City Seeks Bids To Build In L.I.C.

By Liz Goff
The city is seeking proposals from interested developers to build housing and retail space above a portion of Long Island City at 11-24 Jackson Ave.

The city’s Economic Development Corporation and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) published a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the project in the City Record on January 23, seeking bids to develop the 58,000-square-foot project located over the rail yards, between 21st Street, Jackson Avenue and 49th Avenue.

New York City owns the air rights over the site at 11-24 Jackson Avenue that is currently utilized as a storage site for the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR.) The proposed development would be constructed over the rail yards, in a manner similar to the Hudson Yards project on Manhattan’s west side.

The RFP indicates any proposal for the mixed-use project must include a percentage of affordable housing
