The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) is reviving plans for an affordable residential building at the Harborview Terrace public housing complex at 520 West 55th Street, in Hell’s Kitchen. The new building, to rise on a parking lot next to the complex’s northern tower, would contain between 200 and 250 affordable apartments, DNAinfo reported. The city is scheduled to launch a request for expression of interest (RFEI) this spring after hosting meetings where the community can offer input. The selected development team would ground-lease the property for 99 years. Construction is projected to begin in 2019.
Plans from Atlantic Development Group for a 342-unit mixed-income building on the site collapsed in 2008.
