City Seeks Industrial Development for Zerega Site

The city's Economic Development Corporation (EDC) has issued a request for proposals for an approximately 100,000-square-foot site in the Castle Hill section of the Bronx. The EDC, which also managed the Gateway Mall project and is currently shephereding the Kingsbridge Armory project, is looking for a developer to acquire and redevelop the site for industrial uses.

The site is made up of two city-owned lots at 535-537 Zerega Avenue, and is currently being used as a community garden, which they say will be relocated.

According to EDC President Seth W. Pinksy, the request is intended to find industrial users that would maximize the potential of the property and create quality industrial jobs for the community.

The EDC says it will use a variety of criteria to evaluate potential proposals, including economic impact on the city’s economy, land use and design, financial feasibility and relationship to the surrounding community. In addition, each proposal must also submit a Green Building Plan identifying the project’s sustainable-design goals.

  1. It be nice if we too can get a mall, instead of having to go crosstown,miles away and spend extra on cab fare for those who dont drive. People are always complaining about parking, give me a break, stop whining. Think about the consumer and all the people out of work.
