Originated by Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz Jr in 2017, and after years of delays around COVID and other factors, the now 87-million-dollar reconstruction project commenced in December 2022, creating a large number of construction jobs for several years, and then a considerable number of permanent jobs when the remodeled facility opens.
