As promised earlier this year, the New York City Economic Development Corporation has launched a request for expressions of interest (RFEI) to redevelop the crumbling, 80-acre Seaview Hospital complex at 460 Brielle Avenue, in central Staten Island. The city is seeking a development team to transform the former tuberculosis hospital into a mixed-use neighborhood called Sea View Healthy Community. There would be a mix of medical offices, retail spaces, residential units including affordable housing, community facilities, and public open space. Proposals are due March 24, 2017, DNAinfo reported.

The residential units in the rest of the building should average 890 square feet apiece. There will also be seven off-street parking spaces, six of which will be housed in an underground garage.
