A massive residential project could be on its way to the Bronx from prolific Brooklyn construction boss Joel Braver.

Braver’s firm Express Builders pre-filed plans on Wednesday with the city’s Department of Buildings for a roughly 293,000-square-foot residential complex at 1580 Story Avenue in Soundview. It would stand 19 stories and 197 feet tall, and include 562 residential units. Newman Design Architects will design the building.

It’s the third-largest filing by square footage in the Bronx this year, and the biggest by unit count, according to an analysis by The Real Deal. (The next largest by unit count is L+M Development Group’s 23-story tower at 575 Exterior Street, which would feature 542 apartments.)

Braver did not respond to a request for comment.

His other projects include a 14-unit residential building at 219 Hudson Street in Soho and a 45-unit residential building at 46 Cook Street in Williamsburg.
