CURRENT PROJECTS
SOUTH BRONX GREENWAY
Hunts Point Avenue
Hunts Point Avenue
1 of 4
In November 2006, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg unveiled the South Bronx Greenway Masterplan. The South Bronx Greenway aims to create a sustainable community while promoting a competitive business environment in the Hunts Point peninsula.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS
  • Borough: Bronx
  • 1.5 miles of new waterfront greenway
  • 8.5 miles of new green streets
  • Nearly 12 acres of new waterfront open space

The Greenway Initiative is on one of the primary goals of a comprehensive planning process for the South Bronx and Hunts Point that began with the Hunts Point Vision Plan.  This plan, issued by the Mayor in March 2005, was created in cooperation with the community, elected officials and local businesses.

When complete, the South Bronx Greenway will encompass 1.5 miles of new waterfront greenway, 8.5 miles of new green streets, and nearly 12 acres of new waterfront open space throughout Hunts Point and Port Morris. All together, the Greenway will not only create open space, bike paths and new links to the waterfront, but also enhance transportation safety, improve air quality, and produce opportunities for economic development.

Short-Term Projects Are Underway
Four short-term projects currently in development include:
  • Lafayette Avenue
  • Hunts Point Avenue
  • Food Center Drive
  • Hunts Point Landing
