Empire State Development (ESD) has released a request for expression of interest (RFEI) for the 12.8-acre development site at 400 East 132nd Street, in the South Bronx’s Mott Haven section. The state is seeking to lease or sell the property, which is currently used as a transfer station for trains and trucks, to a development team that’s willing to deck over the station and build a mixed-use project, Crain’s reported. The property, zoned for manufacturing, is an “ESD General Project Plan,” which means the state, through its own approval process, is able to override local zoning regulations. Some percentage of affordable housing is likely envisioned by ESD. The site is owned by the state’s Department of Transportation. Responses are due by February 2, 2017.

  1. Hello..YIMBY..a capable development in my thinking, put the plan on the ground with 12.8-acre.

  2. Seems like a nice piece of land to work with. The trains and trucks are already there in business. Hopefully it would not increase asthma in a mixed used environment.
