Rendering of 460 New York Avenue

Renderings of Bozzuto’s planned 63-unit condominium project for New York Avenue have been published on the project architect’s website.

The 11-story project designed by WDG Architecture will be located at 460 New York Avenue (map), and will offer studio, one-bedroom and one-bedroom with den units. There will be 54 below-grade parking spaces, a fitness center and a massive penthouse with a large outdoor space.

No construction timeline has been announced for the project, but here is more on the development from WDG:

This project preserves a three-story historic warehouse building as the base for a new modern metal and glass tower. At the same time, the tower was designed to stand out from the base so that existing building was recognizable as being from another era. The new tower features bay windows that align and give organization to the overall project, and are angled to give residents impressively long-views looking up New York Avenue.

The new project would be following in the footsteps of CityVista and Yale Lofts, condo developments built over the last decade that represented the changing face of the area. The main difference between 460 New York Avenue and those projects is that it would be much smaller.

    So will they also be removing the freeway overpass sign as well? If not, they should re-add it to the rendering so we can all experience its charming effect on the neighborhood.

    ^ I was wondering that too. And that awful sign has some pretty heavy footers as well, what will they do, move it down the street or replace it with a smaller sign?

    ^ The real question is whether the homeless people will still be able to take dumps against the side of the building.

    There is a police substation a block or two west of the site on NY Ave, I'm sure foot patrols will increase to keep that sort of behavior away. There are still alot of crazies roaming around...

    I don't believe that police substation is a typical one. I think it is just for traffic cops. I don't think it generates any foot patrols or other benefit to the neighborhood.
