3 West 29th Street [Curbed]: Interior demolition of the Bancroft Building, at 3 West 29th Street, is currently underway; completion is expected “within six to eight months.” HFZ Capital’s plans for the site remain vague, but it has air rights totaling 350,000 square feet.

500 Exterior Street [Welcome2TheBronx]: Work has begun on a 12-story hotel building within the Lower Concourse Rezoning District at 500 Exterior Street, in Mott Haven. Development of the Harlem River, even outside of the rezoned district, holds great potential; under-utilized land is being snapped up borough-wide. The influx of other hotel developments in the South Bronx should allow for further growth.
