Rezoning proposals filed by Blondell Equities have revealed a prospective new 9-story mixed-use building in the Westchester Square neighborhood of The Bronx. The proposed building at 1340 Blondell Avenue would contain rental apartments, retail space, and a community medical facility.

If approved, zoning amendments could spur a flurry of mixed-use residential developments in neighboring tax lots not currently owned by Blondell Equities.
