 apartments. The developers have long heralded this development as a game-changer for the South Bronx, but faced pushback after Somerset developer Keith Rubenstein attempted to rebrand the area as the “Piano District” and held a party that capitalized on the struggles of the Bronx in the 1970s, featuring burning trash cans and a bullet-ridden car.

The rendering, which comes from the expediters at JM Zoning, shows that two of the towers hug the Harlem River, while the third is situated along Bruckner Boulevard. The architect of record is Hill West, who designed the buildings with various masonry, colors and fenestration treatment.

Waterfront parkland, open to the public, will play heavily into the design of both parcels. Above, a schematic from the South Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation shows what that green space will look like.

The renderings above offer a look at the first parcel, located at 2401 Third Avenue, which will hold three towers–two at 20 stories and one at 25. The architect of record for this phase of the project is also Hill West.

Both parcels make up a site that’s 60,902 square feet total. While construction has started on the first phase, Department of Building permits have yet to be approved for the next three buildings at 101 Lincoln Avenue. The entire development site is a part of the Special Harlem River Waterfront District, which is expected to yield up to 5,000 units across the district and buildings as tall as 40 stories.
