City of Kingston Seeks Developer for Mixed-use Project at
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T.
Noble is pleased to announce the release of a Request for Expressions of
Interest (RFEI) for the City-owned parcel known as “Broadway Commons,” located
at 615 Broadway, SBL# 56.109-3-16.
As described in the RFEI, the City of Kingston is looking for interest from
developers to design, construct and operate a mixed-use development on this parcel. Consistent with
Kingston’s 2025 Comprehensive Plan, the
City is interested in a mix of housing
units and commercial/retail space. New development is also expected to
preserve and/or enhance existing public greenspace on the site.
This RFEI is intended as a
preliminary step to determine the level of interest by developers and potential
site users in redevelopment of the property.
“Broadway Commons, also known
as the Former Kings Inn site, is a unique property that is ripe for
redevelopment,” said Mayor Noble. “In the heart of Kingston, this site has the
potential to provide much needed workforce and affordable housing, while also
providing the opportunity for additional public and community space. We were
previously unsuccessful in finding a developer in 2019, when economic conditions impacted those efforts. I am
optimistic that we will be able to find the right partner who shares our City’s
vision for this site now.”
“The redevelopment of this
site is long overdue,” said Bartek Starodaj, Director of Housing Initiatives.
“I’m hopeful that this site will be redeveloped as a new anchor of vitality for
the Broadway Corridor and that new development will provide quality, affordable
housing in one of Kingston’s most walkable locations. We’re looking for a
vision that activates the streetscape and aligns with the needs of the city and
