Bids Sought For 62 More Baltimore Properties in Redevelopment Zone

Another request for bids has hit the public as Baltimore seeks developers for 62 more properties. This time it is 56 vacant rowhomes and 6 other vacant properties on the eastern edge of a site in the Middle East neighborhood. This initiative is part of a major city effort since 2002 to develop an 88 acre site just north of Johns Hopkins. Bids are being requested by East Baltimore Development Inc. (EBDI), a non-profit entity formed by the city back when the efforts began.

The project is currently known as the Madeira Street Project made up of the 62 contiguous properties. It’s part of the mentioned EBDI overall 88 acre project area that is past of a master plan to revitalize the zone. The overall plan includes 1,600 units of mixed income housing, 1.5 million sq. ft. of commercial laboratory and office space, 120,000 sq. ft. of retail, a hotel, parks & open space and several new schools. It’s no surprise about the master plan’s make-up, the entire project is designed to feed off its proximity to the Johns Hopkins campus and their associated organizations.

There’s a Pre-Proposal Info Session and Site Visit being held on April 14, 2017 at 11am. Location is the EBDI offices at 1731 E. Chase Street in Baltimore. Final proposals are due to June 30, 2017.

The organization’s RFP is included here and includes the roster of property addresses up for bid. Take a look!
