Request for Proposals -
Premiere Transit-Oriented Development Opportunity
on a Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee-owned parcel in the heart of Downtown Milwaukee
The Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee is excited to present this Request for Proposals for an unprecedented transit-oriented development opportunity in the City of Milwaukee and one of the most unique transit-oriented development opportunities in the Midwest. The approximately 2-acre parcel at 4th/Wisconsin will be located on both the proposed Milwaukee Streetcar route and Bus Rapid Transit line. This high visibility and high traffic site is situated directly across the street from Wisconsin's main convention center, blocks from the Marquette University campus and centrally-located among significant redevelopment efforts in thriving downtown Milwaukee.
Downtown Milwaukee is undergoing an extraordinary renaissance with nearly $3 billion in projects completed since 2005, $1 billion under construction and another $1.3 billion in advanced planning stages. In the greater downtown area, over 9,500 housing units have been added since 2004 and over 1,300 hotel rooms have been added since 2008. As a result of this extraordinary investment and substantial growth, downtown Milwaukee now has 26,000 residents, 83,000 daily workers and over 6 million annual visitors.
Development concepts should capitalize on this unique site and help continue the momentum in downtown Milwaukee. Proposals will be accepted beginning September 30, 2016
