EDA Releases RFQ For Purchase And Development Of Most Valuable Real Estate In North Camden
TRENTON (November 16, 2016) – Boasting views of the Philadelphia skyline and approximately 8.75 acres of prime developable land, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA) today released a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) seeking eligible respondents for the purchase and development of the former Riverfront Prison site on the Camden Waterfront.  The RFQ, 2016-RED-RFQ-DEV-061, can be found on the EDA’s website at www.njeda.com/bidding.
“The RFQ represents an opportunity to create a mixed-use development on the most valuable piece of real estate in North Camden,” said EDA Chief Executive Officer Melissa Orsen. “As a key part of North Camden’s redevelopment plan, the completed project will serve to revitalize the neighborhood, bring additional private investment to the City, and contribute to Camden’s ongoing renaissance.” 
In addition to the approximately 8.75 acres of developable land, the site also will benefit from a newly established public park and roadway improvements, both expected to be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2017.  Due to the site’s location in the City of Camden, development of the property may also be eligible for the highest amount of incentives, as well as property tax abatements, available through the New Jersey Economic Opportunity Act of 2013.
The sale is governed by P.L. 2013 c. 22, as well as the New Jersey State House Commission-approved Procedures for the Disposition of the Riverfront State Prison Property.  This includes a two-step RFQ/Sealed Bid process:
Step 1 –EDA will accept qualifications through March 1, 2017 at 2 p.m. Based on the criteria outlined in the RFQ, the EDA will establish a shortlist of eligible respondents.
Step 2 - EDA will issue a bid package to eligible respondents and accept sealed bids. 
If necessary, the EDA will issue and accept best and final offers.  The final sale and development will be subject to various approvals, including the Review Committee designated for this purpose, the New Jersey Department of the Treasury, the EDA Board, and the State House Commission.
The sale and development of the property must also be consistent with the North Camden Waterfront Study Area Redevelopment Plan. The Plan’s vision is to create a vibrant, mixed-use district that provides new opportunities for riverfront recreation and attracts sustainable development while connecting existing residential neighborhoods to the waterfront. The former prison site accounts for roughly one third of the North Camden Waterfront Study Area. In 2006, the Delaware River Port Authority Commissioned the Riverfront State Prison Reuse Study to analyze the reuse potential of the North Camden Riverfront. In 2010, demolition of the prison was completed, paving the way for future redevelopment.
Qualifications must be received by 2 p.m. on March 1, 2017 in a securely SEALED envelope or carton.
Qualifications should be shipped or delivered to:
New Jersey Economic Development Authority
Real Estate Division
REF # 2016-RED-RFQ-DEV-061
