Willis Ave. Garden Overhaul; Sales Check at 13 Melrose Street

THE BRONX—The Willis Avenue Community Garden has a whole new look. The Mott Haven space recently underwent a total renovation, which brought a TEN Arquitectos-designed modular casita/performance stage/gathering spot to the community space that also doubles as a crisis center (should the next big storm hit). The garden was also replanted, and raised planting beds were installed as were new entrance gates, a pergola, and a shed. The park officially reopened on Thursday, September 18. [CurbedWire inbox]
