New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and Covenant House (CH) are seeking a developer/s to redevelop the majority of a Manhattan block with approximately 780,000 ZSF located in Hell’s Kitchen. Through this initiative, the Developer will construct a mixed-use development that addresses the City’s goal of creating economically diverse neighborhoods, supports CH’s operations through construction of a new, state-of-the art facility, and introduces a pedestrian friendly streetscape that reconnects the block to the surrounding urban fabric.

NYCEDC and CH plan to select a developer on the basis of factors stated in the RFP which include, but are not limited to: completeness and quality of overall response, program and design, financial and schedule feasibility, hiring and workforce programs, respondent qualifications and experience, and economic impact.

Very nice. While existing surrounds are terrible and the access ramps to the PA & the Tunnel make for a miserable pedestrian experience, the amount of new dev coming in the near future will hopefully propel some kind of action to remedy this issue.

hmm.

Covenant House filed plans for a 12-story building at 460 West 41st Street on Tuesday with the Department of Buildings. The project would span about 53,000 square feet and replace a smaller eight-story youth homeless shelter.

The nonprofit has owned the property since 1984, according to property records. Earlier this year, it went under contract to sell part of the site to the Gotham Organization for $78 million, a sale that should close before the end of 2021. Gotham is planning a mixed-use, mixed-income property for the site but agreed to first build Covenant a new facility.
