General Statement of Work: The selected team will work under the guidance of the City and County of Denver (CCD) and Downtown Denver Partnership (DDP) staff to further analyze, evaluate and develop 30% design plans for creating an urban trail along 21st Street from Coors Field to Benedict Fountain Park. This project will build off the previous work of the 21st and Wynkoop Street Urban Design Plan (2016) and the 5280 Loop Concept Design Study (on-going) and will evaluate modifications to the street from a range of perspectives, including changes to multimodal access, drainage/utilities, adjacent land uses, etc. This effort will establish relationships between the multiple functions of the shared right-of-way, incorporating the wide range of design concepts envisioned for The 5280 Loop. A project milestone will occur after 30% design completion and an unknown portion of the corridor will be brought to 100% design with remaining funds.

Minority and Women Business Enterprise Participation: The project goal of 15% must be met with certified participants as set forth in Section 28-65, D.R.M.C., or through the demonstration of a sufficient good faith effort under Section 28-62 D.R.M.C. For compliance with good faith requirements under Section 28-62(b), the M/WBE percentage solicitation level required for this project is 100%.

As the City’s best interests may appear, the Executive Director of Public Works reserves the right to waive informalities in, and to reject any or all, submittals.
