NEW YORK (AP) — Officials in the Bronx are hoping to put a hotel and conference center on the site of one of Yankee Stadium’s parking garages.

Condos, shops and a high-end penthouse restaurant are all part of the plan.

The Bronx Overall Economic Development Corp. on Monday invited developers for proposals.

The site to be developed is at River Avenue and 153rd Street, bordering the park where old Yankee Stadium stood.

Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. said developers and hotel operators have expressed interest in such a hotel for years.

Chuck Lesnick, vice president of the agency that manages the stadium garages, said he hoped visiting baseball teams as well as tourists would be attracted to the hotel.
