Sea View Healthy Community RFEI

Submission Deadline
April 28, 2017 at 4:00 pm

Approximately 80 acres of city land is available for a master planned, mixed-use community at the scenic, historic Sea View Hospital site (the “Site”) in New York City. New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”), in partnership with NYC Health & Hospitals and in coordination with the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, is seeking proposals. Located just north of Staten Island’s verdant Greenbelt park system and replete with the dramatic New York Harbor views for which it is named, Sea View Hospital is now mostly vacant and available for redevelopment as “Sea View Healthy Community.” Consistent with the hospital’s legacy as New York City’s historic battlefront against tuberculosis and as the site of significant advances leading to its cure, Sea View Healthy Community aims to facilitate healthy living and wellbeing among its residents and visitors.

NYCEDC seeks proposals that incorporate a diverse mix of uses, including health-focused programming, retail, commercial, and community facilities (particularly medical and wellness facilities); and housing for a range of incomes, ages, and ability levels. As a “Healthy Community,” the Site’s redevelopment should promote exercise, access to nature, social engagement, and good nutrition for its residents and visitors. Given its size and location, the Site represents a unique opportunity to develop a groundbreaking concept that will be the first of its kind in the New York City and among the first of its kind in the nation.

This RFEI is not intended as a formal offering for the disposition of the Site. NYCEDC may elect to release a targeted request for proposals to selected respondents of this RFEI and, potentially, other parties at a later time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, NYCEDC reserves the right to select a developer for a portion of or the entire Site, on the basis of responses to this RFEI without any further process. Therefore, NYCEDC strongly encourages all parties interested in redeveloping all or portion(s) of the Site to submit proposals in response to this RFEI.
