HPD and NYCHA Development Request for Proposals


The NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) and the NYC Housing Authority (NYCHA) invite qualified, not-for-profit and for-profit developers to submit proposals for development of an affordable rental housing development called University/Macombs Apartments in the Morris Heights area of the Bronx. University/ Macombs Apartments will be the first project to be carried out under a recently initiated collaboration between HPD and NYCHA for the development of affordable rental housing in New York City. It is located in a neighborhood that includes apartment buildings and small homes, many of which have been rehabilitated in recent years, and active commercial enterprises. For both reasons, this Development presents an unusually attractive opportunity for experienced developers/managers of affordable rental housing. This Development will be developed on property currently owned by NYCHA. The property consists of four vacant multifamily buildings containing a total of 180 dwelling units as well as a vacant lot with the capacity for up to an additional 30 dwelling units. This property will be conveyed by NYCHA to the selected developer ("Developer") for a nominal sum. The Developer will rehabilitate the existing buildings, construct a new residential building on the vacant lot, and own and manage the completed Development.

On Wednesday, September 3, 2003, commencing at 10:00 AM, the vacant buildings located at 1611, 1615 University Avenue, 1669-1675 University Avenue and 1647-1655 Macombs Road will be opened for inspection by developers interested in responding to the RFP. Click here for more information.
