Take a Peek at The South Bronx’s First “Luxury” Condo

A few years ago, Welcome2TheBronx broke the story about the first market-rate, new construction condos coming to the South Bronx at 138th Street in Manhattan.

Last year we found out the name of the development was the Joinery and how we found out was in a rather distasteful manner: The developer decided to throw up a banner that said, “Making The Bronx Great Again“.

After we broke that story, the banner quickly came down but that’s all that dropped.

Since then, prices have increased at the development which is something the developers office told us would happen.

The new images are decent, I guess, but doesn’t really look like much luxury in our opinion and they look rather small for the price.

Either way, it’s gentrification in full force.
