Located near the heart of the Hunts Point residential community, The Peninsula is an exciting transformation of the former Spofford Youth House into a vibrant, mixed-use campus.
The development proposal creates a nexus of creativity, entrepreneurship, and wellness.
A community centerpiece where an artisanal food hub, health and wellness center, fresh grocer, new film production studio, affordable housing for the Hunts Point neighborhood, and a live-work community for the South Bronx tech and creative sectors, are seamlessly integrated and co-located onto the 4.75 acre site.
Overall, the proposed development plan includes 6 distinct buildings containing 740 residential units, 76,161 SF of commercial space including retail and community facility uses, 52,698 SF of light industrial space including food manufacturing and media production uses, and a parking deck that can accommodate 297 vehicles.
