NYCEDC seeks proposals that incorporate a diverse mix of uses, including health-focused programming, retail, commercial and community facilities (particularly medical and wellness facilities); and housing for a range of incomes, ages and ability levels. As a “Healthy Community,” the Site’s redevelopment should promote exercise, access to nature, social engagement, and good nutrition for its residents and visitors. Given its size and location, the Site represents a unique opportunity to develop a groundbreaking concept that will be the first of its kind in the New York City and among the first of its kind in the nation.
This RFEI is not intended as a formal offering for the disposition of the Site. NYCEDC may elect to release a targeted request for proposals to selected respondents of this RFEI and, potentially, other parties at a later time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, NYCEDC reserves the right to select a developer for a portion of or the entire Site, on the basis of responses to this RFEI without any further process. Therefore, NYCEDC strongly encourages all parties interested in redeveloping all or portion(s) of the Site to submit proposals in response to this RFEI.
