City officials are looking to rezone about 75 blocks of the Tremont area of the Bronx, hoping to turn vacant lots into more profitable businesses. The Department of City Planning says in a statement that their goal is to "provide opportunities for new residential and commercial development in the 'heart of the Bronx.'" DCP spokeswoman Carol Samol tells NY1 that about 700 housing units are projected to be built in the next 10 years, and that they would impose height limits to preserve the character of the area. Uh oh, sounds like "SoBro" may be spreading!
