The vacant station on Westchester Ave is about 2500 sq ft and is a historical building designed by the distinguished architect, Cass Gilbert. YMPJ is retaining architects and engineers to study the abandoned station, which has been vacant since 1937.
We are in the process of considering the potential for the re-imagined station – located at the corner of Westchester Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard – to be the focal point of a mixed-use destination for the neighborhood. Restoring the station would build on significant investments along the Bronx River Waterfront, including the Bronx River Greenway, its connected parks, and new and proposed housing developments. Activating the abandoned station would also serve as a critical connection between the vibrant Westchester Avenue and Southern Boulevard commercial corridors.
YMPJ’S work on activating the abandoned train station on Westchester Avenue next to Concrete Plant Park was recognized in the New York Times.
