The Colorado Springs Airport released a request for proposals to solicit responses from interested, qualified business and industrial park master developers. The site, which is located at the south end of the airport, encompasses approximately 900 acres and is slated for commercial development. Responses are due by 4 p.m. Sept. 3.
The RFP is available at www.rockymountainbidsystem.com and is also posted on the airport’s website at www.flycos.com. Click on the quick link for “Master Development Opportunities” and select “RFP for Master Developer.”
An optional pre-proposal meeting will take place at 2 p.m. Aug. 20 in Conference Room B, which is located on the third floor of the airport terminal. Respondents who are unable to attend the pre-proposal meeting are encouraged to provide contact information (including name, mailing address, e-mail address and fax number) so that any addendums resulting from the pre-proposal meeting may be provided.
Respondents are encouraged to submit information for best and highest use development of the site. The City prefers a development plan that incorporates the synergy of aviation and business development for the scope of land. Additionally, responses shall incorporate the existing development into the plan to allow for consistent and complimentary development of adjacent parcels.
The City will review all responses and may select one or more to enter into possible negotiations for a Master Development Agreement. The City, at its discretion, reserves the right to accept any response or any part or parts thereof and to reject any or all responses. Respondents are encouraged to be creative in providing a conceptual development plan, while complying with the planned commercial uses of the land and market opportunities.
