If you own an industrial building and need funding to renovate and reactivate it, then this RFP is for you.
New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”), on behalf of the City of New York (the “City”), is seeking proposals from qualified individuals, organizations or companies (“Respondents”) to renovate and reactivate, via subdivision, privately-held vacant industrial building/space(s) in New York City that face challenges leasing to modern manufacturers and industrial companies. NYCEDC, in cooperation with the Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”), intends to disburse up to $8 million from the City Council Small Manufacturing Investment Fund (the “Industrial Fund”) to incentivize one or more property owners and developers to make capital improvements related to the subdivision and modernization of their industrial spaces. Both not-for-profit and for-profit Respondents are encouraged to submit proposals.
The primary programmatic goal for the use of the funds is the subdivision of large floor plates tailored to the space needs of smaller industrial businesses throughout New York City as described above. Secondary programmatic goals for the Industrial Fund include, but are not limited to:
In addition to the Industrial Fund, the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has allocated up to $3,000,000 to fund eligible, cost-effective green infrastructure projects that are proposed for sites selected by NYCEDC for industrial modernization and subdivision. DEP funds will be awarded to those selected Respondents who propose green infrastructure, or stormwater source controls, to be incorporated into their capital improvement plans. Those Respondents that would like to be considered for the DEP funds must submit additional materials as described in the RFP.
NYCEDC plans to select a Respondent on the basis of factors stated in the RFP which include, but are not limited to: respondent team qualifications, the compatibility of the proposed project to City goals, the level of respondent investment, and the financial feasibility of the project.
