In the neighborhood of Melrose, located at 665-673 Elton Avenue, just off the economically thriving 3rd Avenue, are seven adjoining retail shops managed by Heights Real Estate. A few blocks to the southwest down 3rd Avenue is The Hub
. The Hub
is known for being the ”retail heart of the South Bronx” and is considered to resemble Times Square in the capacity of high-volume traffic and high-density consumerism.
Since the extremely successful opening of the “Hub Retail and Office Center” in 2007, The Hub’s
boundaries now extend as far northeast as 3rd Avenue and 156th Street; ending one block north of our location. 3rd Avenue is lined with retail stores such as GNC, Lids, Athletes Foot, Modells, Payless, Foot Locker, Third Avenue Mini-Mall, Nine West, and Ashley Stuart, amongst many specialty boutiques and trendy stores. This medley of shops yields a high-traffic zone for a range of consumers, day and night.
