Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique is beneficial to populations experiencing trauma, crisis, PTSD and to at-risk populations including incarcerated juveniles and adults, women and children survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking, among others. Transcendental Meditation has been scientifically proven to reduce toxic stress, trauma, and anxiety, negative behavior and depression, while also improving health and cognitive functioning. Moreover, the immediate and significant results are pervasive and can be used throughout life, improving physical and psychological health.

People of any background or learning ability can learn how to use TM (usually practiced twice a day for 20 minutes, sitting comfortably with the eyes closed), because it is uniformly taught with little to no concentration. TM addresses the effects of trauma, stress and lack of sleep while improving focus, creativity, memory and learning ability.

Dynamic Project at Beast 21st St. Downtown Far Rockaway

March 14, 2017- Be a part of Mayor de Blasio’s Housing New York affordable housing plan through a new development opportunity located in Downtown Far Rockaway, Queens. New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) are seeking proposals for the long-term ground lease and development of an approximately 42,500-square-foot-site (the Site) in the center of Downtown Far Rockaway. The highly visible Site is located less than a block from the A train, adjacent to a planned public plaza, and less than a mile from the beach. It is also above the 100-year and 500-year flood plains.

The RFP presents an exciting opportunity to create a mixed-use development as one of the first steps in the comprehensive revitalization of Downtown Far Rockaway. You’ll be creating a dynamic project that activates the commercial heart of the district; providing the community with needed housing, services and amenities; and contributing to the evolution of the neighborhood.

Public investments totaling $90 million are already underway in Downtown Far Rockaway and, in February 2016, Mayor de Blasio announced the allocation of an additional $91 million to act on the vision shared by the community and laid out by the Downtown Far Rockaway Working Group. This represents a total commitment of more than $180 million to the neighborhood.

As one of many strategies in the Downtown Far Rockaway Roadmap For Action, NYCEDC is currently conducting the required environmental review and preparing an application for the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure to rezone the neighborhood, including the Site, to allow for a wider range of uses, strengthening existing commercial corridors and unlocking the potential for more vibrant, mixed-use development throughout the area. For further details, visit http://www.edc.nyc/FarRockaway.  This project has M/WBE participation goals, and all respondents will be required to submit a M/WBE Narrative Form with their response.

Groundbreaking Redevelopment: Sea View Healthy Community

March 31, 2017- Approximately 80 acres of city land is available for a master planned, mixed-use community at a 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.

It is the policy of NYCEDC to comply with all federal, state, and City laws and regulations which prohibit unlawful discrimination because of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, marital status and other protected category and to take affirmative action in working with contracting parties to ensure certified Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs) share in the economic opportunities generated by NYCEDC’s projects and initiatives. This project has M/W/DBE participation goals, and all respondents will be required to submit an M/W/DBE Participation Proposal with their response.

NYCEDC plans to prequalify firms on the basis of factors stated in the RFQ which include, but are not limited to: the firm’s demonstrated experience and expertise in the particular trade for which the firm is submitting its qualifications; the firm’s record regarding accidents and lost work days on construction projects; and the firm’s resources available for the Project.

NYCEDC and H+H will be contracting with multiple design and engineering firms for all contract documents associated with the Services.  The Construction Management firm (CM) will provide construction management services for the Project, including holding all construction subcontracts for the Project.

Develop Transitional Residences for Homeless Families + Drop-In Center for Adults

November 2, 2020- The Department of Homeless Services is soliciting proposals from organizations interested in developing and operating transitional residences for homeless adults and families including the Neighborhood Based Cluster Residence and drop-in centers for adults. This is an open-ended solicitation; there is no due date for submission. Proposals will be reviewed by the Department as they are received and contracts will be awarded on an on-going basis, until the agency’s capacity needs are met. DHS reserves the right to award a contract on the basis of initial offers received without discussion. Contracts will be awarded to responsible applicants whose negotiated offers are determined to be the most advantageous to the City, taking into consideration the price and other such factors and criteria set-forth in the RFP. Contract award will be subject to the timely completion of contract negotiations between the agency and the selected proposer.

It is anticipated that the transitional residence contracts will range from 3 to 30 years including renewal options and depending on the financial terms and conditions.

Pursuant to Section 312 (c) (1) (ii) of the New York City Charter, the Competitive Sealed Bid procurement method is not the most advantageous method because judgment is required in evaluating competing proposals, and it is in the best interest of the city to require a balancing of price, quality and other factors.

Thus, pursuant to Section 3-03 (c) of the Procurement Policy Board Rules, the open ended RFP will be used because the Department will select qualified providers to develop and operate transitional residences in order to address the need to create additional shelter capacity citywide. In addition, this open-ended method will provide interested applicants an opportunity to propose sites for the targeted population, as they become available for shelter development.

All proposers must meet the following minimum qualifications 1) must have a tax exempt status under 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code and or be legally incorporated as a for-profit entity; 2) must demonstrate that they have, or can obtain by the contract start date, site control of the proposed Standalone facility location(s); and 3) must demonstrate an intent to enter into lease agreements with the owner(s) or management designee(s) for each property.

The NYC Industrial Developer Fund is a $150 million public/private fund to provide project financing for industrial real estate development projects in New York City.  The Fund is designed to catalyze investment in 400,000 sf of new or renovated industrial real estate workspace across New York City, supporting the creation of as many as 1,200 quality and accessible industrial jobs by 2020.The Industrial Developer Fund supports industrial job-creation in New York City by providing public/private financing for industrial real estate development projects.  Total size of the Fund is $150 million, which includes approximately $60 million in public funds leveraging $90 million in private financing.

The Industrial Developer Fund provides qualified real estate developers with partial public gap-financing assistance in the form of grants, low-interest subordinate loans, and guarantees on senior private loans.  These public funds are intended to leverage owner equity so that the transaction merits traditional bank/senior lender financing provided under the Fund structure.

Qualified projects seeking fund support will be considered when high impact projects are unable to move forward due to funding gaps.  The Fund will consider both non-profit and for-profit entities.
