Syracuse Housing Authority – Master Developer for East Adams Street Neighborhood

Syracuse Housing Authority – Master Developer for East Adams Street Neighborhood

The SHA is seeking responses to a Request for Proposal (RFP) from suppliers with the ability to provide Master Developer Services for the East Adams Street Neighborhood Project. Suppliers must have resources to deliver all service features detailed in the RFP. Proposal responses will be reviewed and ranked according to the parameters detailed in the RFP.


The East Adams Street Neighborhood of Syracuse is a neighborhood with tremendous potential. For the past several decades, however, the neighborhood has not been a place that supported, encouraged and equipped the individuals, families and children who live there to realize their potential. The residents of the East Adams Street neighborhood are important to the City of Syracuse. The vitality of the neighborhood is a critical component of the future health of the City.


The SHA and Blueprint 15, in partnership with neighborhood residents and stakeholders, are undertaking a bold vision to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty in the East Adams Street neighborhood. Together, the partners are working to create an environment where individuals and families (especially children) thrive and have genuine hope for successful futures and expectations that they will make important contributions to the world around them. New, high quality, mixed-income housing is a key component of that transformation plan.

SHA is requesting proposals from experienced Master Developers who can prove through their submittal that they possess the necessary qualifications to implement a comprehensive redevelopment of the East Adams Neighborhood in Syracuse, New York. The neighborhood is approximately 118 square acres on 27 square blocks. The SHA controls the majority of the property in the plan area, and other non-profit and educational institutions control much of the balance. The current property has 1060 units of public housing, 11 single family homes of LIHTC housing, and scattered privately owned single family homes or rental units. The successful respondent must demonstrate the ability and experience to implement a comprehensive mixed-finance and mixed-income and potentially mixed-use redevelopment plan for this neighborhood and the surrounding neighborhoods.
