NYCEDC Announces First Round of M-CORE Recipients 

The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and the New York City Industrial Development Agency (NYCIDA) have announced the first round of awardees for the Manhattan Commercial Revitalization Program (M-CORE). WSA Waterfront LLC at 175 Water Street and HPS Investment Partners at 850 Third Avenue were selected as the first awardees. 

M-CORE supports the renovation of aging commercial office buildings to transform New York City’s commercial business districts. The program incentivizes owners to undertake investments that improve the quality of Manhattan’s office stock, create desirable workspaces, and make necessary upgrades for compliance with Local Law 97. 

“I am thrilled by the approval of the first two M-CORE deals and look forward to a future of revitalized, adaptable and dynamic office spaces that anchor downtowns where New Yorkers eat, play, work and study,”  said Deputy Mayor for Housing, Economic Development, and Workforce Maria Torres-Springer.
