Land Bank Releases RFP for Redevelopment of Two Historic Skyscrapers in Downtown Toledo

Jul 21, 2022 | Jobs

The Lucas County Land Bank is pleased to release Phase 1 of a two-phase Request for Proposals to interested developers for the Four Corners Project.

The Land Bank and its partners, the City of Toledo, the Board of Lucas County Commissioners, the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, and ConnecToledo, desire the Four Corners Project to be a signature urban real estate redevelopment project that returns population density to this key junction of downtown Toledo, enhances the street level vibrancy at the corner of Madison Avenue and Huron Street, and catalyzes additional inclusive economic development in the surrounding area. We believe that this vision will only happen through a creative public-private partnership, and in that spirit, we look forward to working with interested developers to identify and support a future for these important buildings.

Phase 1 of this RFP process opened on July 18, 2022, and proposals from interested developers are due by August 22, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. ET. Proposals will be reviewed and up to five developers will be shortlisted and invited to participate in Phase 2 as early as September 13, 2022. Complete details of the process and all relevant documents can be found using the link below.
