The Parks Department and the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation have launched a request for proposals (RFP) to redevelop the long-vacant, single-story Allen Street pedestrian mall, the former public bathroom located at the intersection with Delancey Street on the Lower East Side. As disclosed earlier this year, the city hopes a developer or business can convert the little building into a “food service facility,” DNAinfo reported. Community facilities are apparently not being considered at this time. Repairs to the structure will have to include significant work to the roof, walls, and floors, in addition to the replacement of door and windows, and the installation of necessary infrastructure. The restaurant and/or food vendor may also include outside seating. Proposals are due September 15, and the city expects to select a team in early 2017.
