893 Eagle Avenue Proposal Enters Mayoral Review

An application proposing a supportive housing development, at 893 Eagle Avenue in the Bronx's Woodstock neighborhood, is approaching the finish line. Having navigated almost the entire public review process so far, it has already been evaluated by the Community Board, the Borough President, the City Planning Commission (CPC), and the City Council. Following approval from the City Council, the application is now in the hands of the NYC Mayor's Office, which can either choose to veto the proposal or do nothing at all; the latter of which will result in its final approval.

Developed by Housing Options and Geriatric Association Resources (H.O.G.A.R. Inc), the new building would contain 83 residences for low-income community residents and individuals living with HIV/AIDS. Designed by Urban Architectural Initiatives, the 14-story structure would stand 148 feet tall and total 55,324 square feet. In addition to supportive housing, it would feature a cellar and a sub-cellar (due to the property's steep grade) containing a lobby, counseling offices, and multipurpose rooms.

In order to facilitate the project, H.O.G.A.R. Inc is requesting a number of necessary actions, including a zoning map amendment, a zoning text amendment, and a special permit.
