A new transit-oriented development, consisting of six residential towers that will form a gateway to the Bronx from the north and an iconic sentinel from the south, will take its place on the New York skyline by 2027.

The Wakefield Village master plan envisions 1,208 affordable and market-rate dwelling units of one, two, and three bedrooms in a new “community” that also will include a “neighborhood” elementary school and day care center, a resident meeting house, food market and other convenience retail, and several major urban places woven into the six-acre site plan. Built on underutilized property bounded by MTA rail lines, the site supports transit oriented connectivity with immediate access to the Metro North Wakefield Station, multiple city bus routes, NYC subway system, and the Bronx River Parkway. The three-phase development will provide parking and service access in a two-level site podium. Six residential towers will be erected above the podium. The towers are to have grade level retail and community spaces. Tower massing creates an active skyline, with heights ranging from 12 to 23 stories. Tower designs propose generous use of glazing and a mix of masonry façade types and masonry materials. Rooftop areas will be green, some of which will be used as a tenant amenity.

The site allows views to the Bronx River and the Bronx River Park greenway trail system. A new park at south end of the site will provide green space for resident use and recreation and connection to the Bronx Park greenway environment. Two retail plazas on the podium will provide both public and private gathering spaces.
