The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) invites developers to submit proposals to develop high-quality and sustainable affordable housing developments on two City-owned sites in Brooklyn Community District 3, located in Bedford-Stuyvesant. The development of these sites supports the goals outlined in the Bedford-Stuyvesant Housing Plan, including among others, creating new affordable rental and homeownership opportunities, and promoting safe and healthy housing.
Site 1 is located on Fulton Street just east of Howard Avenue. The Site consists of Brooklyn Block 1549, Lots 4-7, and is approximately 8,000 square feet in size.
Site 2 is also located on Fulton Street, at the southwestern corner on Saratoga Avenue. The Site consists of Brooklyn Block 1549, Lots 18-26 and 28-35, and is approximately 36,000 square feet in size.
Both Sites are located one block east of the Ralph Avenue C Subway station and within a block of amenities such as a USPS Postal Office, grocery stores, pharmacies, the Eagle Academy for Young Men II, and the CAMBA Multi-Service Center.
Applicants may submit to develop one or both Sites included in this RFP.
HPD launched the Bedford-Stuyvesant Housing Initiative in Spring of 2019 to evaluate and improve upon the agency's affordable housing investments in Bedford-Stuyvesant. By working with local community groups and coordinating housing-related city agencies, the initiative is designed to ensure that HPD programs and investments are working towards common objectives for the neighborhood and that housing developed on public land responds to local needs. Through a series of public workshops, community surveys, and stakeholder meetings between March 2019 and January 2020, HPD gathered community priorities and visions for the development of the sites included in the Bedford-Stuyvesant Community Wealth and Wellness RFP.
Input gathered at these workshops and through online questionnaires are summarized in the Bedford-Stuyvesant Housing Plan. The plan is also attached as an addendum to the RFP, and respondents are strongly encouraged to consult this report in developing project proposals.
An online pre-submission conference was held on December 22, 2020. View the presentation material. Questions and answers from the conference will be released in the forthcoming first addendum.
