Mapping the Crucial Developments That Will Reshape the Bronx – Development Watch – Curbed NY

Welcome2TheBronx teamed up with Curbed to help identify several major projects in The Bronx that are considered to be game changers in our borough.

These are crucial to keep an eye on and their impact on surrounding areas as threats of gentrification continues to creep in.  Places like the Bronx Documentary Center have been pivotal in keeping the conversation going on gentrification and what residents can do to come up with solutions as not to be pushed out and they have also documented the changes in our neighborhoods.

Here’s what Curbed had to say:

“For decades, the Bronx has been ignored in the larger conversation of a changing New York City. But as big developers like Chetrit Group and Greystone turn their eyes north, and Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. announces his lofty desires for creating a Brooklyn Bridge Park-style public space along the Harlem River, it seems like momentum is starting to build around the fledgling borough. “The South Bronx has experienced an unprecedented amount of capital flowing in the past years over some major developments,” Ed García Conde of Welcome2theBronx tells Curbed, referencing progressive mega developments like La Central and Via Verde. Also in the southern part of the borough, landmarked buildings like the Kingsbridge Armory and Bronx Borough Courthouse are being appropriated for cultural events space. Here’s a look at a few of the big things that will spearhead more change in the Bronx.
