The chance to vision and design a prime site in downtown Vancouver, Washington is now open to developers.
The Vancouver City Center Redevelopment Authority (CCRA) is seeking a development team for the 6.4-acre city-owned “Waterfront Gateway” site that will become a key part of the gateway to the riverfront, which has emerged as a desirable destination for businesses, residents and visitors.
The CCRA issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) on March 31.
The site is strategically located between two important centers of redevelopment activity – the Columbia River waterfront and historic downtown core. It represents one of the largest remaining undeveloped contiguous properties in the downtown area and is a premier development opportunity for the region. The site is adjacent to Vancouver City Hall and the Vancouver Convention Center/Hilton Hotel.
The CCRA is seeking teams composed of a developer and designer capable of both designing and building office, commercial, retail and housing in a multi-story mixed-use environment. The opportunity is rooted in a community vision developed over the last two years that offers initial ideas and design considerations for the site, including a public parking garage and potential future expansion of the convention center.
Vancouver is the second largest city in the Portland metro area, with a population of 190,000 and a strong entrepreneurial spirit. The city is nationally recognized for its beautiful setting, business friendly attitude, diverse mix of people and industries, and livability.
Responses to the RFQ are due by 3 p.m. June 29, 2021.
