Eastern Market Comprehensive Neighborhood Framework Plan Request for Proposals

Date: 7/28/2017 - 8/30/2017

Type: RFPs / RFQs

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): Michigan

Description: The Economic Development Corporation of the City of Detroit and The Nature Conservancy invite experienced and qualified firms to submit proposals to develop a “Comprehensive Neighborhood Framework Plan” and “Centralized Stormwater Management Feature Master Plan” to build upon the success of the Eastern Market and surrounding area.

Eastern Market is a unique area that mixes a tourist attraction rich in history with robust outdoor retail activity, food-related industries and a growing residential component.

The goal of the framework plan is to leverage those unique assets to make Eastern Market the hub of food production and distribution for the Great Lakes Region while increasing neighborhood amenities, improving the quality of life for local residents, and expanding their opportunities for nearby employment.

The addition of new stormwater facilities and green space features will be an innovative way to add attractiveness and walkability to the District, creating a better quality of life now and in the future for Detroit residents and visitors.
