Melrose continues to rise from the ashes of the 70's and 80's as construction is as active as ever. With 6 developments under various stages of construction and 3 more developments for the very near future, Melrose is definitely experiencing a construction boom like no other in the the Bronx and perhaps the rest of New York City. Stay tuned for more information on these developments over the coming days as we bring you the latest on each site.

Passing by Boricua Village the other day, I noticed that there was work going on at retail space of the corner building of Boricua Village at 163rd and 3rd. One quick glance at the building permits showed that Duane Reade was occupying the entire corner. One thing we don't have a shortage of in Melrose, other than banks which we have plenty of, are pharmacies. They can be found in Melrose at least every 4 or 5 blocks so you're never far from one and judging by the size of this new addition to the neighborhood it seems to be a huge one.
Congratulations to Duane Reade on recognizing a need where 700 units are slowly being filled. Let's see who else opens shop here over the next few months.
