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 sites in Bronx Community District 4, located in Southwestern Bronx. The development of these sites builds on the Jerome Avenue Neighborhood Plan, and other collaborative community planning efforts to improve access to affordable housing opportunities in the area.
Site A is located on the River Avenue and East 168th Street side of the Morrisania Diagnostic and Treatment Center at 1225 Gerard Avenue. The Site is owned by the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation (H+H) and is currently used as a surface parking lot. The Site is adjacent to the elevated 4 subway line along River Avenue, as well as the 167th Street Station. The Site consists of Bronx Block 2489, Lot 60, and is approximately 26,000 square feet in size.
Site B is located at 1640-1642 Anthony Avenue, across from Claremont Park and adjacent to the Labor-Bathgate Child Care Center, operated by the New York City Administration for Children’s Services (ACS). The site consists of Bronx Block 2888, Lots 23 and 25, and is approximately 10,000 square feet in size.
Applicants may submit to develop one or both of the two sites included in this RFP.
In order to gather the community’s input on what residents hope to see on these two sites, HPD hosted a community workshop on October 3, 2019. The purposes of the workshop were to enable meaningful and interactive participation, better understand community priorities, and gather ideas for future development on these sites from those who live and work in the vicinity and have an intimate understanding of neighborhood conditions and needs.
Input gathered at this workshop and through online questionnaires is summarized in the Jerome-Anthony RFP Community Visioning Workshop Report. This report is also attached as an addendum to the RFP, and respondents are encouraged to consult this report when developing their proposals.
A pre-submission conference was held at 2:00pm - 4:00pm on January 17, 2020 at 100 Gold Street, Room 1R, New York, NY 10038.
