Montgomery County, Maryland through this Request for Development Proposals (RFDP), seeks creative, viable development proposals (Proposals) from qualified teams (Proposers) to provide affordable senior residential housing and childcare on County-owned property located at 8901 and 8907 Colesville Road in Silver Spring (Site). The Site is the location of the former Silver Spring Library (Library). Proposals must include delivery methods and operations methods of a childcare center and senior rental housing with a significant affordability component (Project). Proposals may include the adaptive reuse of the existing Library building or new construction or a combination of the two.
Through a long-term arrangement, the County is seeking Proposals for the Site that can achieve the following objectives:
- Increase senior housing in the Silver Spring area. A minimum of 30% of the total units affordable are desired to be for households at or below 60% of the area median income (AMI).
- Contribute to the growing need for childcare services in Montgomery County by providing a facility that meets all regulatory requirements for services to young children;
- and Rely on the Offeror’s ability to perform the capital for improvements to the existing building and/or for construction of a new building at no cost to the County, and to provide a financially sustainable model for the proposed improvements and services.
- Incorporate green space that blends with adjacent public park space to the best possible extent.
