RFP: Here’s your chance to redevelop vacant properties in a strategic Detroit, Michigan neighborhood that’s being revitalized

On September 16, 2022 in Michigan, the City of Detroit’s Housing & Revitalization Department (“HRD”) published a Request For Proposals (RFP) seeking bids from qualified organizations or individuals to develop vacant, city-owned property which is located near the intersection of W Warren & Southfield Rd on Archdale Street.

Currently vacant, this site yields tremendous potential as it falls within Warrendale – Cody Rouge Strategic Planning Area along a corridor that has millions invested through philanthropic and municipal funding planned from 2022 to 2025.

The site, located on Archdale just south of former Ruddiman School, close to W. Warren Avenue & Southfield Rd. is just a short walk to the W. Warren Avenue streetscape improvements currently underway. Nearby neighborhoods include the Warren Avenue Community and the Warrendale neighborhood.

The parcel is zoned R1 and is approximately 1.5 acres. The subject property has the potential for mixed use, multi-family, cooperative/communal housing, as well as senior housing with plenty of development space for parking.

It is probable that the subject site will require a zoning classification change (rezoning) to permit for desired uses. The City will assist the selected developer through the entitlement process as necessary.

Bids Due: November 18, 2022 at 5:00pm EST
