A new set of homes will be built on the last vacant parcel along Miles Avenue.

The construction of 5 two-family homes is underway between Robinson and Davis avenues that will become 2626-2634 Miles Avenue, locateddirectly across from Ferry Point Park and Donald Trump’s new golf course, Trump Golf Links.

Four of the detached brick homes will feature over 2,500 suare-feet of residential space, and the fifth detached structure will be a bit smaller at about 2,400 square feet.

According to sources, each of the market rate homes will have a one or two-car parking garages and a driveway with enough room to park at least one more vehicle.

Each home will include luxury granite kitchens and hot water baseboard heating, while each ground floor unit will include a basement and backyard space.

The 3 bedroom over 3 bedroom homes will also be located within walking distance of the Bx42 stop at Harding and Emerson avenues.

The property, which was previously a filled in marshland/swamp-like vacant lot, will soon see a new row of family homes similar to the ones located on Emerson and Hosmer avenues and Hosmer and Robinson avenues on Miles Avenue, which were constructed in the 1990s.

“Once completed, these homes will contribute to a neighborhood that continues to see improvement,” said John Navi, CEO of Colonial Construction and Development, who is currently developing the property.

“These particular homes, which are very similar to the quality you would find in Manhattan, will provide high quality living for the families who will call this development their home in the future,” he added.

Navi added that families who live on the second floor of these townhouses will have great views of Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point Park, which was completed in May 2015.

He confirmed that construction of the two-family homes, which began last spring, would be completed sometime this summer.

The price range for these buildings has not yet been determined.

Community Board 10 did not comment on the new homes, saying that they had not heard anything negative about the development.

The only deterrent that may push potential tenants away is the possibility of alternate side parking in the near future.

Last month, NYC Department of Park & Recreation and NYC Department of Sanitation submitted a request to Community Board 10 to implement alternate side parking and street cleaning on Miles Avenue between Balcolm and Emerson avenues as well as Emerson Avenue between Miles and Schurz Avenue, that run alongside the eastern portion of the golf course.

If approved, street cleaning and alternate side parking would take place on from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Mondays.
