another large scale project in the Bronx, this time attached to the Hip Hop museum which has been in the works for some time.
Bronx Point will move forward in two phases, according to the city. Phase one, with an anticipated completion date of 2022, will include about 600 units of affordable housing for extremely low income to moderate income tenants, the hip-hop museum and the food hall. It will also include the construction of a waterfront esplanade that will connect to and expand Mill Pond Park, an outdoor performance space, a public plaza along Exterior Street and space for the community service provider BronxWorks. Phase two will consist of the remaining residential units, along with additional commercial and community space.
