Long Term Lease and Redevelopment of 24 Drydock Avenue in the Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park, South Boston

This RFP offers qualified developers and businesses an opportunity to submit proposals on vacant land with building thereon, located at 24-26 Drydock Avenue (“the Proposed Project Site”), on the corner of Tide Street in the Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park (“RLFMP”), South Boston. The Proposed Project Site consists of approximately 32,324 square feet of land area improved by a three story structure containing approximately 30,000 square feet of space, as well as a basement, which is a portion of a larger, BPDA-owned leased site that includes 24 Drydock Avenue, 32a Drydock Avenue and Drydock #3 (the "Leased Premises”). The Leased Premises are subject to a long term ground lease dated January 16, 2004, as amended, with Boston Ship Repair, LLC (“BSR”), as the Lessee and EDIC, as Lessor (the "Ground Lease"). Proponents must submit proposals that work in conjunction with BSR, with the goal of enhancing the potential uses and value of the Proposed Project Site in a manner consistent with the zoning and other regulatory standards that define the uses of the Proposed Project Site, while also capturing the opportunities presented by the 2017 RLFMP Master Plan Update ("Master Plan Update") and the Master Chapter 91 License for the RLFMP. Since the Leased Premises is comprised of both maritime dependent and general industrial uses, redevelopment of the Proposed Project Site could include an expansion of the already existing businesses in the RLFMP or could include distribution, cold storage, high-tech manufacturing, life sciences, research and development, aquaculture and general manufacturing. Proposals that further the BPDA’s commitment to promote maritime economic development and the retention and creation of job opportunities will be considered most advantageous. Forbidden uses in a DPA are not under any circumstances to be included as part of the Proposed Project Site redevelopment plans. Proposals including any of these forbidden uses shall be rejected as non-responsive. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DUE DATE IS EXTENDED TO JANUARY 29, 2019 at 12 p.m. per Addendum No. 3 issued December 21, 2018.
