Bronx Metro-North Station Area Study - Station-Area Planning Moves Forward
Station-Area Planning Moves Forward
Mayor Eric Adam’s Administration is committed to pursuing the Bronx Metro-North Station Area planning, City Planning Chair Dan Garodnick confirmed at a recent speaking event. As noted in a Politico article, “There's 23,000-plus jobs within a stone's throw of this new Metro-North station,” he said of the planned Morris Park station, noting the presence of Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine. “And this is an opportunity for us to help connect that opportunity with existing jobs, promote growth and to do this in a way that really makes sense.”
The Department of City Planning, in partnership with the Department of Transportation and the NYC Economic Development Corporation, released the draft plan for the Bronx Metro-North Station Area Study in December 2021 after more than three years of engagement and planning.
What’s next? MTA Metro North is working to break ground on the stations and track work in 2022 and start service in 2027. To stay in step with the MTA and ensure the city is ready for the new service, DCP and sister agencies aim to finalize the station-area plans and begin implementation in 2022.
