HPD announced the selection of development teams to build approximately 260 units of affordable housing on two City-owned sites in the Clinton/Hell's Kitchen section of Midtown Manhattan. The RFP sought proposals for two mixed-use, affordable housing developments in the heart of New York City, surrounded by a commercial corridor, parks, transit, and cultural institutions.
Site A: Ninth Avenue Site
Located at 806 Ninth Avenue, Site A will be developed through a partnership between Hudson Companies and Housing Works, Inc., a New York City-based nonprofit that provides supportive housing, healthcare, and a range of social services. The development will contain approximately 100 units of affordable and supportive housing for very low and low-income households, with units set aside for the formerly homeless. The building will feature approximately 11,000 square feet of retail space along Ninth Avenue, including a Housing Works thrift shop. The building will include office space for New York City Transit and below grade parking for emergency vehicles.
Site B: Tenth Avenue Site
Located at 705 Tenth Avenue, Site B will be developed by a team led by Douglaston Development and the Actors Fund, a nonprofit that provides housing and other services for all people in performing arts and entertainment. The development will contain approximately 160 affordable units that will serve a range of households, including very low, low, and moderate-income households, with units set aside for formerly homeless households. The ground floor of the new building will have an arts-oriented community space to be operated by Spaceworks, public restroom, and adjacent open space that is being developed by the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation.
A pre-submission conference was held at 10:30am on Monday April 30, 2018 at 125 Worth Street, 2nd Floor auditorium, New York, NY 10013.
