Detroit Seeks Redevelopment Proposals for Paradise Valley District


The City of Detroit through the Downtown Development Authority is seeking proposals to restore and honor the rich cultural, economic and historical heritage of the former Paradise Valley within the area formerly known as Harmonie Park.

The DDA acquired five buildings and two parking lots within the Paradise Valley Cultural and Entertainment District and invested millions in infrastructure upgrades and building amenities to make the district attractive and desirable to both businesses and residents. The DDA is now seeking proposals to acquire and develop one or several of the structures and parking lots.

The parcels are zoned for mixed use and there are no plans to rezone. Interested parties may download the complete RFP or pick up copies from the reception desk at the Detroit Economic Growth Corp., 500 Griswold, Suite 2200, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. excluding holidays.

A pre-bid meeting will be held at 10 a.m. Oct. 15 at the DEGC office followed by a district walk-through. Proposals are due November 11.
