DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT RFP – RFP-CED17-DD
I. RFP PROCESS
A. Introduction
The City of Phoenix (City) Community and Economic Development Department
(CEDD) invites proposals for the opportunity to privately develop, finance,
construct, and manage urban and mixed-use development and redevelopment
projects on private property within the Downtown Redevelopment Area. Located
within the City’s single Central Business District, the Downtown Redevelopment
Area is generally bounded by 7th Avenue and 7th Street from McDowell Road to
Lincoln Street.
This RFP is intended to reduce the time needed for the private sector to present
realistic, buildable, and appropriate urban and mixed-use development and
streamline the request for City assistance on these proposals. Therefore, a
proposer may submit its proposal at any time prior to the final deadline listed on
page one.
B. Proposer Questions and Notification
Proposers are advised to read this RFP in its entirety. Failure to read and/or
understand any portion of this RFP shall not be cause for waiver of any portion of
the RFP or subsequent agreement. All questions about this RFP must be
submitted in writing to procurement.request.ced@phoenix.gov. Please list the
name of this RFP in the subject line when submitting questions. All written
questions will be responded to in writing and posted at
phoenix.gov/solicitations/1116.
C. Changes to the RFP
Changes to this RFP will be in writing as an addendum and posted at
phoenix.gov/solicitations/1116. The City shall not be responsible for any oral
instructions given by any City employee, consultant, or official regarding RFP
specifications, instructions, or documents. Proposers are responsible for obtaining
all information posted on the website regarding this RFP.
II. BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY
A. Downtown Phoenix
Downtown Phoenix is the financial, government and legal center of Arizona and
home to the three largest banks in the state, as well as the Arizona State University
Downtown Campus. The Downtown Core has more than eight million square feet
(SF) of private office space, most of which is located a few short blocks from Valley
Metro light rail stations. Currently, approximately 4,000 businesses employ 61,500
employees in the Downtown area. The Downtown Core has experienced
significant renewal, including a multifamily market that has expanded significantly
as people seek to live in urban environments and more than $5 billion in public and

private capital investments over the past decade. A broader description of Phoenix
and Downtown Phoenix, including major employment, government, biomedical
research, retail, entertainment, hospitality and residential uses, as well as recent
development activity, is posted on the City’s website.
Proposers should research applicable Planning and Zoning Information as well as
Codes, Ordinances, Standards and Interpretations prior to submitting their
proposals.
B. Desired Projects
This Section details the “Desired Projects” that will result from successful
proposals to this RFP and lists specific considerations that should be addressed
in each proposal. Proposers should review all referenced materials.
The Desired Project should:
1. Create an appropriately dense, mixed-use redevelopment project that
capitalizes on a prominent urban location. The innovative, high-quality design
should create functional and appropriate transitions to adjacent buildings.
2. Create enhanced pedestrian-oriented amenities promoting walkability as well
as pedestrian and bicycle paths and, if applicable, direct connections to
adjacent bus and light rail transit stops. Transit-oriented development (TOD)
concepts should be a focus, assuring the proposed development provides a
mix of compatible and complementary land uses that facilitate urban living and
are supportive of transit. These uses may include office, commercial/retail,
restaurant, residential, structured parking, civic space or other compatible
urban uses.
3. Be consistent with the City Council-approved Downtown Phoenix: A Strategic
Vision and Blue Print for the Future and Progress Update, the Downtown
Code, and all other applicable regulations, guidelines and adopted plans,
including the Complete Streets Program, the Comprehensive Bicycle Master
Plan, the Tree and Shade Master Plan, and the Accessibility Requirements
for Residential Occupancies Guideline.
4. Incorporate sustainability elements into the design, construction, and
maintenance of the proposed development. A wide range of sustainability
programs and concepts can be found at phoenix.gov/sustainability and new
development sustainability-related design elements are outlined in the
Downtown Code, Sections 1223-1224.
5. Be completed within the shortest time frame possible with as little adverse
impact as possible to residents and nearby businesses during the construction
stage of the development.

6. Be supported by the community and adjacent neighborhood(s). There are
several neighborhood and community organizations in downtown Phoenix. A
list of active neighborhood and community groups is available online at
http://jphxprd.phoenix.gov/NSDAssoc/search-alpha-init.do.
C. Return to the City
In its proposal, each proposer shall detail its proposed return to the City. The
return to the City is the combined value of proposed payments to the City
(financial return) and other tangible public benefits, which may include one or
more of the following: net new jobs, business opportunities, civic space,
community amenities, bicycle facilities, shared public parking, workforce housing,
pet friendly spaces, and/or public art.
Proposals should request minimal City assistance and provide maximum return to
the City. Although the City reserves the right to participate in projects that create
a significant amount of public benefit, such as public infrastructure beyond what
would be necessary for the proposed development, there is currently no
guaranteed City funding for any development resulting from this RFP.
D. Government Property Lease Excise Tax
Any proposer requesting assistance in the form of Government Property Lease
Excise Tax (GPLET) treatment should reference Arizona Revised Statutes Title 42
(§42-6201 through 42-6210) and include elements such as structured parking,
maximum lot coverage, and if residential, high density, in its proposal.
III. PROPOSAL INSTRUCTIONS
A. Delivery of Proposals
Each proposer must submit the following in a sealed package marked with the
proposer’s name and the name of this RFP:
1 original proposal,
5 color copies of the proposal, and
1 e-copy of the proposal in native format on a flash drive or CD.
Proposals must be submitted to the address listed on page 1. Proposals
received after the final deadline will be disqualified as non-responsive.
B. Form of Proposals
Proposals shall conform to the following format. Proposals that are incomplete;
conditional; obscure; or that contain additions not requested, changes or
exceptions to material provisions or requirements of this RFP; or irregularities of
any kind, are subject to disqualification.
