Affordable housing developer Xenolith Partners has filed applications for a five-story, 24-unit residential building at 451 East 159th Street, located on the corner of Elton Avenue in the Melrose section of the South Bronx. The project would measure 17,903 square feet and rise 45 feet to its rooftop.
The building’s 24 residential units would spread across the ground through fifth floors and should average 619 square feet apiece. Amenities would include bicycle storage and laundry facilities.
GF55 Partners is the architect of record. The 5,100-square-foot property is currently vacant.
