Request for Proposals
Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority
Submittal Deadline: 04/30/2013
The Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority (“PRA”) is pleased to announce its solicitation of proposals from experienced developers to purchase and redevelop a 24,000 square foot site near Fairmount Park and St. Joseph’s University. The property, located at 2001-11 N. 54th Street, contains the former Wynne Ballroom. Proposals that call for complete or partial demolition, as well as those that intend to rehabilitate the existing structure, will be accepted. The site is well served by transit (both bus and regional rail) and contains many exciting possibilities due to its proximity to the University, City Line Avenue, and the park’s many attractions, as well as its location within the stable Wynnefield neighborhood.
The Request for Proposals (“RFP”), including Exhibit A, is available for direct download at http://www.phila.gov/pra/pdfs/WynneRFPfinalwExhibit.pdf. Please email Leigh.Jones@pra.phila.gov if you would like to obtain the remaining Exhibits and to have your name added to the interested parties list for this RFP.
There will be a pre-submission conference on Wednesday, February 20th to answer any questions from potential respondents and to tour the building. Proposals are due by 4 pm on April 30.
