NYCEDC is seeking a passionate Development Project Manager to join our dynamic team of skilled and dedicated New Yorkers committed to making New York City a more prosperous place to live and work.

The Development Department spearheads NYCEDC and interagency efforts on complex planning and development projects which advance the City’s competitiveness, enhancing the City as a place to live, work and visit through promoting a diverse economic base; fostering vibrant, livable and accessible neighborhoods; executing keystone economic development projects; leveraging diverse waterfront assets for economic, recreational and resiliency uses; and supporting and expanding the City’s freight, maritime, aviation and transit transportation networks. Specifically, Development works to identify strategic locations for public involvement and/or investment; develop and facilitate appropriate planning and community outreach processes; shape use and development.

Examples of Development’s role in key City initiatives can be seen in neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs, including in neighborhood planning efforts such as Inwood, Manhattan and Downtown Far Rockaway, Queens, and through our engagement with large-scale planning efforts including the Sunnyside Yards Overbuild Feasibility Study, the Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency project, and the Downtown Staten Island initiative.  The Development Department works closely with staff at various City agencies in support of high-profile Administration rezoning and redevelopment efforts, and provides strategic guidance to other divisions within NYCEDC in relation to community engagement, neighborhood planning, public-private partnerships, and major infrastructure investments.
