Roseland — Michigan Avenue RFQ

Through this RFQ, DPD seeks to identify design and development teams to revitalize three vacant sites in Roseland. Short-listed applicants will form developer-designer teams that will each receive a $25,000 stipend on proposals that align with previous community visioning sessions for each location, including the former Gately's Peoples Store, the Roseland Theater building and land adjacent to a planned CTA Red Line station. Winning RFQ teams are expected to be announced this spring.
