The Bronx is booming, and as part of its Centennial Celebration, the Bronx Chamber of Commerce has nominated NYJTL’s Cary Leeds Center for Tennis & Learning to receive its inaugural Building Award in the Sports & Entertainment category.

This year, the Bronx Chamber of Commerce is recognizing the best projects and the teams that designed and built them. NYJTL’s winning project team was honored at a reception at the Marina del Rey, published on the Bronx Chamber Web site and in local publications, and has earned the bragging rights of being the best of the Bronx projects!

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. is very excited about the beautiful design of the facility, as well as the immense benefits it will bring to the community.

“The impact that the NYJTL Cary Leeds Center for Tennis & Learning will have on Crotona Park and the Bronx, bringing tennis and a wonderful educational center for the community, makes it an easy choice for the ‘First Bronx Building Award,’” said Diaz Jr. “Its architects were able to masterfully design the building to blend seamlessly with the contours of Crotona Park, while creating a functional facility for students to learn.”
