The Village issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to three firms interested in developing the site. The three developers – Renaissance Downtowns Urban Holdings, Urban Street Group LLC and Melody Square – were among five firms that responded to a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) the Village issued in January. Only firms that submitted the RFQ and met the qualifications were invited to submit a proposal.
The Mental Health Center RFP responses, linked above, are proposals only. The RFP responses in no way commit the Village to the plans, product mix or incentive requests presented. The purpose of the RFP process is to identify a development partner to maximize the MHC’s potential based on public open house comments, a MHC Committee’s direction (consisting of Trustee Younker, Trustee Glotz and staff) and SB Friedman’s recommendations. After a development team is selected, the Village Board and staff will work with the development team on the entitlement process and begin incentive negotiations.
Update [January 2019]: The Village Board has approved an Exclusive Negotiation Rights Agreement (ENRA) with Melody Square, LLC. SB Friedman, the Village’s retained consultant, recommended that the Village enter into the ENRA with Melody Square to advance the development and potential acquisition process for the TPMHC property. The agreement will allow the Village and developer to continue to explore acquisition options for the property for a period of six months. Also during this time period, the Village and Melody Square, LLC will continue to negotiate and discuss land use and incentive proposals. Any final agreements and/or zoning entitlements will eventually be reviewed by the Plan Commission and the Village Board. The purpose of the ENRA is to allow both parties to negotiate; it doesn’t commit the Village to the plans, product mix or incentive requests presented in Melody Square’s RFP.
