A $147-million reconstruction program at the Queens Hospital Center in Jamaica is making three parcels available for development. The city’s Economic Development Corp. has issued an RFP for redevelopment of a two-story, 28,000-sf building with large windows, extended solariums and open sundecks on cantilevered concrete decks. Proposals are being sought that create age-restricted, medically supportive housing.

The second parcel, now a parking lot, is approximately 278,000 sf, and the third is about 127,000 sf. The latter has building on it that will be demolished once the hospital vacates the site next year.

The city is seeking long-term ground leases of up to 99 years, although sale of the properties will be considered.

Proposals are being sought for assisted senior living, biomedical research, staff housing, and wellness/health or child-care centers. The deadline for submissions is October 31. Information is available at (212) 312-3969 and [email protected] (insert HC-0800 in the subject line).
