This Wednesday, October 23, the NYCHPD will announce the winner of the FAR ROC Design Competition at the Arverne East site in the Rockaways. The two-phase design competition asked applicants to use the Arverne East site, which is more than 80 acres, as a template to identify and explore opportunities for new mixed-use, mixed-income, sustainable and storm-resilient development along the waterfront. The city announced the competition this spring and selected four finalists this summer, giving them each $30,000 to develop their proposals. The winner will receive an additional cash prize of $30,000. Stay tuned for news of the winner. The community is also working on interim uses for the vacant land until more permanent development takes hold.
