Statement from Borough President Diaz
RE: New RFP for the Kingsbridge Armory
“I am thrilled that Mayor Bloomberg and this administration have announced that a new request for proposals (RFP) for the Kingsbridge Armory will be released. The usage of the Kingsbridge Armory has been a major priority of my administration, and this new RFP will allow the City to seek developers from a wide spectrum of potential uses, allowing us to bring a project that will enhance and compliment the surrounding neighborhood to this historic structure.
“I know that this new RFP will see significant interest, given the number of different entities that came before the Kingsbridge Armory Task Force to express their desire to be a part of a future development of this site. I would like to thank Mayor Bloomberg, his administration and the New York City Economic Development Corporation for working with my office to develop a strong new RFP for the Kingsbridge Armory, and I will continue to partner with the City to make this development a success,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
