Development Opportunity in Downtown Tampa, Florida
Request for Developer Qualifications
Solicitation NO: RFQ-2005-25ORED
The Housing Authority of the City of Tampa, also known as the Tampa
Housing Authority ("THA"), in a collaborative effort with the
Tampa, Hillsborough County, and the residents of Central Park
Village, is seeking the services of a development team to plan and
redevelop a public housing community known as Central Park Village.
Central Park Village is sited on 28 acres and consists of 484 units
of multi-family public housing built in the 1950s. It borders one of
the gateways to downtown Tampa, forms part of a culturally and
historically significant African-American neighborhood and, together
with other City-owned lots in the area, vacant or under-utilized
parcels adjacent and nearby, represents one of the most interesting
parcels of developable land in Tampa. Additionally, it rests adjacent
to the current downtown CBD and forms part of the area between
downtown, the Channelside District and Historic Ybor City, all of
which are experiencing tremendous growth and development. Given the
current demographics, growth patterns and population increases for
the City of Tampa and Hillsborough County, Central Park Village
arguably represents the most significant redevelopment undertaking
for Tampa in the coming decades.
Complete details of the requirements are contained in the official
Request for Qualifications package. Interested developers may
request a copy of the official request for qualifications, on or
after April 11, 2005, by contacting the THA Contracting Office at
813/253-0551 ext. 317 or by visiting the contracting offices located
at 808 North Rome Avenue, Tampa, Florida 33606.
The deadline for submitting responses is 2:00 PM (prevailing Tampa
time) on May 16, 2005. The deadline for written questions is 2:00 pm
(prevailing Tampa time) on April 21, 2005.
