another large scale project in the Bronx, this time attached to the Hip Hop museum which has been in the works for some time.

L+M to build hip-hop museum, giant affordable housing complex in South Bronx

Bronx Point will move forward in two phases, according to the city. Phase one, with an anticipated completion date of 2022, will include about 600 units of affordable housing for extremely low income to moderate income tenants, the hip-hop museum and the food hall. It will also include the construction of a waterfront esplanade that will connect to and expand Mill Pond Park, an outdoor performance space, a public plaza along Exterior Street and space for the community service provider BronxWorks. Phase two will consist of the remaining residential units, along with additional commercial and community space.

The Hip-Hop Hall of Fame Museum is set to compete with the up-and-coming Universal Hip-Hop Museum project scheduled to be completed in 2022. Located in the forthcoming Bronx Point mixed-use development along the Bronx's Harlem River waterfront, the venue will break ground in 2019 and will feature similar functions to its rival facility in Harlem, but on a smaller scale at 60,000 square feet.

the first phase will be located at 575 Exterior Street and contain 545 affordable and low-income units.

The proposed 260-foot tall development will yield 584,876 square feet, with 424,075 square feet designated for residential space, 72,571 square feet for commercial space, and 60,044 for community facilities. It will have 542 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 782 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have three mezzanines and a rooftop.

Navid Maqami of S9 Architecture is responsible for the design.

Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
