Developers Wanted: City Unveils Cyber Monday Opportunities

Requests for proposals, notice of funding availability issued for projects throughout Cincinnati

Today the City of Cincinnati Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) announced four development opportunities, ranging from the adaptive reuse of vacant buildings, development on an existing surface parking lot and the announcement of the 2016 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA).

DCED will host a pre-solicitation event on Dec. 9, 2016 from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. to discuss with interested parties more details on the three upcoming development projects. Learn more and register here.
 
The projects were announced as part of Cyber Monday, the beginning of the online holiday shopping season.
 
Below, you will find more information about those projects to be presented, two of which are requests for proposals (RFPs) and the third being a Notice of Funding Availability:
 
Shillito’s West RFP [Adaptive reuse/development]: This site is located at 137 West Seventh Street in the City’s Central Business District. The 400,000-square-foot building consists of an adjoining ten-story and a six-story vacant structure on approximately 0.946 acres. View the fact sheet here.
 
Ninth and Plum Street Redevelopment Site RFP [Adaptive reuse/development]: The redevelopment site at the northwest corner of Ninth and Plum streets in the Central Business District is approximately 0.768 acres and consists of a 98-space public surface parking lot and a 17,920-square-foot building. View the fact sheet here.
 
NOFA [Residential]: The City will also announce the 2016 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA), a process to provide stimulus for housing development. The City’s NOFA seeks exceptional homeownership, rental and infrastructure projects that make positive and visible impacts throughout Cincinnati’s 52 neighborhoods. Applications are currently available, and a pre-submission meeting is scheduled for Jan. 13, 2017. Applications are due March 17, 2017.
Approximately $6.5 million in funds will be allocated for the 2016 NOFA.

Projects in any of Cincinnati’s 52 neighborhoods qualify for NOFA funding; however, the CoreFour targeted neighborhoods do receive scoring priority. CoreFour seeks to strategically align City funds with ongoing neighborhood development plans and efforts from public and private partners. View the fact sheet here.
