New York City continued its expansion into offshore wind by offering another property up for potential development, part of a drive by the Big Apple to reap industrial benefits from the US sector's impending boom.

New York City Economic Development Corporation ( NYC EDC), a non-profit that leverages city assets for the good of local businesses and the community, issued a request for proposals (RfP) for a property in Staten Island, New York City, for use in maritime industries, including offshore wind.
