The next phase of the mammoth La Central development in the Melrose section of the Bronx is underway.
BRP Companies filed plans this week for the fourth building to go up in the mixed-income complex at 671 Brook Avenue. La Central is also being led by Hudson Companies.
Plans for the next building call for a 25-story, mixed-use tower that will span nearly 255,000 square feet, according to a buildings department application. It will have 254 apartments.
Representatives for BRP did not return requests for comment, and Hudson declined to comment.
La Central, a partnership between Hudson, BRP, the city, Breaking Ground, Comunilife and others, is a five-building complex that has been constructed in phases over the past several years. Once completed, the 1.1 million-square-foot project will add 992 affordable units to the neighborhood, a YMCA, stores and recreation and community space.
Construction on the first building in the development — a $67 million, 161-unit supportive housing complex developed by Breaking Ground and Comunilife — began in 2017 and the building opened its doors last fall. Construction is also underway at two other buildings Hudson and BRP are developing.
