This March, YIMBY covered the approval of the Spofford Juvenile Detention Center by the NYC Council Committee on Land Use. Now, permits have been filed for a fourteen-story mixed-use building at 720 Tiffany Street in Hunts Point, The Bronx. The new development, named ‘The Peninsula,’ will be six blocks from the Longwood Avenue subway station, serviced by the 6 trains. Six blocks further is the Prospect Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The NYC Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is leading the transformation.

    Abatement & Demolition have started onsite. Sound Barriers are being utilized along Tiffany Street as well.

    A good reason not to live in New York City or any of the boroughs

    • NYC has tax incentives for affordable housing, but developers aren’t required to include it. A lot of the developments on YIMBY don’t. So you have your choice.

        Where are your comas. How about to read your crap. Affordable housing is included in this project, and if you don’t like to live in NY, then go to Florida!!! Maybe you stop whining about “hard life” when you will be waiting for local buses there for 30 min to 1 hour with no seat on the bus stop!!! Or going to California, next to bum living next to your building lobby or front yard, and enjoy brownish tarned grass instead of green and concrete covered dried up rivers!!!

    • Affordable housing only means that there are units set aside for those making a certain percentage of the metropolitan area median income. Unit household income requirements vary widely.

  4. omg, now the developers are moving into hunts point?
