NYCEDC seeks proposals from a qualified licensed New York State Real Estate Brokers (the “Broker”) to research, conduct due diligence, and solicit potential industrial tenants for NYCEDC’s site AOU-2, a vacant site in the Hunts Point Food Distribution Center (“Property”).

The Property is located on the northeast corner of Food Center Drive and Halleck Street in the 690-acre Hunts Point Peninsula.  The Property comprises approximately 3.2 acres and is a portion of Block 2778, lot 100 (zoned M3-1) within the Hunts Point Food Distribution Center (“FDC”).  NYCEDC, on behalf of the City of New York, is looking to dispose of the site through a long-term ground lease term to a developer or user. NYCEDC’s intent is that the ground tenant will fund the costs of new development on the site.  NYCEDC is looking for food-related industrial uses that are compatible with, or advance the mission of, the existing tenants in the FDC, which include the NYC Terminal Produce Market, the Hunts Point Cooperative (Meat) Market, the New Fulton Fish Market, as well as commercial tenants such as Baldor, Anheuser Busch, and Dairyland.

NYCEDC plans to select a consultant 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, experience and quality of any subcontractors proposed, demonstrated successful experience in performing services similar to those encompassed in the RFP, and the proposed fee, if applicable.
