Request for Proposals

CORRECTION: Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation d/b/a Brooklyn Bridge Park (“BBP”) issues this Request for Proposals (“RFP”) seeking proposals to fit out, maintain, and operate a food and beverage concession of premium quality at a concession space on Pier 5 (the “Concession”) in Brooklyn Bridge Park (the “Park”).

BBP is a not-for-profit corporation, responsible for planning, constructing, maintaining, and operating the Park, an 85 acre, sustainable, waterfront park stretching 1.3 miles along Brooklyn’s East River shoreline. BBP’s mission is to create and maintain a world-class park as a recreational, environmental, and cultural destination for residents of, and visitors to, New York City. BBP operates under a mandate, embodied by its General Project Plan, to be financially self-sustaining, which includes the activation of certain development sites within the project’s footprint.

The renaissance that Brooklyn has experienced over the past decade is nowhere more evident than in the innovative and energetic restaurant scene and food culture that have come to be one of the borough’s defining characteristics. Brooklyn food culture is on the cutting edge of many national trends featuring local, organic, and fresh ingredients prepared using both time-tested and unique methods.

The Pier 5 concession offers a unique opportunity to cater to a wide variety of customers from a location adjacent to sports fields, a picnic area, and a marina. BBP is seeking a concessionaire (the “Concessionaire”) who will operate and maintain the Concession at the highest standards of design and offerings, making a significant improvement to the quality and ambience of the Park.

The Concessionaire will be responsible for all aspects of the Concession, including the design, implementation of capital improvements (if any), installation of equipment, maintenance, and operation, pursuant to a license agreement with BBP. The initial term will be for ten (10) years, with one three-year renewal option granted at BBP’s sole discretion.

Please note there is an information session and site visit on WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 2nd, 2019, at 10:00 am. The last day to submit questions is October 7, 2019 and the answers will be posted on October 11, 2019 on the City Record`s website. Proposals are due on October 28th, 2019 at 3:00pm.
