RFP: Florida city seeks P3 for 6.5 acres to create new city hall and revitalize downtown

Notice is given that the City of Dania Beach, Florida, through Colliers International South Florida, is currently soliciting proposals from qualified, experienced development firms to re-develop the approximately six and one half (6.5) acres City Center Site.

The City is willing to contribute the site as part of an overall Public Private Partnership (“P3”) plan. The Site was recently appraised at $12,310,000. The site currently consists of the existing City Hall Building of approximately 29,000 SF together with a 440 space parking structure that is able to be expanded to 660 spaces by adding two floors.

The City is seeking to create a new City Hall and commercial complex as part of an overall vision to stimulate development in the City’s “Urban Core”.

In addition to the existing City Hall, which would be demolished as part of the plan, and rebuilt on the site, the property houses an existing fire station, and two small historic buildings, all of which the City believes can be relocated to other City owned property leaving the majority of the site available for a complete redevelopment. The existing parking structure can be utilized to serve the new City Center development. The County Library can stay as-is or be rebuilt on site as part of a government campus.

The City Center site is located a block west of the intersection of Dania Beach Boulevard and Federal Hwy (US1). The City is seeking proposals for a “Re-imagined City Center” by qualified developer(s). The intent of the City is to encourage private developers to use their entrepreneurial skills and financial resources to design and construct a variety of needed housing, retail, restaurant, and entertainment venues and possible office space. The City believes that a new City Center would create and stimulate a broader redevelopment of the entire “Downtown” Area and contribute to the Renaissance of Dania Beach. Under the City’s current City Center (CC) zoning regulations, using all available performance-based density bonuses and a maximum
allowable building height of 14 stories, and leaving the existing parking structure in place, the site could technically accommodate approximately 1.4 Million square feet of new building space. This could allow a maximum residential development density of over 950 units to be designed and built in phases.

A new City Center Redevelopment should:
1) Jumpstart and stimulate redevelopment of the City’s Urban Core.
2) Provide an open canvas to developers for a multi-year phased development plan.
3) Significantly advance the City’s image and brand identity with a focus on sustainability.
4) Advance the City’s region-wide competitive position.
5) Address broader community and economic development needs and cultivate art and culture.
