Village of Ossining Seeks Interested Developers For Adaptive Reuse of Historic Downtown Building
OSSINING—The Village of Ossining announced on March 21 it had issued a request for proposal (RFP) from a qualified developer for the adaptive reuse of a National Register-listed historic building built in 1908, which sits on a village-owned parcel located at 200 Main St., located at the intersection of Main Street and New York State Route 9 (Highland Avenue).
The village stated in the announcement that it is “desirous of a developer with a good track record, sound financial backing, and commitment to implementing creative, quality development in a timely manner. The Village is open to working collaboratively to support the long-term financial viability of the proposed project by leveraging grant funding.”
Responses are due on Friday, April 22, 2022.
Among the village’s goals and objectives in connection with the 200 Main St. project include: establish this historic site as a destination gateway to Ossining’s Main Street and Riverfront corridor; further catalyze economic growth and vibrancy of this rapidly transforming community and leverage the significant local and state investment that is being made in Ossining’s downtown, waterfront district with the development of a unique, experiential retail establishment.
In November 2021, the Village of Ossining was selected as a recipient of the New York State Regional Economic Development Council’s highly competitive $10-million Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI). Ossining is currently embarking on a six-month planning process that will link the community’s vision, goals, and strategies to specific projects that have the potential to revitalize Downtown Ossining. The identification of a private sector developer, or sponsor, for the adaptive rehabilitation and reuse of 200 Main Street will help greatly to position this project as a compelling opportunity for DRI funding, the village stated.
