After being vacant for over 40 years, the future is set for Manhattan's Seward Park.
The City Council Thursday approved a new mixed use plan for the largest undeveloped lot below 96th Street.
The proposal will bring over 1,000 units of housing to the Lower East Side in addition to commercial space.
It also reserves space for a new school if the community should want it.
According to the city, the project is expected to create 5,000 construction jobs and 1,000 permanent jobs.
Officials will start accepting bids from developers early next year.
