RFP for Sale and Development of Boston Avenue Lots

Post Date:08/04/2017 10:40 am
The City of Longmont has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the for sale and development of two prime sites just south of downtown, southeast of the intersection of Main Street/Highway 287 and Boston Avenue. The sites consist of two lots adjacent to one another and separated by an undeveloped South Kimbark Street right of way along Boston Avenue, a new public street connecting Main Street and Martin Street. One lot is 0.86 acres in size and includes nearly 80 feet of street frontage along Main Street and 313 feet of street frontage along the newly constructed Boston Avenue. The second lot is 0.52 acres in size and has nearly 190 feet of street frontage along the newly constructed Boston Avenue. Both lots are nearly rectangular in shape.

The lots are remnant property from recent City construction of the new Boston Avenue extension connecting Main Street and Martin Street. Because the lots are remnant parcels with no expected City use, the City has declared the lots to be surplus to its municipal needs and desires to sell the lots. The City is interested in seeing them developed with uses consistent with the vision outlined in the City Comprehensive Plan (Envision Longmont) and adopted plans of the area – the 1st and Main Station Transit & Revitalization Plan and the Southeast Longmont Urban Renewal Plan.

Both lots are zoned Mixed Use (MU), which allows for a wide range of uses, including office, retail, services, high‐density residential and other commercial uses. The lots are located near Main Street/Highway 287 with average annual daily traffic count of 32,000 (2015) on South Main Street north of Ken Pratt Boulevard, which is just south of the subject lots.

If you are interested in receiving a copy of the RFP please contact City of Longmont Redevelopment Manager David Starnes at [email protected]. Find more information about Longmont Redevelopment and Revitalization here.

Complete proposals must be received by 3:00 pm via email on October 11, 2017.
