One Monument Square Redevelopment

On March 5, 2018, the City of Troy released a RFP seeking qualified applicants to lead a three-day public design charrette where participants will collaborate during a multi-day brainstorming and design program to develop a mutually agreed upon concept for the One Monument Square site.

The selected team will lead a three-day program open to all members of the community to create a public consensus for the site’s use and anticipated redevelopment – including construction details for the southward expansion of Riverfront Park and its connection to the business district on River Street.

The City is not advancing any predetermined concepts with the exception of a 50-foot deep esplanade along the Hudson River and connection from the esplanade to River Street. Developers interested in the redevelopment of the site are encouraged to attend.

What is a design charrette?

A charrette is an intensive planning and design session where residents, business owners, designers and other stakeholders collaborate on a vision for development. A design charrette provides a forum for ideas which offers a unique opportunity to give designers immediate feedback while creating mutual authorship among participants in the plan.

As advertised, responses for the Monument Square RFP are due before 4:00pm, Friday, March 30, 2018 at City Hall, located at 433 River Street, Troy, NY 12180.
