Hudson Companies has achieved a major milestone at La Central, a 1.1-million-square-foot affordable housing development in The Bronx, where a collection of new commercial tenants will soon open shop. Tenants include a community-based café, a sit-down Mexican restaurant, a take-out pizza shop, an organic grocer, and an operator for the 135-space on-site parking garage.
Construction has topped out on two buildings within La Central, a 1.1-million-square-foot development in the South Bronx. Designed in collaboration by MHG Architects, FXCollaborative, and Future Green Studio, the new structures represent the second phase of La Central’s three-phase masterplan.
Permits have been filed for a ten-story affordable housing building at 3401 3rd Avenue, between East 166th Street and East 167th Street in Morrisania, The Bronx. Comunilife, a non-profit organization that provides housing to homeless adults struggling with HIV/AIDS, serious mental and behavioral health issues, and other chronic medical conditions, is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The team behind the La Central Development has closed a deal for financing towards the construction of their massive mixed-use project in the Melrose Community of the South Bronx. This is one of the largest mixed-income projects currently under construction in New York City. Once complete, the project will span 1.1 million square feet, with five buildings and 992 units entirely devoted to affordable housing.
Permits have been filed for a six-story community facility at 2064 Boston Road, in The Bronx’s West Farms neighborhood. The site is close to the Bronx River, and surrounded by green space, which runs through the Bronx Zoo and New York Botanical Garden. The West Farms Square-East Tremont Avenue Subway Station is two blocks away, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains.
