The Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA) is seeking redevelopers and/or redevelopment teams (“redeveloper”) for 604 Liberty Avenue (“Site”) in the Central Business District (“Downtown”) of the City of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The goal of this RFP is to select a redeveloper to complete a unique small scale redevelopment. Responses that include demolition will not be considered.
This property is within the primary boundary of the Downtown Façade Restoration Program.
The Site at 604 Liberty Avenue is a three-story brick building with a basement. It is an irregular-shaped, triangular building. Each floor is 625 square feet. The first floor has a front storeroom. The upper floors are not accessible from the outside. The building has been vacant for approximately 4 years and is in need of renovation.
The Site is located within a Business Improvement District (BID). The BID was created by City Council in 1997 and renewed for a third, five-year term in May 2011 at the request of the Downtown property owners.
Property owners within the BID agree to assess themselves to pay for services, provided by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP), that directly benefit Downtown, such as cleaning, safety, marketing, housing, and transportation initiatives. The BID includes 100 blocks of Downtown. More than 4,000 businesses and 350 property owners are located within the BID area.
