New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking a consultant or consultant team for construction management and related services for the construction of the 79th Street Boat Basin and Dockhouse project, located at West 79th Street in the Hudson River within Riverside Park on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. This project will demolish, dredge, reconstruct and expand the marina and Dockhouse and provide utility connections to the Rotunda.

The existing 79th Street Boat Basin consists of timber floating docks, providing 4,125 LF of usable dock space, mostly supported by timber piling. The project site sustained extensive damage as a result of Superstorm Sandy. Subsequent to the storm, A-Dock was reconstructed in 2016 with FEMA funding. The new project proposes replacement and expansion of all other fixed piers, wave screens, and floating docks. The marina includes a Dockhouse of approximately 1,200 SF which contains services for the marina’s patrons and employees. The Dockhouse facility will be enlarged, elevated and reconstructed south of its current location.

NYCEDC plans to select a consultant on the basis of factors stated in the RFP which include, but are not limited to: the quality of the proposal, experience of key staff identified in the proposal, experience and quality of any subcontractors proposed, demonstrated successful experience in performing services similar to those encompassed in the RFP, and the proposed fee.
