The Bronx Overall Economic Development Corp. today has asked developers for proposals to build a hotel and conference center on the site of one of Yankee Stadium’s parking garages, NBC New York reported. The site is at River Avenue and 153rd Street, bordering the park where the old Yankee Stadium stood. The plan would involve condominiums, shops and a high-end penthouse restaurant. Borough President Ruben Diaz said developers and hotel operators have expressed interest in such a hotel for years. Chuck Lesnick, vice president of Bronx Parking Development, the agency that manages the stadium garages, said the hotel could attract baseball teams and tourists. [NBC]
