City Issues RFQs for Development Sites in Roseland, West Garfield Park

Chicago’s Department of Planning and Development (DPD) has issued a pair of Requests for Qualifications (RFQs) for developers and architects to create mixed-use redevelopment proposals for key sites in West Garfield Park and Roseland. The RFQ process includes $25,000 stipends for shortlisted teams to work with community representatives on construction proposals for each location. 

The West Garfield Park RFQ seeks designer-developer teams to create mixed-use proposals for approximately 1.8 acres of land at 3801-51 W. Madison St., which includes a vacant grocery store building and several underutilized commercial structures. 

Part of INVEST South/West, the Roseland RFQ seeks designer-developer teams to create mixed-use proposals for three separate sites along South Michigan Avenue. They include the former Gately People’s Store and adjacent city land at Michigan Avenue and 112th Street, the historic Roseland Theater building and adjacent city land near Michigan and 113th Street, and city land adjacent to a planned Red Line station at Michigan and 115th Street.
