The de Blasio administration is moving forward with the planned 30-acre, $100 million Hunter’s Point South development project in Long Island City, Queens.

The city’s Economic Development Corp. issued a request for proposals for the final portion of the job Friday, which includes the construction of a new waterfront park, roads, water mains and sewer lines that will support up to 5,000 units of housing.

“This RFP will help us build upon the incredible success of Hunter’s Point South so far, continuing to transform and abandoned industrial site into a dynamic, mixed-use community, and reconnecting Queens residents to the waterfront,” EDC spokesperson Ian Fried told Crain’s.

Billed as the largest housing development in more than 30 years, the undertaking will bring at least 3,000 below market rate units to the Long Island City peninsula.

Two buildings on the site are already under construction. The structures will hold 900 affordable units that will serve families of four making between $55,000 and $158,000 per year, Crain’s reported. A partnership between TF Cornerstone and nonprofit Selfhelp Community Services were selected to build a 1,193-unit complex in Mayor Bloomberg’s last month in office.

The new RFP looks to lay the foundation for the project’s final phase, which will involve the construction of an additional 3,000 units, according to Crain’s. [Crain’s]Julie Strickland
