Public hearing held on Kingsbridge Armory plans

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. held a public hearing Monday night at Lehman College to allow hundreds of residents to weigh in on redevelopment

THE BRONX - Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. held a public hearing Monday night at Lehman College to allow hundreds of residents to weigh in on redevelopment plans for the Kingsbridge Armory.

Neighbors say the project, which plans to turn the armory into a shopping center, could take away business from local shops. Officials estimate there are 45 markets in the immediate area.

The Kingsbridge Armory Redevelopment Alliance pressed the developer to sign a community benefits agreement, which would ensure that workers earn at least $10 an hour in armory stores and youth centers will be included in the plans.
