Number of units
Bronx Point represents a transformative mixed-use development of approximately 530,000 SF that will bring affordable housing, educational community facilities, dynamic retail uses, and engaging new open space along the Harlem River waterfront in the South Bronx. It includes 542 units of permanently affordable housing, an educational space for youth operated by Bronx Works, and retail opportunities. The Universal Hip Hop Museum will be a new cultural destination that celebrates the global Hip Hop culture.
Surrounding the building are exciting high-quality open spaces for the community, including a new playground adjacent to the existing Mill Pond Park, an esplanade along the Harlem River shoreline with a landscaped public walkway and seating areas, and a plaza on Exterior Street extending along a newly activated streetscape. Bronx Point advances the City and community’s long-standing goal of increasing parkland in the South Bronx while catalyzing the rebirth of the borough’s burgeoning Harlem River waterfront.
Bronx Point is the first affordable housing project to be verified through the national WEDG standard, the gold standard for waterfront resilience and risk reduction. Read more about Bronx Point’s WEDG verification here.
