NYCEDC in collaboration with the Hudson River Park Trust is seeking proposals that will change the course of waterfront construction and help the City of New York build and maintain waterfront infrastructure in a more cost effective and sustainable manner.


This competition will have two phases. The RFEI is Phase I. The final selection and award for Change the Course – NYC Waterfront Construction competition (CTC) will be based on responses to a future Request for Proposals (RFP/Phase II) to be released after this RFEI/Phase I process is completed. NYCEDC anticipates that the future RFP will be based in part on responses to this RFEI and that the RFP may only be solicited from and open to certain respondents to this RFEI, selected by NYCEDC, in its sole discretion. It is expected that the RFP will be released soon after review of the RFEI submissions.

Competition Goals

The goal of the CTC competition is to solicit proposals that:

  • Identify influences and factors which drive the increasing costs and duration of marine construction in NYC (for example: obsolete technologies, permitting processes, current regulations, environmental issues, outdated science studies, labor issues and efficiencies, etc.); and
  • Propose solutions to said influences and factors that are cost effective, sustainable and ethically sound


  • Dec 18, 2012—Submissions due for Phase I
  • Jan 08, 2013—Semifinalists announced
  • Feb 2013—Submissions due for Phase II
  • Mar 2013—Presentations to Selection Panel (to be scheduled individually)
  • Mar 2013—Awards announced


NYCEDC is seeking responses from individuals and/or teams which can include policy experts, engineering firms, contractors, manufacturers, developers, construction managers, environmental engineers, entrepreneurs, academic institutions, or students, as well as other interested and concerned parties.


  • Proposal completeness: the degree of completeness of the response in meeting the specific requirements and goals of the competition.
  • Cost savings achieved: shown through supporting documentation.
  • Feasibility of the proposal: the practicality of implementation and achievability of cost savings.


  • 1st Place: $50,000 (USD)
