The permit also called for basement space and 146 enclosed parking spaces.

Nearby public transport options include underground lines 4, 5 and 6, as well as the M125 bus.

With more luxury buildings coming up in Mott Haven, thanks to zoning, rents have risen over the past decade and a half. According to the NYU Furman Center, average real gross rent in Mott Haven and Melrose increased from $860 per month in 2006 to $1,120 per month in 2021, a jump of 30.2 percent. As of August 2023, one-bedroom rent in the neighborhood averaged $2,550 per month, up 5 percent from the same period last year, according to Zomper.
