Initial Phase of Fordham Landing Megaproject to Break Ground in September
Developer Dynamic Star recently revealed new details about the initial phase of what has been described as “one of the most ambitious projects planned for the Bronx in recent history.” Plans had been filed in 2021 for a 17-story, 602-unit residential development that will now host 505-units of which 153-units will be designated for affordable housing. Awarded a tax break under the now-expired 421-a incentive, but to receive it, construction of the building to rise at 320 West Fordham Road must be completed by 2026. A second 23-story, 350,000-square-foot community facility known as 1 Fordham Landing will also be constructed along the Harlem River primarily for medical and educational tenants. A new station entrance and pedestrian bridge to the Metro-North University Heights station, a public waterfront esplanade, and a landscaped outdoor roof are also planned.
