City issues first affordable housing RFP requiring modular construction


The city’s requests for proposals often come with affordable housing requirements, but this one has a rare proviso: The vision for an L-shaped lot will need to be a modular one.

The Department of Housing Preservation and Development is issuing an RFP on Thursday for a mixed-use modular building in East New York. The city-owned site — which spans 49,397 square feet — sits on Eldert Lane between Pitkin and Glenmore avenues. The RFP calls for a project that is “100 percent affordable.”

According to HPD, this is the first time in history that the city is issuing an RFP for affordable housing that explicitly requires modular construction.
