    It Takes a Village to Interest Us in the South Bronx

    August 13, 2010, by Sara



    That would be Boricua Village, a massive project that has just opened the doors of its first completed building, the 400-unit Northrose (above). While residents trickle in, work's ongoing on a few more buildings and gardens, blog Welcome to Melrose observes. The megaproject (did we mention it's huge?) also includes some still-empty retail space and the new 120,000-square-foot campus of Boricua College. In a few years, students will be able to shop at The Crossings, a $35 million shopping center that's rumored be luring chain retailers like Old Navy to the neighborhood. No word on whether the amenities, which include a playground, screening room, and game room, are finished, but if not, there's always watching the rest of the complex go up.

    Nice. Enjoying Open House NY I see.

    The Bronx alone probably has more highrises than any city in the country outside of Manhattan and Chicago. Unfortunately too many of them are the anti-urban public housing type. Wish Via Verde was the standard for all affordable housing.

    Nice, you can see the Tracy Towers all the way in the back center off to the left. It's been a few years since I've been over that way, have they done anything with the old courthouse?
