South Bronx affordable housing developer SoBRO has filed plans for a 12-story residential building in Inwood, records filed with the city Wednesday show.

Plans call for a 135,000-square-foot residential building at 1769 Fort George Hill, at the corner of Dyckman Street and Nagle Avenue. The building would have 123 residential units spread across 119,000 square feet, as well as a 16,000-square-foot community facility, according to paperwork filed with the city’s department of buildings. That “community facility” is, in fact, a church, complete with a daycare, the sanctuary, a community room and offices. The residential portion of the building will have a lobby, gym, and bicycle room.

SoBRO’s CEO Steven Brown was not available for comment.

Property records show SoBro acquired the property for $275,000 in 2007.

A spokesperson for SoBRO said that the nonprofit organization occasionally develops housing for low-income tenants.
