The developers of the Time Warner Center are heading north to the Bronx to develop the Bronx Terminal Market. The Related Companies have bought the dilapidated markets for a reported $40 million. At one point, the Bronx Terminal Market was the country's largest Hispanic wholesale market (according to the Times, there were over 100 tenants and 1000 employees once); now there are only 30 vegetable and fruit sellers. While the Bronx Borough President is happy, some of the current tenants are dubious. Hopefully the market will be able to retain its presence with area businesses and not become too over-priced with upgrades - although Gothamist could see some city chefs opening up a casual Bronx cafes in the market.
