RFP: Redeveloper wanted for 40,000 sq. ft. historic industrial building + 3 acres (WI)

The Community Development Authority (CDA) of the City of West Allis, Wisconsin is soliciting proposals for a unique opportunity that includes the renovation of a 40,000 sq. ft. historic industrial building determined to be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places and redevelopment of adjacent 3.1-acres of land near the Six Points Farmers Market Redevelopment Area.

The main goal for the project is the historic preservation and improvement of the 6771 W. National Avenue building by returning the glass appearance of the property and attracting a creative use.

Secondarily, the CDA would like to evaluate how the balance of the 4.7-acre collection of sites could be used to complement the proposed re-use of the 6771 Building. This can be done by showing conceptual site plans with complementary uses or a vision for overall development.

Located adjacent to the Six Point Farmers Market Redevelopment area, the building at 6771 W. National Avenue is a hidden gem covered in a shell of white steel siding. Built between 1910-1926, the building and site were part of the former Kearney and Trecker factory site. The building includes original brick, steel
structure, and period industrial shop windows.

Proposals must be received by the CDA by Friday, June 14, 2019, no later than 4:00 p.m. CDT.
If sending through mail, submissions must include one (1) original copy, and one (1) electronic copy (CD, DVD, or flash drive).

Please send proposals to:
Community Development Authority of the City of West Allis
Development Department
Attn: Patrick Schloss
7525 W. Greenfield Avenue, Rm. 220
West Allis, WI 53214
OR Email to: pschloss@westalliswi.gov
