Young Woo & Associates have filed plans to begin the redevelopment of the Bronx General Post Office, and if they go through, it looks like the building will soon be a catchall commercial space. The redesigned interior of the 80-year-old building will have office space, retail, restaurants, and a rooftop terrace, according to Welcome2theBronx and YIMBY.
The filings note that 7,500 square feet will be added to the landmarked 143,000-square-foot building. Restaurants, retail, and area retained by the Post Officethe landmarked lobbywill occupy the building's first floor, cellar, and basement, with offices on the second through fourth floors, and all topped off by a rooftop restaurant and lounge. The existing parking structure will also be rehabbed and have 54 spaces. While it all sounds well and good, the plans have yet to be approved by the Department of Buildings.
