Last summer 290 Liberty Street was torn down. An empty lot is left, with the remains of an old carriage house. The Newburgh Community Land Bank is accepting RFP’s for infill of this site.

The Land Bank had an engineering report done. Due to major structural deficiencies – a bulging eastern wall due to root growth, a cracked and separating north wall, it was concluded that the building could not be re-built in place using the existing footings.

For consideration, complete proposals must be received no later than 5:00 pm on Friday, July 13, 2018, either electronically at info(at)newburghcommunitylandbank.org or by delivery of two printed copies to NCLB offices at 15 Chambers St, Newburgh, NY, 12550.

It’s not every day you see a home on Benkard Avenue being sold or converted back to a 1-family property. These rowhomes work better as single-family properties which makes this one exciting. Not to mention the original details that remain: the porch, double front doors, the mantle etc.

Work still remains to be done, most likely the bathrooms and kitchen. It is being marketed as having all the restoration heavy lifting done, “historic plaster walls are refinished, floors are carefully resurfaced, the yard is tidy and ready to enjoy, and the basement is clean. Now you get to do the fun part: choosing the finishing fixtures and designing a home you love.”

Corner buildings are the gateways to neighborhoods. The City of Newburgh is looking to improve this corner of Liberty Street and South William by asking for RFP’s to develop 41 Liberty Street. It has been a long-neglected corner on this burgeoning block. They are seeking a qualified commercial owner-occupant with for-prof use – that will create jobs in the community and add tax revenue to the City.

It would be amazing to see development south on Liberty, just around the corner for 109 South William Street, slated for a new restaurant and venue space.

All responses must be received by Monday, April 30, 2018 by 4:00 pm.

The RFP is available on BidNet or on the City of Newburgh, Department of Planning and Development’s RFQs & Property RFPspage.
