Project Description

Mixed-use: community, daycare grocery (Fine Fare Supermarkets). New York City Industrial Development Agency (NYCIDA) today approved assistance for the renovation of a vacant 19,000-square-foot building to house a brand new Fine Fare supermarket at 801 East Gun Hill Road in the Williamsbridge section of the Bronx. The new supermarket will create 80 new jobs and represents a private investment of approximately $4.8 million. The supermarket is expected to break ground this spring and take approximately 12 months to construct. The project will generate nearly $9.4 million in tax revenue for the City over 25 years and is being assisted with a total of approximately $4.5 million in sales and real-estate tax exemptions over 25 years. The assistance was approved under the City’s Food Retail Expansion to Support Health (FRESH) program, which was created to increase access to food in underserved communities by incentivizing the establishment and retention of neighborhood supermarkets. Build NYC Resource Corporation (Build NYC) also held its board of directors meeting today, and voted to approve Manhattan College for approximately $26 million in triple-tax-exempt bonds. The Fine Fare supermarket, to be operated by East Gun Hill Road Food,LLC, will become the fourth Bronx-based supermarket to have received assistance under the FRESH program. In total these supermarkets will have helped to create and retain 330 jobs, and provide nearly 126,000 square feet of new or renovated supermarket space.
