HACKENSACK, N.J. -- A developer is being sought by Hackensack to transform a 4.3-acre parking lot into a complementary component of the city's ongoing downtown revitalization.
The site currently known as Parking Lot C is located across from Foschini Park between the East Salem Street Extension, Midtown Bridge Approach and Midtown Place. It's already designated as a Redevelopment Area with an adopted Redevelopment Plan in place.
An informational meeting and site tour will be held by the city on Sept. 29.
“Hackensack is experiencing a remarkable rebirth and is well on its way to becoming a true destination city right in the heart of Bergen County,” said Mayor John Labrosse. “We see redeveloping this property as another crucial step in securing our community’s future by generating substantial new tax revenue and continuing to grow our city in a responsible, sustainable way that will benefit all of our residents and taxpayers.”
The Request for Proposals calls for experienced redevelopers to present their qualifications and conceptual plans for the site, including a mix of residential units, retail, public parking and open public space.
RFP packages may be obtained from the City Clerk’s office during regular business hours and are also available on the city website .
All submissions are due by Nov. 18, and require the submission of a Respondent Information Sheet at least 10 days prior to the submission deadline.
More than 1,000 new residential units are currently under construction or approved in Hackensack, with most concentrated in the City’s Downtown Rehabilitation Area along Main Street.
Hackensack has aggressively sought out redevelopment opportunities in the area that will generate significant new municipal tax revenue while returning people to the city’s downtown district to live, work and play.
At the same time, the city is investing in recreational facilities, open space and community attractions like the new Performing Arts Center, meeting its commitment to balanced community development.
