The Port of Vancouver USA is seeking proposals from development teams capable of designing, permitting, and constructing office, retail, housing and parking in a mixed-used development portion of the port’s 10 acre site on the Vancouver waterfront, adjacent to and overlooking the Columbia River in Vancouver, Washington.
This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is an important step towards the goal of remaking the Port of Vancouver’s waterfront property into a gateway to Washington State with a vibrant, sustainable, urban, and mixed use waterfront. The port’s waterfront property in Vancouver’s downtown will serve as the connection to a new private waterfront development (Columbia Waterfront LLC), Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, the City of Vancouver Renaissance Bike Trail and the Columbia River. This development is expected to be an important element that will drive ongoing revitalization of the Vancouver waterfront and city center.
The Port appreciates the interest of those in the real estate development industry and looks forward to selecting a development partner with whom it can collaborate to realize the vision for the property.
Questions arising from this request will be documented and answered in written form and made available on the port’s eBid system.
