Proposals sought to redevelop vacant Globeville building into a viable neighborhood amenity
The Denver Office of Economic Development (OED) and Denver’s Real Estate Division in the Department of Finance are seeking a non-profit partner(s) to purchase, redevelop and operate a City-owned property with a structure located at 4400 Lincoln Street, which includes a parking lot across the alley, as a viable neighborhood amenity for residents of Globeville and surrounding neighborhoods. A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) will be available beginning Monday, February 25, 2019, at 4 p.m., at Denvergov.org/oed.
The building is located on the northeast corner of Lincoln Street and 44th Avenue in the Globeville neighborhood. Redevelopment and adaptive reuse of the property must take into account the neighborhood character and the needs of neighborhood residents. Preferred use for the redeveloped parcel is a multi-purpose community-oriented facility; however, the City will entertain other reasonable proposals for a public facility that positively impacts the neighborhood. Preference will be given to proposals that incorporate some or all of the original building design. Consideration must also be given to the impact of the redeveloped property on neighborhood traffic patterns and logistics such as parking.
A tour of the building, followed by a facilitated discussion with the Globeville community and a pre-bid meeting will be held on Monday, February 25, 2019, at 3:30 p.m. in the auditorium of Garden Place Academy, 4425 Lincoln St. Attendance at the pre-bid meeting is encouraged but not mandatory. Pre-bid meeting materials will be made available at Denvergov.org/oed after the meeting.
Additional information will be detailed in the RFQ. The deadline to submit RFQ entries is Monday, April 8, 2019.
