The City of Chandler opened a Request for Information (RFI) today for the downtown property located directly west of Chandler City Hall known as Site 6. This site in the city’s urban core is considered a catalyst for the next stage of development in downtown Chandler.
The RFI is the first of two phases, asking for expressions of interest from development firms with a solid track record of true mixed-use development. The City anticipates a short list to be created from the initial RFI process to respond in a second phase to an RFP.
Downtown Chandler is one of five strong employment corridors in Chandler, with a low vacancy rate that is hampering further growth of the area.
“We believe the market is ripe for this type of development,” said Teri Killgore, City of Chandler Downtown Redevelopment Manager. “The City of Chandler has invested significantly in this area with great success, and we feel that it’s an excellent time for private development to bring an entertainment component, office space and additional retail to Downtown.”
The ultimate development is expected to be a signature project in Downtown to include high-quality architectural and urban design features. The site is 4.25 acres, and has the advantage of being vacant, and entirely owned by the City.
