Real Estate Counsel RFP

The Trust for Governors Island (“The Trust”) seeks a law firm to provide on-call real estate legal counsel services. The Trust is responsible for the maintenance and development of Governors Island (the “Island”), a 172-acre island in New York Harbor nestled between Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn waterfront. A former military base, the Island now serves as a popular seasonal destination and attracts nearly 800,000 visitors per year via ferries from Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. The Island has unparalleled development opportunities. Specifically, the northern portion of the Island includes several existing tenants and features 1.5 million square feet in historic buildings that are being actively marketed. The southern portion of the Island is undergoing a rezoning that began in August 2018 and will entitle up to 4.5 million square feet of commercial, academic, cultural, and institutional development space.
