2. Introduction and Description of Project Site
PHDC is soliciting proposals from Applicants for the redevelopment of the Project Site. The Project Site is a
vacant 4.5-acre tract at the northwest corner of 84th Street and Lindbergh Boulevard and is owned by PRA.
Unlike much of its surroundings, the Project Site is outside of the 100-year flood plain. Given its higher
elevation, it has potential for many uses that are not permitted on the lands that surround it. The Cobbs Creek
Trail will soon be completed beside this parcel, and the City has plans to redesign the intersection to make it
more pedestrian friendly. The Project Site is in close proximity to natural and recreational amenities including
Eastwick Park and the Heinz Wildlife Refuge at the end of Lindbergh Boulevard (See Attachment I). There are
also planned streetscape improvements that are anticipated to be completed by the City (See Attachment J).
The Project Site is located within City Council District 2 and there are five (5) Registered Community
Organizations ("RCOs"):
1. Eastwick Community Network
2. 40th Ward Republicans
3. 40th Democratic Ward
4. Eastwick Friends & Neighbors Coalition
5. Paschall Unity Day Committee
In accordance with the City's Zoning Code, "[I]f there is more than one RCO whose registered boundaries
include the applicant's property, the district council member whose district includes the applicant's property
shall select one of those RCOs as the Coordinating RCO, or may select two or more RCOs whose registered
boundaries include the applicant's property to serve jointly as the Coordinating RCO."
