Work is slated to begin at the Hub in the South Bronx, a set of projects that hopes to revitalize the area’s busy commercial district with a supermarket, college center and redesigned plaza.

The first project, set to kick off as early as this month, is the $40 million, two-building development known as the Triangle Plaza Hub. Triangle Plaza – being developed by Triangle Equities — will bring a branch of the city’s Metropolitan College of New York, a Fine Fare supermarket, and other shops and restaurants to two sites by East 149th Street.

And later in the fall, the city will move to install a $12.7 million seating area complete with trees and a fountain at Roberto Clemente Plaza near the Hub’s intersection, DNAinfo reported. The project will be followed by one to build affordable housing units as well as commercial spaces.

“Right now, we’re living on the verge of change,” Garrett Lucien, an executive at economic development agency SoBRO, told DNAinfo. “This area is set for its boom.” [DNAinfo]Hiten Samtani
