Blog: New condo building looks to 'Make the Bronx Great Again'

THE BRONX -

A condominium building promising to "Make the Bronx Great Again" is coming to the Mott Haven section of the borough, according to the blog Welcome2TheBronx.

The blog caught the sign earlier this week, hanging on the building at 225 East 138th St., which is still under construction.

Known as The Joinery Condominiums, its website says it's planned to stand at seven stories and consist of 47 residential units. Amenities are to include a fitness center, yoga, bicycle and storage rooms, as well as a rooftop terrace.

Welcome2TheBronx states that there are two currently available one-bedroom units -- one priced around $373,000 and the other going for more than $430,000. Some residents say they feel like those home prices are not a good fit for the community.

"That's not for the Bronx," one person said.

News 12 reached out to the condo company for comment but did not immediately hear back.
