Young Woo wants to transform the Bronx’s Kingsbridge Armory into a concert and sports venue with a movie theater, a creative market and a large anchor store, according to the New York Daily News. Woo’s Youngwoo & Associates was one of several developers to submit a plan for the armory to the city in March.

Unlike Related, which wanted to build a shopping mall in the armory, Woo’ plan calls for a 76,000-square-foot piazza on the main floor that would host sporting events and concerts and a weekend market with temporary stores run by Urban Space Management, the firm behind the popular DeKalb Market in Brooklyn.

“We don’t want a flea market with people selling tube socks made in China,” Woo said. “This would be made in the Bronx.”

The main floor would also feature a 45,000-square-foot anchor store, above which a mezzanine section would feature a six-screen movie theater and a food court with local vendors. Finally, the ground floor would contain another anchor and shared office space, while the lower floor would have community space, a Crunch fitness center and 250 parking spots. The plan would not require public subsidies. [NYDN]
