Plans have been filed for a six-story, 130 room hotel at Bay Plaza including a swimming pool according to records at Department of Buildings.
The area has seen major commercial development in recent years with the addition of The Mall at Bay Plaza which was the first indoor mall in NYC in 40 years when it opened in four years ago.
This development is yet another hotel coming to The Bronx adding to the existing portfolio of ever-expanding lodging options in a borough where there were none for decades save a few rinky dink, hot sheet motels or bed and breakfast spots.
The location of this planned hotel is perfect for those traveling along I-95 needing a stop to rest before continuing on their trips or lodging for relatives visiting loved ones right here in The Bronx.
We’re still waiting for renderings from Prestige Properties and Development who owns the properties and once we get that we’ll share them with you.
That being said, we’d still like to hear from area residents and their thoughts of another hotel coming to the Co-op City / Baychester area.
