Request for Proposal – City of Muskegon Owned Lot on Western

The City of Muskegon is seeking proposal statements from qualified firms to purchase and develop the property located at 241-255 W. Western Avenue in downtown Muskegon, Michigan.

Request for Proposal Details

CITY OF MUSKEGON OWNED LOT
LOCATED AT 241-255 W. WESTERN AVE., MUSKEGON, MI

BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT
Once the location of Muskegon’s Woolworth’s and Kresge department stores and, later,
the Muskegon Mall, the property is located in the heart of downtown Muskegon, where
the city’s shopping, restaurants, hotels, brew pubs, and entertainment are centered. The
site is across the street from the popular Muskegon Farmers Market, and adjacent to the
Highpoint Flats residential project. The property is also minutes from the shoreline of
Muskegon Lake and other recreational opportunities such as Heritage Landing (festival
grounds), Hackley Park, and the Lakeshore Bike & Pedestrian Trail. A short drive or bike
ride away are the sugar sand beaches and clear waters of Lake Michigan. There are
multiple areas of recent improvements at the site, including: paved roads, storm sewers,
sidewalks, water, sewer, electric, gas, curbs, street lights, and standard utilities.

CITY OBJECTIVES
The City of Muskegon’s objective is to sell the property to a private person/entity to be
developed for mixed-use. It is important that the proposed development contributes in a
positive way and generates activity in the revitalizing downtown area. It is preferred that
the ground floor contain a variety of active commercial uses such as retail, restaurant,
etc. The upper floor(s) should be reserved for market-rate residential housing, preferably
mid-market apartments (“affordable” market-rate for students, young professionals, etc.).
The possibility of utilizing federal funds (HOME and/or CDBG) exists with the inclusion of
a mixed-income housing component.
Due to its expansive street-frontage along W. Western Ave., should a single building be
proposed to occupy the entire site, it is favorable that the massing/facade of the building
give the appearance of multiple structures. This property once held as many as eight
buildings with a variety of interesting facades; that visual diversity is a desired trait in the
redevelopment of downtown Muskegon. It is also the City’s goal to partner on shared
parking in this area, but there are no minimum off-street parking requirements within the
Form Based Code district.

SITE BACKGROUND AND DESCRIPTION
The property has a total area of 14,489 sq. ft. (0.33 acres). Approximately 241.5 feet of
frontage exists along W. Western Ave; the lot extends 60 feet deep creating additional
frontage along Jefferson St. The lot was previously owned by Parkland Properties, and
was acquired by the City of Muskegon in November of 2016. The property is located in a
Renaissance Zone until 2023. The property is located in the Mainstreet (MS) Context
Area of the City’s Form Based Code, which allows for a mix of uses including, but not
limited to, retail, restaurants, offices, residential, indoor theaters, and micro-breweries.
The City recently completed an environmental assessment on the site, which is available
for review. Also available are drawings from a previous residential project proposed for
the site.

property. Other factors, such as, but not limited to those above, will be given
consideration. Prior to accepting any proposal, the successful developer will need to
provide evidence of their financial capabilities. The City reserves the right to reject any
and/or all proposals.
Proposals are due back to the City of Muskegon no later than January 27, 2017.

PROPOSAL REVIEW PROCESS:
The City shall review the proposals, through a committee process, request written
clarification from proposers, if necessary, and may select two or more proposers as
finalists. At the conclusion of the review process, the recommended proposal shall be
presented to the Muskegon City Commission for approval and request to enter into a
Purchase Agreement, as well as a Development Agreement for the property. The City of
Muskegon reserves the right to terminate this process at any point prior to the selection
for a proposer and solicitation of proposals in no way obliges the City to proceed with
any development.

tenancy/occupancy plans
