Real Estate In-Depth | May 11, 2022

200 Main St. Ossining

OSSINING—The Village of Ossining has issued a request for proposal (RFP) from a qualified developer for the adaptive reuse of a National Register-listed historic building—200 Main St., which was built in 1908 and sits on a village-owned parcel at the intersection of Main Street and NYS Route 9 (Highland Avenue).

The village stated in its May 9th announcement that it is “desirous of a developer with a good track record, sound financial backing, and commitment to implementing creative, quality development in a timely manner. The village is open to working collaboratively to support the long-term financial viability of the proposed project by leveraging grant funding.”

The village had issued an RFP on the 200 Main St. property on March 21, 2022.

The deadline for responses to the reissued RFP is 4:30 pm on Monday, June 20, 2022.

The village listed among its goals and objectives for the property’s redevelopment:

• Establish this historic site as a destination gateway to Ossining’s Main Street and Riverfront corridor.

• Further catalyze economic growth and vibrancy of this rapidly transforming community.

• Leverage the significant local and state investment that is being made in Ossining’s downtown, waterfront district with the development of a unique, experiential retail establishment.

In November 2021, the Village of Ossining was selected as a recipient of the New York State Regional Economic Development Council’s highly competitive $10 Million Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI). Ossining is currently embarking on a six-month planning process that will link the community’s vision, goals, and strategies to specific projects that have the potential to revitalize Downtown Ossining. The identification of a private sector developer, or sponsor, for the adaptive rehabilitation and reuse of 200 Main Street will help greatly to position this project as a compelling opportunity for DRI funding.
