The Bronx has been making recent headlines, with plans for massive massive market-rate and affordable developments moving forward across several of the borough’s neighborhoods. Alongside the residential boom, the borough is now seeing sprinklings of commercial infill, and today YIMBY has the reveal for an office project that is set to rise at 775 East Tremont Avenue, in Tremont.
An anonymous Chelsea-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 89,078-square-foot commercial-warehouse at 1302 Edward L.
