Prolific affordable housing builder Monadnock Development is planning a 16-story, 251-unit rental building in the West Farms neighborhood of the Bronx.

The developer will build a nearly 200,000-square-foot structure at 1923 West Farms Road, near the West Farms Square-East Tremont Avenue 2 and 5 train subway station and a block from the Bronx River, a construction permit application filed with the Department of Buildings Thursday shows.

Dattner Architects, which has designed other Monadnock buildings, is the project’s architect of record, according to the permit application.

The new building appears to be the sixth phase of the Compass Residences project, which it has been developing with Signature Urban Properties. The complex is expected contain more than 1,300 units across five acres and also includes affordable rental buildings at nearby addresses such as 1490 and 1500 Boone Avenue. It’s being built in conjunction with the city’s 17-acre West Farms Redevelopment Plan.

A representative for Monadnock did not immediately respond to a request seeking comment.
