City of Rensselaer Is Seeking Requests for Proposals for Kiliaen's Landing



The City of Rensselaer is seeking qualified developers to develop/redevelop all or phases of the Kiliaen’s Landing Study Area as outlined in the Kiliaens’s Landing Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) and accompanying materials (excluding the 41 acre RPI land at this time). Interested developers are encouraged to thoroughly review these documents prior to making a submission. These materials are available from the City of Rensselaer or at www.kiliaenslanding.com. Priority interest should be focused on the residential component; 18 acre forested segment of land directly north of the Livingston Avenue Train Bridge. Funding has been secured to build a waterfront walk/bike path connecting DeLaet’s Landing at the south with the City Boat Launch to the north.

The City has long recognized that attractive, sustainable development of its Hudson River waterfront is critical to the future identity of the City as a desirable place to live and work. The City’s vision of the Study Area states:

Development within the Kiliaen’s Landing Study Area will strengthen the fabric of the City of Rensselaer by enhancing opportunities to live, work and recreate along the Hudson River waterfront. This will be accomplished through improvements to the City boat launch, revitalization of the historic Barnett Mills complex, development of both residential and commercial space, and the addition of both passive and active recreational facilities. Redevelopment will focus on maintaining and improving public access to the waterfront, safe site circulation for both non-motorized and motorized uses, and site amenities that provide a physical connection to the surrounding community and encourages community interaction. Projects should incorporate sustainable development practices and techniques.

The City does not have control of the properties within the Study Area with the exception of the City’s boat launch. The City will assist developers to acquire and combine properties however it shall be the responsibility of the developer to establish the appropriate property control. The City makes no representations with respect to availabilities of any private property.
