Mayor Noble Announces Request for Qualifications for Three City-owned Properties
Developers Conference to be held this Thursday
Mayor Steve Noble is pleased to announce the release of a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for three separate parcels owned by the City of Kingston.
The parcels are identified in the RFQ as the "Former Uptown Parking Garage Site" (21 North Front St. and Odd Side of Schwenk Drive, SBL# 48.80-1-26); "North Front Street Parking Lot, North Side" (65-77 North Front St., SBL #48.314-2-16); and "North Front Street Parking Lot, South Side" (72-82 North Front St., SBL # 48.330-3-3(4)(5); 178 Green St., SBL #48.330-3-29; 69-71 Crown St., SBL #48.330-3-9.)
The City is seeking a highly qualified developer to propose signature mixed-use project(s) which will enhance and complement the current structures and use patterns existent in the neighborhood. The City is seeking responses which will enhance the Uptown Business District's viability through the expansion of housing/lodging and commercial/retail opportunities. The proposals should reflect the administration's vision for a vibrant urban project which creates a sense of place sufficient to knit the proposed project with the surround historic district and nearby historic properties. The City will consider these parcels separately or jointly.
A Developers Conference has been scheduled for this Thursday, September 15, 2016 at 1:00pm at 21 North Front St.
The RFQ is due to the Purchasing Office at City Hall on October 27, 2016 at 11:00am.
