RXR topped out construction at Maven, a residential project in the Bronx's Mott Haven neighborhood

RXR Tops Out Construction at First Bronx Project

RXR has topped out construction of its inaugural South Bronx development, Maven. The 27-story, 200-unit residential tower is located at 2413 Third Ave. in Mott Haven and marks RXR’s first development in the borough. 

Company executives were joined at the topping-out ceremony by the project’s development team, including LRC Construction and CetraRuddy, and by local community groups. “RXR is honored to be developing much-needed apartments as the demand for housing in NYC intensifies,” said Jarrod Whitaker, SVP of residential operations at RXR.  

Whitaker said the topping out was “a testament to a strong development team, ongoing local hiring initiatives and all the incredible community partnerships RXR has made to invest directly in Mott Haven.” 

The tower will feature 60 rent-stabilized units for middle-income households, 81 onsite enclosed parking spaces and electric vehicle charging stations and 721 square feet of retail.
