The City of Wichita has issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to develop approximately 7.2 acres adjacent to the new Advance Learning Library at McLean and Sycamore and the River Vista apartment development.
“It is an exciting time for downtown Wichita and the Delano district with numerous development projects rising up in these areas,” said Scot Rigby, Assistant City Manager and Development Services Director. ”These two adjacent properties, bounded by more than $70 million dollars in private/public investment, provide a unique opportunity for development teams to propose mixed use projects that build upon those investments and excitement.”
The City is marketing two parcels for redevelopment in an area considered a catalyst site for Downtown and the Arkansas River, according to Project Downtown, Master Plan for Wichita. The RFQ provides the opportunity to develop one or both parcels. The RFQ is designed to provide a multi-story, mixed-use development consistent with the vision of Project Downtown and nearby Delano district, including providing a public gathering space and public greenway in the former railroad corridor.
RFQs are being mailed to local and regional developers and brokers. Please direct questions to Scot Rigby at firstname.lastname@example.org or (316) 268-4524. The RFQ is available online at Wichita.gov/RFQ
