A new set of renderings have emerged for the massive project that’s set to replace the Spofford Juvenile Detention Center, in Hunts Point, in the Bronx. 6sqft first reported on the renderings, which have appeared on developer Gilbane Development Company’s website.

The non-residential portion of this five-building development will be occupied by several local businesses like Il Forno Bakery, Soul Snacks, Bascom Catering, Mass Ideation, Hunts Point Brewing Company, and Lightbox NY film studio, many of which can now be seen in these new renderings.

The first phase of this $300 million development will wrap up in 2021, followed by the second phase in 2022, and the final phase in 2024.
