York's latest Northwest Triangle RFP yields three proposals
The York City Redevelopment Authority has received three submissions in response to its new request for proposals for the west side of the city's long-running Northwest Triangle redevelopment project, the authority said.
The deadline was 3 p.m. today and officials are looking over the responses and evaluating them, said Kevin Schreiber, the city's community and economic development director.
Officials put the entire residential and commercial project out for bid in late 2005 and selected in 2006 a joint venture by York Township-based Kinsley Construction Inc. and Maryland-based Enterprise Homes Inc., Schreiber previously said.
But the Kinsley/Enterprise venture later reformulated plans to include senior housing instead of market-rate offerings for its residential component, and the redevelopment authority did not feel it was compatible with the overall vision for the site, officials said last year.
The portion of the site that was the subject of the new RFP formerly was referred to as the residential side, though officials had said they would consider mixed-use proposals from developers this time around.
Kinsley has remained the commercial-side developer, Schreiber said.
The Northwest Triangle project began in 2003 and focuses on land around the bend of the Codorus Creek just west of North George Street.
Officials have put about $11 million of primarily federal, state and local money into the initiative to acquire and prepare the site for investment and development, according to authority documents.
