The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), is releasing this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to establish a group of Qualified Applicants that HPD designates as qualified to apply for a Request for Proposals (RFP) anticipated to be released in the second half of 2021. Only Qualified Applicants will be invited to respond to an RFP to develop a high-quality, sustainable, mixed-used affordable housing development with youth services that respects the unique history of the subject site in the Flatbush neighborhood in Brooklyn Community District 14.
The subject site is an archaeologically sensitive parcel located at 2274-2286 Church Avenue (Block 5103, Lot 58) that formerly housed Public School 90 and is currently vacant. Because of the historical and archaeological significance of the Site, local elected officials have convened a community-based task force to advise on the proper handling and memorialization of additional artifacts or human remains, if discovered during future construction, and the future development program, including ideas for the youth community space, affordable housing and design.
In keeping with the City’s new equitable ownership requirement, Qualified Applicants must include an M/WBE or non-profit that will hold at least 25% of the managing ownership interest in the project. Responses to the RFQ will be evaluated based on the Qualified Applicants’ development, environmental and community engagement experience as well as their project vision.
All proposals are due no later than 4:00pm on March 5, 2021. Detailed instructions are provided in the RFQ.
Inquiries regarding the RFQ should be directed to email@example.com.
