Description

Specifications include, but are not limited to: This 1.15-acre city-owned property abuts NE 2nd Street to the north, NE 1st Street to the south, NE 1st Avenue to the east, and the historic seven-story Sovereign Building to the west across N. Magnolia Avenue. The property is currently used as a surface parking lot with no buildings. Historically, this was the site of the city’s main post office and was a primary generator of activity for most surrounding development. The designated land use is High Intensity/Central Core with a minimum density of 12 units per acre or 0.20 FAR and a maximum density of 60 dwelling units per acre or 8.0 FAR. The zoning is currently Governmental Use (GU) and would be rezoned by the city if the property was to be used for nongovernmental purposes. The total square footage of the site is approximately 50,094. The site is located in the parking exempt zone. If a proposer wishes to provide onsite parking, standard parking dimensions are 9.5 wide by 19 feet in depth. Slight reduction of those dimensions is possible based upon other design criteria which will be determined at site review as necessary. The property is located in the Downtown CRA. An appraisal report for this property is attached as Exhibit M – Concord Lot Appraisal. The City is seeking sustainable mixed use development for this parcel to include any combination of the following preferred mixed uses: retail, residential, restaurant, office, entertainment, or cultural. If allowable, the inclusion of an appropriately scaled green space element is preferred. As indicated above, although this parcel is in a parking exempt zone proposers of the site should also seriously consider the need for onsite structured or surface parking. Development of this site will displace much current parking use and create additional pressure for even more parking. As a mixed-use product, proposers should carefully consider how the development will contribute and increase connection and associated draw to and from the evolving nearby downtown core, and the geographical areas and many public improvements that border Midtown in all directions. Proposers should carefully consider how the development will contribute to a vibrant street life and a pedestrian oriented public realm with a variety of amenities. Each building should be aesthetically attractive and provide an accessible, safe environment.
