Still home to Bronx's most expensive ZIP


The most expensive ZIP code in the Bronx shouldn’t be much of a surprise.

Amast, a construction wholesaler, deemed 10471 the king of the borough based on residential home transactions through the first six months of 2020.

It was one of four Bronx ZIPs to make the top 100 list. That finished ahead of Mott Haven’s 10454, Co-op City’s 10475 and Morris Park’s 10461.

The 10471 ZIP code primarily includes Fieldston, the Estates, Riverdale and North Riverdale — essentially the northern most part of the city between Van Cortlandt Park and the Hudson River.

There, median home sales jumped 11 percent in value compared to last year, moving it $999,000, according to Amast. That’s based on 11 residential deals that closed in the area, the most expensive being a $3.2 million home.

That ranked 39th overall in the city, in a list topped by Manhattan’s West Village in the 10014 ZIP code. There, home values jumped more than 82 percent, with a median sales price of $4.2 million across 54 closings.

Its neighboring Lower Manahttan ZIP code of 10013 was  a distant second with 129 deals bringing its median value to $3.1 million — down 14 percent from last year.

Mott Haven ranked 82nd with homes selling at a median of $745,000 so far this year, followed by Co-op City in 88th at $735,000.

Morris Park just made the list, coming in at 99th with a median sales price of $690,000 for homes there.


Planning commission restarts ULURP

Real estate development projects stalled by the coronavirus pandemic won’t be holding much longer.

The City Planning Commission says its Uniform Land Use Review Procedure clock will begin ticking again Sept. 14.

ULURP — the process intended to ensure construction projects are properly vetted through various city agencies and the public — was suspended by Mayor Bill de Blasio on March 16.

This past Monday, the planning commission restarted its own work reviewing land use applications that are not subject to ULURP, as well as ULURP applications that already were in public review before March 16.

This also gives community boards more time to get themselves back into the process since many of them — including Bronx Community Board 8 — don’t meeting during the summer months.

Planning commission meetings will continue remotely.
