NYCEDC today announced a Request for Proposals for a feasibility study on development at Sunnyside Yards. Future development, if found feasible, could yield opportunities for new affordable homes, schools, open space and community facilities for the surrounding neighborhood and improve public transportation and infrastructure, while preserving the vital operations of rail facilities in the yards.
NYCEDC seeks proposals from qualified developers for the purchase or lease and redevelopment of an approximately seven acre parcel in Springfield Gardens, Queens owned by the City of New York and located near JFK International Airport. NYCEDC seeks users and/or developers to redevelop the site for industrial and/or commercial use. Respondents have the opportunity to create a modern campus plan that supports job-intensive uses and attracts established and growing businesses.
NYCEDC is seeking up to six design consultants or consultant teams to provide design services for green infrastructure in the HP07-02, HP07-03, HP04-04 and HP02-02 combined sewer overflow (CSO) Tributary areas to the Bronx River in the Bronx and 26W-004 and 26W-005 CSO Tributary areas to Jamaica Bay in Brooklyn. The purpose of this project is to support NYCDEP Green Infrastructure Program and to deliver green infrastructure capital projects. These capital projects, primarily Right of Way Bioswales (ROWB), are to be implemented in target areas in order to comply with state and federal regulations regarding water quality attainment and mitigation of CSOs, and in connection with replacement projects that will defer consent order capital obligations of “grey” infrastructure projects that would otherwise cost several hundred million dollars.
