Midtown Santa Fe - Economic Analysis and Urban Planning
See Bid/RFP documents for additional submission details.
1.A PROJECT INTRODUCTION
The City of Santa Fe (“City”, “Client”) is issuing this Request for Proposals (“RFP”) to urban
planning firms and economic analysis firms (“Planning Team”, “Respondent”), with the
objective of procuring a single qualified Planning Team, i.e. a single Respondent. The Planning
Team must have the capacity in economic analysis and urban planning on large-scale,
public/private partnership, real estate development projects to analyze, advice, and participate
in creating a feasible and implementable development framework for the redevelopment of the
Midtown Property in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The City is considering various options for the disposition and development of the Midtown
Property, a 64.22-acre site (“Midtown Property”, “Site”) with approximately 32 existing
buildings that have strong reuse potential, and significant open space that present viable
opportunities for new residential and mixed-use development. The Midtown Property presents
an unprecedented public/private opportunity to address the City’s equitable and sustainable
development objectives, primarily because of: (1) the property’s prime central midtown
location within the Midtown LINC District, an Opportunity Zone; (2) some of the existing
buildings are ready for adaptive reuse; and, (3) a high level of private interest in developing and
leasing parcels at the Site.
