Alan Bell is forging ahead with his two-phase Williamsbridge Gardens project in the Bronx.

Bell filed plans with the Department of Buildings on Tuesday for an eight-story building with 83 units at 722 East 212th Street, the second part of Williamsbridge Gardens. This building will span about 64,000 square feet.

The developer had filed plans in mid-November for the first half of the project: a slightly larger eight-story building on a different lot at the same address with 87 units spanning about 76,000 square feet. That was the second-largest project filed in the Bronx last month, according to an analysis by The Real Deal.

Bell, whose company B&B Urban bought the site in March for $8 million, plans to develop both buildings at the same time. Amenities in the second phase of the project will include a computer lab and a library. It will include 51 units for formerly homeless families.

“Replacing the homeless that have been sleeping on mattresses around the perimeter of the property will be two new attractive buildings providing housing for low- and middle-income households with 30 percent of the units reserved for formerly homeless families with children,” Bell said.

B&B is also working on a 136-unit supportive housing building in the Bronx at 2700 Jerome Avenue and a 100-unit affordable housing building in Brooklyn at 315 Linwood Street.
