                              Working with The Stagg Group, one of the Bronx’s most prominent developers, Canas Solutions is helping to realize this 11-story, 142,000 square foot, mixed-use building on Webster Avenue.

                               

                              Due to the nature of the project as a new multi-use development on a previously undeveloped property, municipal approval was required from various city agencies including the Department of Buildings, MTA Metro North, HPD, NYC Waterway Revitalization Program, NYC Office of Environmental Remediation, the Office of the Attorney General, and Enterprise Green Communities. Canas Solutions helped to coordinate all the necessary documentation to facilitate the approvals process.

                              In total, Canas Solutions was asked to help rollout its four NYC stores including the flagship store on 5th Avenue, as well as locations in Cooper Square, Chelsea, and SoHo. Canas Solutions facilitated the approvals for Alteration Type-2 Build-Out, fire alarm and sprinkler applications.

                              Continuing its work with The Stagg Group, Canas Solutions worked on this mixed-use structure on Van Cortlandt Avenue in the Bronx slated to be completed in 2019.

                               

                              This 13-story building features residential units as well as a community facility in the basement and the site needed to maximize the number of apartment units while staying within New York’s Housing and Preservation Development (HPD) requirements.

                               

                              The building is situated on a site that is in close proximity to two MTA subway tunnels running. One of the tunnels runs directly under the proposed building. This obstacle required significant coordination between the various permitting agencies.

                              3595-3599 Broadway is a 12-story mixed-use building that is part of a community redevelopment project spearheaded by Columbia University. This commitment to redevelopment aims to provide affordable housing for residents living in the area of Manhattanville in West Harlem, where Columbia had built a campus extension.
