The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), with the Department of Education and the Department of Housing Preservation & Development (HPD), is preparing to launch a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the L-shaped development site at 131 Livingston Street (a.k.a. 409 Red Hook Lane), in Downtown Brooklyn. The property would be ground-leased to a development team for 99 years and redeveloped, according to the Brooklyn Paper. The site could accommodate a mix of residential units, office space or retail, though the city will likely require the winning team to build a 500- to 700-seat public school. The lot is currently occupied by a six-story office building that houses various city-level government agencies, and it will likely end up getting demolished.

  1. Pretty sure this building is in a trust and can’t be torn down.

  2. A lot of air-condition outside, crowded but make an ozone and cool wind.
