Fordham Plaza is set to undergo an overhaul — complete with a cafe and markets…
Renovations at the plaza, located by Fordham University, will include planters with wooden seating that are landscaped with trees and other greenery, as well as a new bus loop to improve traffic that will include shelters and seating for riders.
Overall, pedestrian space will increase by 25 percent at the new plaza.
A $10 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation will partially fund the project, which is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2015.
(All emphasis mine.)
This is EXCELLENT news; it’s great to see continued investment in The Bronx! I can’t wait to see the new Fordham Plaza! I hope this project doesn’t fall victim to the construction delays that seem to plague smaller-scale Bronx projects like this one.
