The City is seeking submissions from qualified developers for the reuse of a City-owned property located at 2222 Oakton Street. The site is comprised of a 13,000 square foot building that previously housed Evanston’s Recycling Center and now currently serves as storage for City equipment. The property is slightly less than one acre (39,000 square feet). The City is seeking to see it redeveloped for a destination-oriented use with dining and entertainment opportunities.
A two-step process will be used to identify the appropriate user for the property:
- Step 1: Identification of operators, developers, and teams which are capable of undertaking a redevelopment of this scope and scale. Developers interested in submitting qualifications, must respond to the Request for Qualifications no later than May 15, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. CST. City will review submissions and select a "short list" of qualified developers or operators to move to the Step 2 of the process.
- Step 2: The qualified individuals or teams selected during the Step 1 will be asked to provide a formal proposal for how they seek to reuse or redevelop the site. Details on Step 2, will be released following the completion of Step1 of the process.
Site Visit: Tours of the property and building will be offered on April 14, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at 2222 Oakton Street. Representatives from interested operators and development teams are encouraged to attend. Participation in the site visit is not a requirement of the solicitation.
Questions: Please direct questions to Johanna Nyden, Economic Development Division Manager, (firstname.lastname@example.org or 847.448.8014). All questions for this solicitation must be received by April 17, 2015. All questions and responses will be published on this page after April 24, 2015.
