The Town of Cape Charles, Virginia, is requesting proposals for redevelopment of the Library Building.
Redevelopment proposals must address the following:
a. Intended use of the front mezzanine and third floor.
b. Other parcels to be incorporated in the redevelopment plan and intended use.
c. Compliance with the Cape Charles zoning ordinance, including parking, trash and
d. Compliance with the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code.
e. Access to the library and non-library portions of the building.
f. Public ingress/egress to the rear of the buildings on Mason Avenue.
g. Shared trash management area.
h. Ownership (and if applicable, lease) arrangement for retained library space.
i. Condominium unit price and projected condominium fee (and if applicable, lease
price with principal terms and conditions).
j. Timeline for redevelopment.
k. Property purchase price.
From Town Manager John Hozey- Take a look at the request for proposals you cited below. It pretty much explains what we’re doing. But as a quick summary, we’re looking for proposals from developers to buy the building, renovate the top floors, “condo-ize” the building, and then sell us back the library portion. At the end of the day, the town renovates/keeps the library, and the rest of the building goes into private hands. That said, the RFP we have on the street also invites other developer ideas. We’ll have to wait to see what we get back.
