Starting Oct. 1, managers at a new multi-family building in the Belmont section of the Bronx will begin accepting leasing applications. 

The Crotona — located at 2781 Crotona Ave. — is a nine-story, 90-unit apartment complex. Owned by Gogia Builders and operated by the Manhattan-based Living New York real estate brokerage, the building will include a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units ranging in size from 312-780 square feet. Of the 90 apartments, 27 of them will be affordable units.

The building will have a superintendent and virtual doorman, and various amenities including a gym, garage parking, coworking space, lounge, rooftop, landscaped deck and an elevator. Individual units also include central air. 

“We look forward to expanding our footprint in The Bronx,” said Adrian Savino, managing director at Living New York. “This … development will provide an area that is supply deprived with beautiful luxury rentals on both the affordable and market rate side.” 

The building is located just south of Fordham Road on the west side of the Bronx Zoo. It’s close to the Metro-North Harlem Line and the B and D trains to the west, as well as the 2 and 5 trains across Bronx Park to the east.  

After leasing launches at the beginning of October, Savino said they’ll be working to move people in as soon as possible.

The Crotona is one of the latest developments to pop up in the Bronx. 

Just this summer, developers also secured necessary funding for another phase of a massive Hunts Point project, a lottery opened for leasing at a new luxury building in Mott Haven, and an affordable complex in Williamsbridge reported its apartments were almost full. 

And earlier this month, Bronx Borough President Vanessa Gibson and New York City Councilmember Althea Stevens broke ground on a supportive housing development for seniors in Highbridge.
