Specifically, the space will serve three primary functions; dedicated sector workspace, a co-located or adjacent prototyping and testing facility, and shared support services (e.g. demonstration space, mentorship, community building). Ultimately the Hub will provide a home for urban technology startups to further develop collaboration, innovation, and successful growth in NYC.

NYCEDC plans to select an Operator on the basis of factors stated in the RFP which include, but are not limited to: the quality of the proposal, experience of key staff identified in the proposal, experience and quality of any subcontractors proposed, demonstrated successful experience in performing services similar to those encompassed in the RFP, the proposed concept and program, the quality of the space identified, financial feasibility, economic and community impact, and schedule.

Teleport Site B-1

September 25, 2015– The New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”) and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (“the Port Authority”) are seeking proposals to develop a manufacturing use on all or part of an 18-acre site (“the Site”) located within Staten Island’s industrial “Working West Shore.” The successful response to this request for proposals (RFP) will be for a project that generates quality jobs in a dynamic industry; depending on the strength of the response, the City may be willing to consider certain forms of tax relief and other financial assistance to support the project’s development.

This RFP follows a broader Request for Expressions of Interest (“RFEI”) issued for the entire Teleport last year. Responses to that RFEI and subsequent diligence have informed the current understanding of which uses might be desirable and possible at the Site today.

Based upon that diligence, Modular Construction Assembly, Flood Defense System fabrication, and the manufacture of Green Energy systems (solar panels, wind turbines) were identified as uses that may be good fits for the Site, and as growth industries with strong potential in the region and on Staten Island’s West Shore. NYCEDC and the Port Authority will also consider other manufacturing uses not listed above; the foregoing merely represents examples of uses considered and explored in the preparation of this RFP.

NYCEDC plans to select a development team on the basis of factors stated in the open RFP which include, but are not limited to: the quality of the proposal, experience of key staff identified in the proposal, experience and quality of any subcontractors proposed, demonstrated successful experience in performing services similar to those encompassed in the open RFP.

If a proposal is selected, it will be on the basis of a thoughtful approach to both maximizing the development potential of the Site and managing it in a manner that acts as a catalyst to the economy of Staten Island as a whole. Responses to this RFP should aim to accomplish the following goals (“Development Goals”):

  • Identify a development plan for one or more manufacturing uses on the Site.
  • Preserve and expand quality jobs for local residents and help fulfill the area’s potential as a vital employment center.
  • Establish a site plan that addresses the infrastructure, access and utility needs for the proposed project and is not incompatible with the surrounding uses at The Teleport.
  • Propose an environmentally sensitive development that considers on-site and nearby ecological resources and neighboring communities.

This project has Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise (“M/WBE”) participation goals, and all respondents will be required to submit an M/WBE Sub- Contractors Participation Plan with their response. To learn more about NYCEDC’s M/WBE program, visit http://www.nycedc.com/opportunitymwdbe.
