NOTICE OF REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR DEVELOPER / INVESTOR / OPERATOR FOR MIRAMAR TOWN CENTER
The City of Miramar (the “City”) is seeking Proposals from qualified real estate builders/developers that have the expertise, experience and resources (financial and operational) to:
Purchase or ground lease, finance, construct and operate a development on an approximately 3.742-acre paved City-owned property within the Miramar Town Center (“MTC”) known as Block 2. The parcel is generally bound by Red Road to the south, Main Street to the east, City Hall Promenade to the north and Civic Center Place to the west (the “Property” or “Block 2 Property”). The parcel is zoned as Traditional Neighborhood Development (“TND”) district, which allows mixed use development. The Property is more particularly described in Exhibit “A” attached hereto. Block 2 is the final remaining vacant block available for development within the 54-acre Miramar Town Center.
As part of any Proposal, the City will also evaluate offers for a long-term lease for existing City-owned ground level prime retail shell space totaling approximately 14,000 square feet (12,000 gross leasable area) located within the recently constructed Miramar Police Headquarters. The 14,000 square feet is situated on the opposing block (Block 3) to the north of the Block 2 Property (the “Shell Space”). The Shell Space is more specifically described in Exhibit “B”. The Shell Space and Block 2 Property are separated by City Hall Promenade, which is envisioned to serve as the main double-sided retail and entertainment corridor for Miramar Town Center that connects the two book-end plazas; namely, City Hall Plaza and Market Square. A proposal for the long term lease of the 14,000 square feet of shell space is at the option of the proposer and is not a requirement of this RFP although the City will give added weight to Proposals which include the 14,000 square Block 3 Shell Space.
The City’s intent in the sale or lease of the Block 2 Property and lease of the Block 3 Shell Space is to engage a developer or development team that can successfully finalize development of these components with an optimal mix of uses (e.g. retail, entertainment, office, residential, and/or hospitality). Additionally, the successful developer must incorporate a comprehensive programming/operations/management and retail recruitment strategy that will stimulate the identity of Town Center, its sense of place, and capacity to draw increased visitor traffic.
Responsive Proposals must demonstrate: (1) successful experience and expertise in the development and operation of retail and/or entertainment and/or office and/or residential and/or hospitality within mixed use environments such as MTC; (2) site planning and architectural sensitivity to the proposed site, adjacent buildings and surrounding development. (3) competitive price and terms for the acquisition or long term land lease of the Block 2 property, and the financial terms for a long term land lease of the Shell Space; and, 4.) satisfactory financial commitment, resources and references.
In addition to experience and financial considerations, Proposals shall address planning, initial architectural design concepts, parking, proposed schedule and project implementation, as well as post-construction management, operating and programming strategies.
