☞ READ: Bakeries Proceeding Under La Marqueta
Curbed just reported that the proposed shared bakery facilities under East Harlem's La Marqueta are still happening: LINK. Right now, this is the EDC plan to revitalize the majority empty stalls in the only building that is up and running along the Park Avenue tracks at 115th Street. There are few vendors up front in this space but the back end apparently is empty. This plan may be contradictory to the new La Marqueta Mile proposal since the bakeries are only for production and will interrupt the continuous, open air retail row that has been recently proposed for the length of 111th to 133rd Street: LINK. We reported on the bakery facility currently established on the eastside of La Marqueta this week and this is separate from the EDC plan to revive the tracks. The city's Economic Development Corporation basically owns La Marqueta so they will have the final say in the matter.
