This lot is part of the Harlem-East Harlem Urban Renewal Plan.

The Harlem–East Harlem plan was adopted in 1968, last revised in 2008, and expires in 2020. It outlines residential, commercial, institutional (including schools, libraries, community centers, hospitals, and other essential service uses), and industrial uses for the site.

No particular use was planned for this lot before it was acquired by the City as part of a scheme to "modernize" the area.

The lot is still in the City inventory. Maybe it's time to ask again?

Allen --

Who specifically did you speak with and which lots are there specific plans for? Did they say when these plans would start being realized or was it a more general "all the land that is under the jurisdiction of HPD is intended to be housing" sort of plan? There IS a big difference but sometimes folks in City agencies aren't that good at articulating it.

For example, when neighbors of 100 Quincy first called HPD in 2012, they were told that development was planned for 2016 (you can see this on the lot's page: - click the little "+" next to organizing history). 2016 was three years away - too long for any concrete plans for funding a building project to have already been made. The community persisted in its questions and its organizing; HPD eventually independently reviewed the viability of housing ever being built on the site and decided that it was unlikely. The land was transferred to the Parks Department and the group got a GreenThumb license.

Can you share what specific plans there are for these sites if you know? or call back and ask for them!
