On December 1, 2016 the City of Baltimore Development Corporation (BDC) on behalf of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, along with the Baltimore Public Markets Corporation (“BPMC”), issued a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) from qualified Respondents for the lease or purchase and redevelopment of City-owned Broadway Market properties. Responses are due by 12 p.m. on February 13, 2017, in the offices of the BDC. click here to access the RFP.
Broadway Market is located in the historic Fells Point Neighborhood and includes two properties: 1640 Aliceanna Street and 1641 Aliceanna Street (collectively “the Site”). The 1640 Aliceanna Street property is approximately 15,000 square feet and includes the Broadway Market North Shed and a parking lot. The 1641 Aliceanna Street property is approximately 17,600 square feet and includes the Broadway Market South Shed and a parking lot. Over a dozen real estate and development projects valued at nearly $380 million have been completed, or are under construction, within three blocks of the Site.
Respondents can submit a development proposal for one or both properties contained in in the Site. The Site is within the Fells Point CHAP District and contains market structures that have historical significance to the neighborhood and the City of Baltimore, as they are two of the remaining six Baltimore Public Markets and part of the oldest continuously operating public market system in the United States. The Historic District is a defining feature of the Site which makes it unique from other communities and therefore maintaining the character of the Historic District by incorporating historic preservation principles in the Site, where technically and economically feasible, is encouraged.
