The South Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation (SoBRO) seeks proposals from qualified teams to provide community planning, real estate development feasibility, and economic development strategy services for the Port Morris Lower Concourse Brownfield Opportunity Areas (BOA) Step 3 Implementation Strategy. The selected consultant will work in collaboration with SoBRO staff to engage local stakeholders; identify revitalization strategies for under-utilized or contaminated property in the Lower Concourse BOA area; and, produce a critical pathway for implementation of prioritized redevelopment projects.

*Please note: This is the second of two RFPs that SoBRO has released for the South Bronx. SoBRO's first RFP, released on August 16, 2013, focuses on the East River BOA, while the RFP attached focuses on the Lower Concourse BOA. These areas represent two distinct, non-adjoining, characteristically different sections of the South Bronx and therefore call for separate scopes of work.

The submission deadline is September 30, 2013. SoBRO will hold a pre-bid conference call on August 30, 2013, from 10:00am to 11:00am to address any questions related to the two RFPs. For more information, please contact Sarit Platkin at (718) 732-7561 or
