Prime Redevelopment Opportunity- CRA


REQUEST FOR LETTERS OF INTEREST 

REDEVELOPMENT OF 6200 PARK BOULEVARD 

Release Date: February 1, 2021  

Due Date: March 19, 2021 at 5:00 PM 

Request for Letters of Interest 

The Pinellas Park Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) is soliciting Letters of  Interest (LOI) for the redevelopment of 6200 Park Boulevard. The property was a strategic  acquisition made by the CRA for redevelopment purposes. Located in the City’s Medical  District and within close proximity to the emerging City Center, the property presents a  catalytic development opportunity. Significant public investment is being made by the City  and CRA as part of the City Center project. Planned enhancements to the area include  major infrastructure improvements and increased amenities. The future use of the  property should have features that attract the general public and demonstrate a  connection to the City Center. 

The CRA would like to gauge private sector interest in redevelopment of the property.  LOIs are being sought to help determine the type and extent of interest in the 

redevelopment of the property, provide opportunities for interested parties to identify other  entities that may be interested in participating as co-developers, and to potentially inform  the preparation and issuance of a Request for Proposal (RFP), if warranted.
