As you may know, the city has plans to redevelop the city-owned site that P.C. Richard (and Son!) has leased the past 19 years at 124 E. 14th St. at Irving Place.
As Crain's first reported last month, the city's Economic Development Corp. (EDC) is now accepting proposals to encourage developers "to pitch projects that include new office space for booming industries in the neighborhood, such as technology and creative businesses."
Tomorrow night at 6:30, CB3's Economic Development Committee will hear an RFP overview ... the city's EDC reps are also looking for local input on the project.
The meeting is at the Village View Community Room, 175 E. Fourth St. between Avenue A and First Avenue.
The P.C. Richard and Son discussion follows a presentation about Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer's Small Business Jobs Survival Act.
The P.C. Richard is set to close when the lease is up in February. The electronics store recently announced plans to open its first location in Harlem.
