Bronx Point is a waterfront landscape surrounding a mixed use and affordable housing development on the Harlem River and an extension of Mill Pond Park, a project previously completed by Marvel. This project substantially expands Mill Pond Park and creates a new publicly-accessible open space along the Harlem River waterfront and around a new affordable housing building with retail and community facility programming at the base. The open space includes a new waterfront promenade that integrates flood mitigation measures, a children's play area and a plaza at Exterior Street that will serve as a gateway and further connect the park to the surrounding neighborhood.

The activities in the open space and the building program have been carefully curated to work together and enhance one another. Areas will be provided for community activities and events.
The projects seeks to reconnect the waterfront to the neighborhood and to create a much needed active space that everyone can enjoy.
