Glenwood Riverfront Request for Qualifications for Developers

Project Description

The City of Springfield Oregon’s urban renewal agency, Springfield Economic Development Agency (SEDA), seeks a well-qualified developer to implement the community vision for the SEDA owned Glenwood Riverfront land. This vision for the 9 acres is outlined within the Glenwood Refinement Plan and includes the development of a vibrant riverfront neighborhood that promotes density and a mix of housing, a focus on access to the riverfront and open spaces, and incorporation of hospitality and commercial opportunities.

A well-qualified developer will have demonstrable master development experience in not only planning, financing and construction of high design quality, but experience and attentiveness in emerging markets, community process and engagement, with established and verifiable business practice policies that prioritize diversity, equity, inclusion, and local sourcing, and values of sustainable design. Additionally, a qualified developer will be able to demonstrate financial capacity and experience utilizing alternative financing tools.
