MOTT HAVEN — The city is looking for a developer to build a mixed-income affordable housing project that includes commercial and community space on a roughly 158,000 square foot site along the Harlem River by the Major Deegan Expressway and the W. 145th Street bridge.

The New York City Economic Development Corporation and the Department of Housing Preservation and Development recently put out a request for expressions of interest in developing the vacant site, called Lower Concourse North, and responses are due to the NYCEDC on Oct. 11 by 4 p.m.

“This RFEI in the Lower Concourse will create new affordable housing options, amenities, and services along the Harlem River, giving residents of the South Bronx much-needed access to their waterfront," NYCEDC President Maria Torres-Springer said in a statement.

The site is located south of Yankee Stadium and across from the Bronx Terminal Market shopping mall, and redeveloping it should provide opportunities to expand the adjacent Mill Pond Park, according to the NYCEDC.

The RFEI can be downloaded online or picked up at the NYCEDC on the fourth floor of 110 William St. Respondents can submit questions to the EDC at LowerConcourseRFEI@edc.nyc until 5 p.m. on Sept. 23, and answers will be posted online by Oct. 4.

Applicants should submit six copies of their proposal to NYCEDC, 110 William St., 4th Floor, Mailroom Bid Desk, New York, NY 10038, Attention: Maryann Catalano, Senior Vice President, Contracts.
