The Cambridge Redevelopment Authority (“CRA”) is seeking proposals from qualified firms or individuals to provide real estate advisory services. In particular, the consultant will assist the CRA in analyzing short-term real estate development strategies as a part of a larger strategic planning process.
The draft Strategic Plan projects a vision that states, “Through strategic community investments and real estate projects, the CRA will be creating landmark places that integrate enduring urban design, vibrant civic spaces, and sustainable approaches to infrastructure and the built environment.”
During its 57-year history, the CRA has conducted redevelopment projects throughout the city but its focus for the last several decades has been the development of Kendall Square. In partnership with the City of Cambridge, the CRA is looking at ongoing development opportunities in the Kendall Square Urban Renewal Area as well as other potential projects throughout the city.
Prospective proposers must demonstrate the ability to provide the services described in this document, must meet all minimum requirements, and must submit a complete proposal. The successful respondent must be an Equal Opportunity Employer. A contract will be awarded within 90 days of the proposal submission date, unless the award date is extended by consent of all parties concerned.
The CRA reserves the right to reject any or all proposals or accept the proposal deemed to be in the best interest of the Authority.
