Fourth Street Crossing RFP
A Catalyst for Further Downtown Revitalization
Town of Silverthorne Requests Proposals for Development of ‘Fourth Street Crossing,’
a Catalyst for Further Downtown Revitalization
Silverthorne, Colorado – January 13, 2017 – The Town of Silverthorne has issued a Request for Proposals for the development of a key parcel in the heart of the community and the future of downtown Silverthorne.
“The Town has worked closely with Town Council, private landowners, businesses and residents to create a community-supported vision for our downtown, including pedestrian-friendly shops, restaurants, businesses and potentially residential spaces,” said Mayor Bruce Butler. “The opportunity to develop property that will define the identity and character of an entire mountain town for decades to come is rare, and that’s just the opportunity we have in Silverthorne today.”
The Town has taken a patient and methodical approach to laying the appropriate foundation for the successful development of “Fourth Street Crossing.” In recent years, the Town has worked diligently to adopt a new Comprehensive Plan, Zoning and Design Standards, and an Urban Renewal Plan, and this RFP is the next major step in the process.
Significant transformation of Silverthorne’s downtown area has accelerated in the last year with the development of the Town’s Performing Arts Center, a $9 million public/private partnership project currently under construction; approximately $21 million of private investment in residential development; and new breweries and restaurants that have opened.
“Silverthorne has worked deliberately over the past few years to earn a strong reputation for being a community that works well with developers,” said Butler. “Now we are seeking a top-notch development team that can rise to the challenge of creating an enduring downtown vision for the heart of our community.”
The Town is looking for developers who have prior similar experience with in-fill, downtown development, and designing and building redevelopment sites for mixed use with unique architecture and inviting gathering spaces.
Proposals from qualified developers are due on March 3, 2017. More information, including the complete Request for Proposals, is available at http://www.silverthorne.org/business/economic-development/fourth-street-crossing.
The Town of Silverthorne is a municipal government, incorporated in 1967 and operating under a Home Rule Charter adopted in 1994, which provides municipal services to Silverthorne residents and guests. Silverthorne’s Mission Statement is: To provide a year-round, family community with economic, recreational and social opportunities for all citizens to have a mountain quality of life. An incredible network of parks, trails and open space, along with a 60,000 sq. ft. recreation center, help the Town to deliver on that mission.
