Requests for Interest (RFI)
The RFI for Old City Hall is for reference only as the deadline for responding to it was October 30, 2015.
Adaptive Reuse of Old City Hall in Downtown Tacoma Washington
The City of Tacoma, Washington invites you to respond to a Request for Interest (RFI) regarding the adaptive reuse of Old City Hall built in 1892 located at 625 South Commerce Street into a high quality development that contributes to the vitality of the Old City Hall District, which served as the city’s early governmental, commercial and entertainment center from 1886 through the 1920s. Substantial reinvestment is underway in this area, including a $15 million renovation of the former Winthrop Hotel into housing and a planned $22 million restoration of the Elks Temple into a new McMenamins entertainment venue projected to commence in spring 2016 and be completed within one year.
It is the City’s preference to attract uses that create synergy with surrounding development, maximize tax revenues, recoup its investment, result in new jobs and draw pedestrian traffic to the area. Hotels or offices that support companies/organizations with financial strength and growth potential are strongly preferred. Street-level, pedestrian-friendly uses, such as restaurants and retail venues, are highly desirable. Market rate residential development will also be considered.
