Request for Development Proposals: 825 N Main Street, Glen Ellyn, Illinois
The Village of Glen Ellyn, Illinois is seeking proposals from interested parties for the purchase and redevelopment of property located at the southeast corner of St. Charles Road and Main Street known as 825 N. Main Street. The Village is open to considering a wide range of site designs, users and purchase options and is hopeful that the development of the property will spur reinvestment and development elsewhere at the intersection. The ideal redevelopment will consist of a commercial user or users.
The purpose of this RFP is to release the essential development information for the site. The Village will accept proposals in accordance with the RFP and will review each development submission received in order to ultimately select a “Developer of Record” that the Village determines to be the best suited for the project based on the objectives of this request.
The Village of Glen Ellyn is located approximately 25 miles west of Chicago and has a population of 27,400. The property at 825 N. Main Street is located at the northern gateway to the Village in the heart of the Historic Stacy’s Corners intersection of St. Charles Road and N. Main Street, which has an average daily traffic volume of 20,400 vehicles. The site is comprised of three lots totaling 1.35 acres. There is an additional property to the south at 817 N. Main Street and it is the Village’s hope that a developer will be able to successfully purchase and redevelop both 817 and 825 N. Main Street as a single project. The Village has had preliminary discussions with the property owner of the 817 N. Main Street property and he seems open to the potential sale of the property.
A pre-proposal meeting for interested developers will be held on Friday, July 6, 2012 at 2:00pm in the Galligan Boardroom. The Galligan Boardroom is located on the third floor of the Glen Ellyn Civic Center, 535 Duane Street. The deadline to submit proposals to the Village is Friday, August 10, 2012 by 4:00pm.
