City officials are moving forward with plans to revive the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal.

The city is seeking one or more companies to operate the long-inactive 72-acre harbor, which is slated to open in 2016, Crain’s reported. The dock can be used for importing and exporting cars and other services, but the city hopes to eventually install a port facility that can handle large container ships.

The city’s request for proposals from potential operators follows a contentious year over the future of the port. In January, the city walked away from a $115 million plan to redevelop the port due to a dispute with Council member Carlos Menchaca. Officials agreed in April to hand over control of the port to the the city’s Economic Development Corporation.

The deal allowed Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration to secure a 39-year lease and possibly sublease 72 acres of the facility to a shipping or marine cargo tenant. [Crain’s]Kathryn Brenzel
