A South Bronx mixed-use development, dubbed the Thomas and Lilly Keller Manor, launched a housing lottery this week for 65 affordable units. Designed by Heritage Architecture, TLK Manor features two six-story buildings in Morrisania: 917 Westchester Avenue and 944 Rogers Place. The two buildings boast a unified design, seamlessly blending into one another. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 60 percent of the area median income can apply for units ranging from a $860/month studio to a $1,281/month three-bedroom.
A new building application was filed yesterday for a seven-unit condominium at 30 Thompson Street in Soho. New York-based Karim Rashid has been reported as the project’s designer, though Heritage Architecture is listed as the architect of record. The boutique development is led by a joint venture involving between the Weis Group, Walker Ridge, and the Mavrix Group
The permits detail the project will rise eight stories and 113 feet. The ground floor will house the lobby and off-street parking, while each of the high-ceilinged floors above will host just a single, floor-through residence. The mid-block site between Grand and Watts streets is located on a lightly-traversed stretch with an eclectic mix of building types and styles. The development will replace a one-story garage and will rise directly behind the glassy new condominium tower, 325 West Broadway.
