Morris Court, which began construction two years ago after demolishing almost an entire block (only one property owner did not sell), is nearing completion as the first development to take advantage of the Lower Concourse rezoning approved back in 2009.
The $69 million complex, when complete, will include 201 mixed low & middle income units for families with incomes ranging from approximately $28,595 to $90,700 per year. 25% of the units will be set aside for families that were formerly homeless.
Morris Court is located directly across from Lincoln Hospital at E 144th Street and Morris Avenue and just a few short blocks to the 2,4, & 5 trains at 149th Street and Grand Concourse.
Nearby amenities include the bustling 149th Street Corridor with shops, restaurants, offices, and the HUB which has the highest concentration of banks than anywhere else in the Bronx. Also within walking distance is the The Mall at the Bronx Terminal Market which includes, Target, BJ’s, Bed Bath and Beyond among its stores as well as the beautiful Mill Pond Park on the Harlem River.
To the south of the complex is the bustling Bruckner Boulevard corridor — a mere 10 minute walk at most — which includes local favorite restaurants and bars like Bruckner Bar and Grill, the Thai and Sushi restaurant Ceetay, and Charlie’s Bar and Kitchen which was recently named Best Bronx Bar by New York Magazine.
If the Special Harlem River Waterfront District Plan ever comes to fruition, Morris Court will also benefit from being a stone’s throw away from that section of the waterfront as well.
