RFP for affordable modular housing a first in NYC

The New York City Department of Preservation and Housing recently issued a request for proposals for a new mixed-use affordable housing project in Brooklyn requiring developers to use modular construction methods. The project is the first of its kind to fall under the department’s Housing 2.0 modular construction initiative. Using modular construction will allow the department to take advantage of new building technology and the latest in design to reduce construction costs, get housing up faster and respond more quickly to demographic shifts, officials said in plan documents.
