The Hudson Companies, BRP Companies, ELH-TKC, LLC, Breaking Ground and Comunilife topped out on the second and third buildings of La Central, a $335-million mixed-use, mixed-income project in the South Bronx’s Melrose neighborhood.
The two buildings at 556 and 600 Bergen Ave. will contain 496 affordable residential units, a new 50,000-square-foot YMCA, a television studio for BronxNet, a GrowNYC operated rooftop garden, and ground-floor retail along Westchester Avenue.
“La Central is a transformative project, developed to serve as a resource and destination for the community, in addition to providing hundreds of quality, affordable homes,” said Meredith Marshall, co-founder and managing partner of BRP. “We’re glad to announce we’re a major step closer to completion and look forward to opening these doors to the Bronx.”
The two new buildings represent the project’s second phase and are scheduled for completion in 2020. La Central is expected to be finalized in 2023.
