Request for Proposals 880 First Street Redevelopment Project

INTRODUCTION

The City of Muskegon is seeking developers with experience and capability building and implementing high quality mixed used developments. The City’s objective is to negotiate and enter into an agreement with the selected developer to construct and manage a new commercial/residential development at 880 First Street, a 5 story city owned building adjacent to mixed use market rate developments HighPoint Flats, Heritage Square Townhomes, and Lakeview Lofts. The total development area is negotiable, but can be as large as 40,000 square feet of developable space. The ideal proposal will include multiple commercial bays with ingress/egress to both First and Clay Street, as well as a market rate residential unit proposal for upper floors. Outdoor seating areas and shared greenspace are highly encouraged.

The objective of this RFP is to determine the level of interest and number of qualified available developers for the concept identified above. Responses to this RFP should provide general ideas and strategies for the development of the site including resumes and relevant qualifications for the development team. The City will review qualification packages to select experienced and qualified developers to advance to the final selection process which may include a more detailed proposal leading to the selection of a preferred developer, and the eventual disposition of the development site through sale or lease under mutually beneficial financial terms. The City will look favorably on respondents that possess the capacity and interest to carry their development from concept to implementation, including design/build capability, aesthetically pleasing design concepts, access to capital, and management strategy.

The City of Muskegon has experienced significant growth and development in all sectors, including its traditional downtown corridors. The selected development team will successfully demonstrate how their concept will bring new and valuable offerings to this environment and what benefit their development will bring to the further redevelopment of the Muskegon community. The City will favorably review developments which satisfy the listed Areas of Interest, which are described in detail in the following section.

Depending on the number and quality of responses received, the City reserves the right to request additional information from some or all respondents, or to issue additional requests to advance the review process. This process does not obligate the City of Muskegon or any of its agents, assigns, or employees to select or negotiate with any development team or to accept offers which the City, in its sole judgment, determines not to be in the best interest of the City and its residents. Thank you for your interest in this development opportunity.

All responses are due by August 12th, 2019
