UTICA – The City of Utica is moving ahead with efforts to develop the city’s Harbor Point site.
Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri and the Utica Harbor Point Development Corporation have released a request for proposals to develop a more than 17-acre site on the northeast edge of Utica’s Harbor Point. According to city officials, the Harbor Point Master Plan calls for a mixed-use project with upper-floor apartments, retail and commercial spaces on the ground floor, and a parking lot on the ground floor, according to city officials.
Plans to develop the city’s inner harbor have been in the works since 2013.
“The UHPDC and the City of Utica have invested significantly in the success of this project,” Palmieri said in a news release. “And this work is coming to fruition just steps away from the redevelopment in Bagg’s Square, the exciting growth in the sports and entertainment district around the Adirondack Bank Center at Utica Memorial Auditorium, and within 15 miles of the existing and emerging major employment centers of Griffiss Business and Technology Park, as well as Utica Nanocenter. We look forward to reviewing interested developer proposals to see how they will align with our vision for the project site.”
Proposals for the project are being accepted until 5 p.m. Friday, July 28. For more information about the request for proposals, click here.
