2017 COLLINS/ARAPAHO TRANSIT-ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT AND INNOVATION DISTRICT STUDY

The City of Richardson, Texas is seeking qualified candidates to respond to its Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for professional services to conduct a transit-oriented development and innovation district vision study for an approximate 1,200-acre study area. It is the City’s desire to maximize the potential for transit-oriented development in proximity to an existing light rail station and reposition the study area as a successful innovation district that is an economic driver within the city and region.  The vision study should be based on sound placemaking strategies, and result in a successful environment where people will want to live, work and play.  The study area is generally bounded by Central Expressway (US 75) on the west, Campbell Road on the north, Plano Road on the east, Apollo Road on the south, and Greenville Avenue/Arapaho Road on the southwest.  The Arapaho Center Station, an existing Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) light rail station, is located on the western edge of the study area.

The RFQ is available at cor.net/carfq and via BidSync.

Consultants are encouraged to partner, if appropriate, to assemble the right combination of skills to address the preliminary scope of services described within the RFQ.

The deadline for consultant firms/teams interested in responding to the RFQ is Tuesday October 31, 2017, by 4:00 P.M. (CDT). Submission requirements are contained within the RFQ.
