THE BRONX - The topic of what will inhabit the Kingsbridge Armory was front and center for Bronx residents tonight at Saint Nicholas of Tolentine.

Developers Youngwoo and Associates explained their vision for the armory as a mixed-use facility with local vendors, sports fields, large community spaces and a movie theater. The northwest Bronx group led the meeting and wrote their mission statements on a board which included points about living wage jobs and a new high school, among others.

The meeting was not attended by the Kingsbridge National Ice Center developers, who want to turn the armory into a state-of-the-art hockey facility.
