Small-scale development is slowly returning to Wakefield and Williamsbridge, two northern Bronx neighborhoods lined with one- and two-family homes where pockets of new construction grew in the early to mid-2000s. The city downzoned Wakefield in 2007 and Williamsbridge in 2011, discouraging new construction in two of the city’s most affordable places to buy a home. Despite that, we’ve noticed a growing number of little buildings planned in the areas just beyond Bronx Park, . Today, a new building application was filed for a four-story, eight-unit building at 626 East 223rd Street, between Carpenter Avenue and White Plains Road in Wakefield.
