HPD recently announced a new plan for the Brownsville neighborhood, including plans for its vacant lots:

Developing Brownsville's Vacant Land

A critical strategy to the implementation of this plan will be a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the development of City-owned vacant land. An RFP is a competitive review process in which HPD asks developers to submit project proposals that respond to defined goals and guidelines that are informed by the community. Non-profit and for-profit teams are eligible to apply for and seek City financing for their proposals. HPD works together with development teams to ensure that projects are designed and built in keeping with the agency's standards for quality construction and environmental sustainability.

The Brownsville RFP, to be issued in summer 2017, will encourage respondents to incorporate that goals and strategies outlined in this neighborhood plan. The RFP will feature three themes that reflect community priorities:

Christopher-Glenmore, Innovation and Entrepreneurship: Trades and tech training, business incubation, innovative building design, and neighborhood retail

Rockaway-Chester, Arts and Culture: Cultural center, art incorporated into building design, and creative retail

Livonia Avenue, Healthy Living and Food Systems: Gardening and healthy food stores, sit-down restaurants, services and community spaces that promote health, and building design that promotes healthy living
