Developer, Coney Island Ice Pavilion

Submission Deadline
June 7, 2019 at 4:00 pm

New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking a developer to construct a new iconic attraction along the famed Riegelmann Boardwalk in Coney Island, Brooklyn. NYCEDC is looking for proposals to develop a new state-of-the-art ice-skating venue, open and accessible to the public, and potentially including other uses, such as complimentary sporting facilities, community space, entertainment, retail and dining on a City-owned site. Proposals should also contemplate the demolition of the existing Abe Stark Ice Rink on the site, which lies in the streetbed of the future West 20th Street extension and must be removed in order to enable street buildout and development of the site. 

NYCEDC plans to select a developer on the basis of factors stated in the RFP which include, but are not limited to: the quality of the proposal, experience of key staff identified in the proposal, hiring and workforce program participation, demonstrated successful experience in performing services similar to those encompassed in the RFP, and the proposed financial terms.
