Santa Fe issues request for midtown campus redevelopment proposals
The city of Santa Fe issued a request for proposals Tuesday to create a plan for redevelopment of the midtown campus property on St. Michael’s Drive.
The so-called RFP to economic analysis and planning professionals is the first of three involving the city-owned 66.55-acre site of the defunct Santa Fe University of Art and Design, which city officials see as a tremendous economic development opportunity.
The city plans to request proposals later this year for community engagement and site redevelopment.
“The city envisions a new, vibrant, people-oriented, mixed-use district,” Matt Brown, the city’s economic development director, said in a statement.
For the first RFP, bidders “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,” city documents state.
The request is available at santafenm.gov/bids_rfps.
