Ground Broken for Tremont Renaissance, Major Bronx Mixed-Income Development

The Bronx is booming across all corners, and now in East Tremont, the city has officially broken ground on a major new mixed-income affordable housing development, dubbed Tremont Renaissance, at 4215 Park Avenue. Bound by Webster, East Tremont, and Park avenues, the building will rise on a 60,000-square-foot lot, containing 40,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space and 256 residential units above. Apartments will rent to individuals making between $38,100 and $76,200, and families of three making between $48,960 and $97,920; half of the units will rent to low-income families, while the other half will go to moderate-income tenants. Mastermind Development is behind the project, alongside HPD and HDC, and Joy Construction will be building it.
