This is a new construction development that is half sold and moving fast. This particular unit is 763 square feet, but the building has all the way up to a 1491 square foot 3 bedroom. [You can check out the slideshow here]
All I have to say is, "Wow!" Every inch of these 763 square feet is blinged out to the nines -a balcony, common roof deck, common garden, granite lobby and hallways, 9 foot ceilings, maple cabinets, granite countertops and washer/dryer hookups! I really haven't seen many apartments this nice in the Bronx. And believe me, I've looked.
Add a 25 year tax abatement and your taxes are only $0.82 a month. I was trying to find the cents symbol on my computer, but couldn't. When is the last time you could put the price of anything in cents? The common charge for maintaining that common roof deck and garden and for keeping those granite hallways polished is only $286.10. So, all told your monthly costs for maintenance and taxes would only be $286.92.
Located to the immediate south of the Bronx Zoo, Park South is going to be an anchor of the Bronx Renaissance. I guess you would call this nabe West Farms, but as BoogieDowner reported, the names of Bronx hoods are often indistinct and fluid. Maybe we could rename this whole hood Park South... hmmmm?
Transportation is not bad. You can grab the 2/5 Train at E. Tremont Ave or the Metro North Train Station at Fordham or Tremont Stations and be at Grand Central in under 20 Minutes.
See the bling for yourself in the great video tour on the Full Listing.
There are Open Houses Sundays: 1-3 pm and Mondays: 6-8 pm. Check it out and report back.
Get in now while these puppies are still cheap. Or you'll find yourself fleeing to Buffalo in search of abandoned buildings in which to squat.
