Proposals expected this year for Governors Island

The state expects to solicit mixed-use proposals this year for the 172-acre Governors Island.
Avi Schick, president of the Empire State Development Corp., said the
weakening economy won’t scare off developers because the island has
“the best views” of the city’s skyline. In 2006, the first round of
bids was thrown out because they deemed unfeasible. New York Harbor
School, a public high school that focuses on marine studies, is the
first tentative tenant. As The Real Deal reported, NYU wants build a campus of up to 1 million square feet there.
