Request for Qualifications: 16th Street Mall Design-Build Project

General Statement of Work

Elevate Denver is a 10-year, $937 million general obligation bond program approved by voters in 2017, that will enhance the City and County of Denver by providing critical improvements to the City’s infrastructure—improving our roads, sidewalks, parks, recreation centers, libraries, cultural centers, public-owned buildings and safety facilities.

The goal of the project is to utilize state and local funds as well as U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) grant funds to reconstruct and renovate the 16th Street Mall to increase opportunities for public use of the Mall as an iconic civic space for leisure, commerce, and tourism; address the deteriorating infrastructure which will allow for reasonable maintenance frequency and reduce costs to businesses and taxpayers; improve safety for pedestrians and vehicles; and maintain mobility for desired transit operations for all users. The work included for this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) includes the design and construction of a new granite paver system, realigned Transit Way, new trees, and new underground infrastructure to replace the Mall’s failing and deteriorating infrastructure in order to reduce safety concerns and the negative effects of frequent maintenance and repair activities to the Free MallRide service. The work also includes replicating the original pattern of the granite pavers with improved surface friction, use or replication of the existing light fixtures, delineating the pedestrian walkways from the Transit Way with an amenity zone, creating wider pedestrian walkways to better accommodate pedestrian volumes, and continuation of the Free MallRide on the Mall between Denver Union Station and Civic Center Station.
