“FORDHAM HEIGHTS -
A vacant lot in Fordham that has been called an eyesore will soon be undergoing a major makeover.
An eight-story building will soon occupy the lot at 4697 Third Ave., offering 53 affordable, multihousing units.
Councilman Ritchie Torres secured the $32.6 million investment, which will be developed by Bronx-Pro. It will be a mixed-use development containing nearly 9,500 square feet of ground floor retail.”
