The Battery Park City Authority.

The Battery Park City Authority is thisclose to announcing a winner for the coveted site 18a green residential building.

Just last week, four of the nine bidders were considered so outstanding and so close, no decision had been made. And Timothy Carey, president of the BPCA, was stuck with the RFP process that cannot allow him to just hand out some of the remaining six residential sites.

"You take this one, you take that one," he wished he could say.

Just recently, bidders were asked to break down their environmentally friendly items, and now, the BCPA has created a matrix to assess them.

"We are rating that item by item, and also looking at the dollar commitment to the sustainability. Those are two of the items in our checklist," he said.

But they are also concerned about the financial feasibility of the buildings, and that they meet Battery Park's "established and long-term development guidelines."

"All of the developers addressed our green portion in different ways and some of them quite interestingly reached out to the sustainable community and put forth interesting and innovative proposals that were are considering," he said.

While good government operative Carey would not reveal the bidders, conversations in the community have revealed the following teams: Avalon Bay, Beyer Blinder Belle, Jonathan Rose; Durst/Fetner, Fox & Fowle, Flack + Kurtz; Related, Robert A.M. Stem, Cosintini; Rockrose, Barry Dimson, Gruzen Samton, Flack + Kurtz; Donald Zucker, Costas Kondylis; Brodsky/Lehrer, Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer, Flack + Kurtz; Albanese, Schuman Lichtenstein Claman, Cosintini; Jeffrey Levine, Arquitectonica, Flack + Kurtz.

May the Greenest Gods & Goddesses win. And don't worry, each of the remaining sites will also get a green RFP. Soon.
