The City of Marion and Community Savings Bank are partnering to facilitate the redevelopment of the vacant 1204 7th Avenue property in Marion.
The bank acquired the site as a voluntary foreclosure after a building project was only partially completed. Foundations and supporting infrastructure were installed for a three story mixed use building project that had identified retail/restaurant use on the main level and housing on the upper levels. Building plans were previously reviewed and approved by the City of Marion for the three story structure.
The City of Marion is acting in concert with the bank to bring about the completion of the building project that is consistent with community goals, adopted development plans and ordinances, and is an asset to the Marion Uptown District.
The ideal firm must demonstrate the technical experience, financial strength, and proven ability to effectively redevelop the property; mindful of the input gathered from community members and interested in enhancing the fully developed neighborhood.
A copy of the Request for Proposals can be obtained by clicking on Public Notices at www.cityofmarion.org.
All qualified developers are invited to submit proposals; however, all developers are encouraged to arrange a walk-through of the building site prior to the deadline for submitting proposals.
Responses are due by Tuesday, April 30, 2019.
