Submission Deadline: 6/1/18
The New York City Housing Authority and the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) invite developers to submit proposals for the development of mixed-income housing at La Guardia Houses. The RFP is the outcome of extensive resident and community stakeholder engagement as part of NYCHA’s NextGen Neighborhoods program, which will generate revenue to be reinvested back into the development sites and across NYCHA’s portfolio by leveraging a 50-50 split of market-rate and affordable housing units.
The La Guardia Houses RFP is informed by a significant planning and engagement process with NYCHA residents that began in April 2017 and that will continue through developer selection, pre-development, construction and leasing. The project described throughout this RFP reflects the community needs and neighborhood goals NYCHA heard repeatedly in community outreach and canvassing, community visioning workshops, and NYCHA resident engagement meetings. The recommendations identified through this engagement process are captured in the Community Visioning document.
The RFP development site is located on the La Guardia Houses NYCHA campus in Manhattan Community District 3. The development site is approximately 18,000 square feet and bounded by Madison Street, the NYCHA campus and the Little Flower Playground.
