RFP Issued for Tobacco Warehouse in DUMBO

 Brooklyn Bridge Park Corp. (BBPC) Wednesday announced it is seeking proposals for "the rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of the former Tobacco Warehouse on the waterfront in DUMBO,"according to the Brooklyn Eagle.

BBPC is seeking applicants "who are interested in leasing, redeveloping and being the primary user of the site as a cultural or educational facility with community uses."

The roofless warehouse has almost iconic status in DUMBO.

The city has recently opted to open up the bidding to "for-group" companies as opposed to just non-profits, according to the NY Post, meaning that on-site revenues raised could go towards maintaining the park as opposed to just maintaining the warehouse.
