Work started Jan. 13 on the Bronx Music Hall, a 300-seat concert venue built on what was the last vacant, city-owned site in the Melrose Commons Urban Renewal Area.
The 426,000-square-foot Bronx Commons redevelopment will also include 305 affordable apartments, retail space, a landscaped public plaza and places to eat and shop. It will be a hub for small business development, early childhood education, after-school programs, healthcare, nutrition, and most especially music and arts education, according to Nancy Biberman, founder and president of WHEDco, which joined with BFC Partners to develop the site.
The apartments will be affordable to households earning a wide range incomes, from moderate-income families to people exiting the homeless shelter system.
