Smile NEW YORK | 1665 Jerome Avenue | 136 FT | 13 FLOORS

Project: 1665 Jerome Avenue

The 13-story building will fill a long-vacant lot at 1665 Jerome Avenue, across the street from a ramp to the Cross-Bronx Expressway.

The development will reach 136 feet into the air and have 71 supportive housing units. Children aging out of foster care will live in the building, according to building permits filed back in 2012.

The housing will fill 58,000 square feet of community facility space on the fourth through 13th floors. The ground floor will host 4,600 square feet of retail, and a job training facility will occupy most of the second and third floors. The third floor will also have recreation space, a kitchenette, and offices for the non-profit running the building. Residents will be able to take advantage of a green roof and a shared roof terrace on the top floor.

The exterior will be modern and functional, and the facade will be clad in a mix of brick veneer, precast stone, and synthetic stucco. The design will certainly help revitalize the block, which is populated with auto shops, just like the rest of Jerome Avenue.

Body-Lawson Architects is designing the project.
