City officials said their goal is to issue a RFP with a response deadline of April 24. They are targeting start of construction for June 2022 and building occupancy in June 2023.

Early indications are that the project scope will call for a mixed-use development with housing and first-floor commercial use in the 47,920-square foot four-story building.

The property has seen multiple owners over the years with the city reacquiring the tract in 2012 and commissioning an environmental site assessment in 2014. An auction attempt in 2019 did not produce a sale.
