NYS HCR Vital Brooklyn RFP (Sites E-L)

On November 29, NYS Homes and Community Renewal (HCR) released the second phase of its Vital Brooklyn RFPdue February 28th (Sites E, F, G, H & I) and April 30th, 2019 (Site J, K & L). Through this RFP, HCR seeks to develop eight high-quality, sustainable, and mixed-use permanently affordable housing developments in Brooklyn. Affordable housing may include multi-family, senior, and/or supportive housing.

Vital Brooklyn is New York State’s comprehensive community development initiative that addresses chronic social, economic, and health disparities in Central Brooklyn, one of the most underserved areas in the State. To fulfill the state’s commitment to producing healthy, affordable housing in central Brooklyn, HCR is releasing this RFP for the redevelopment of underutilized land on behalf of both One Brooklyn Health System (an integrated system comprised of Interfaith Medical Center, Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center, and Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center) and the Health Science Center at Brooklyn Foundation.

Proposals should strive to develop sites into new mixed-use developments that benefit the surrounding community with affordable housing, community facilities, and public and health and wellness-oriented amenities including open space. Proposals should incorporate health-oriented, sustainable and green building practices, and address the criteria set forth in the community and hospital priorities (listed in the RFP).
