Warwick, the owner of the Melrose Hotel which last week announced plans to purchase The Bronx, the restaurant that has anchored the gayborhood for 35 years, released their plans for the real estate today.
“The current plans call for a large and pillar-less ballroom which would be complemented by additional meeting and conference space in a nearby building. The construction of a spa and a swimming pool is also under study,” Warwick said.
Whatever it ends up being, it sounds like it will not be a restaurant — and certainly not The Bronx.
The Bronx occupies a building constructed in the early 20th century. It would presumably be razed to make room for whatever construction the Melrose pursues.
