La Central, The Bronx’s Massive 992 Unit Development in Melrose, Is Finally Approved by City Council

After almost three years since it was announced, the mega project La Central has moved one step closer to reality as New York City Council approved this development yesterday.

With 992 units planned, a 50,000 square foot YMCA, 10,000 square foot television studio for BronxNet, and also an astronomy lab and observation deck among many other features, La Central is one of the biggest mixed residential and commercial developments coming to The Bronx.

Van Cortlandt Park: The Bronx’s Answer To Central Park

The Bronx is GREEN. We already know that The Bronx is the greenest of the 5 boroughs with roughly 25% of our land as parks and green spaces and home to 3 of the 10 largest city parks (no, Central Park, you are not the largest).

Van Cortlandt Park, tucked away in the Northwestern corner of The Bronx, is New York City’s 3rd largest park. From nature trails, a swimming pool, a lake, America’s first municipal golf course, horse stables and bridle paths, and a 250+ year old mansion, the park packs a lot in 1,146 acres.
