RFP: Adaptive Reuse of Old City Hall in Downtown Tacoma WA
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - development opportunity, tacoma, Old City Hall restoration

As we continue to observe Historic Preservation Month (May 2018), the City of Tacoma invites you to respond to the Request for Proposal (RFP) to purchase Old City Hall (1892) located downtown at 625 South Commerce Street to create a high quality development that will contribute to the vitality of the Old City Hall District.  Here is the link to the document:

 

http://cms.cityoftacoma.org/Purchasing/Surplus/ED18-0224F.pdf

 

Over $1 billion are being invested into development projects in downtown Tacoma and its environs.  Most notably within the Old City Hall District, McMenamins of Portland, Oregon, known for their destination-style brew pubs and entertainment centers, is under construction with its $34 million restoration of the former Elks Temple, projected to open in spring 2019.  Developer Eli Moreno of Tacoma recently renovated the Union Club, adjacent to the Elks, for co-working space.  AxoWorks LLC of Seattle acquired 725 Broadway and is in process of developing co-working space there.

 

The City seeks a project that will create synergy with surrounding development, enable vibrancy and re-establish the building’s preeminence in community life.  Residential development, hotels and/or offices that support companies/organizations with financial strength, growth potential and career-ladder, livable wage jobs are strongly preferred.  Street-level, pedestrian-friendly uses, such as restaurants and retail venues, are highly desirable.

 

We encourage you to submit a Proposal as described in the checklist on Page 12 of the RFP by 5 p.m. Pacific Time on July 31, 2018.  In order for Developers to gain firsthand knowledge, the City will provide the only scheduled tour of the property for prospective purchasers on June 20, 2018, for which you must RSVP by June 15, 2018 before participating.

 

Thank you for your interest.  We look forward to receiving your Proposal regarding this exciting development opportunity.
