Responses for the One Monument Square RFP were due on Friday, January 20 at City Hall. Two submissions were received.

An advisory group consisting of city staff, residents and property owners has been established to review the proposals and is scheduled to meet during the next several weeks, although additional meetings and interviews may be required. After completion of the review process, a preferred development team will be selected. Following this selection, the team will meet with key city staff from involved departments to ensure that the developer and the City are in agreement on key development issues.

Following completion of negotiations between the administration and the selected developer, a contract agreement will be presented to the City Council for their consideration and approval.
