Community Development Corporation seeks Master Plan designer

East Market Street Development Corp.

East Market Street Development Corporation (EMSDC) seeks to qualify and engage a design firm to complete a Master Plan for the redevelopment of 900 East Market Street, Greensboro, formerly the site of a United States Postal Service (USPS) Post Office & Mail Processing Center. The designer will be responsible for completing the project design and developing an estimated cost of the proposed projects on the site. At over 11 acres of useable area, this site is the largest available site in the heart of the East Market Street corridor. This redevelopment project is a key component of the overall community revitalization and the community anticipates leveraging the project to strengthen the long-term prosperity of the corridor. Responses to this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) will be evaluated on the experience of the design team, project approach and style in working with project stakeholders.

This 240,000 square foot facility served as the main post office and mail processing facility for Greensboro from its opening in 1966 until 1999, when it was replaced by a larger facility located near the Piedmont Triad Airport. Although the property is over 13 acres in size, part of that is within the railroad right-of-way that runs along most of the back edge of the property, which sits just east of downtown Greensboro
