Four Finalists Named for Scioto Peninsula Development Plan
The 21 acre Scioto Peninsula redevelopment project took another step forward today, with the announcement that four semi-finalists have been named through the project’s RFQ process. The project is being spearheaded by the Columbus Downtown Development Corporation (CDDC).
“Seven development teams — which included 14 different development companies — submitted in response to the Request for Qualifications for master developer of the Scioto Peninsula project,” stated Amy Taylor, CDDC Chief Operating Officer. “Four development teams were selected to proceed to the next step in the process and received the Request for Proposals.”
The four teams include:
- Buckingham Companies (headquartered in Indianapolis, IN)
- Carter (headquartered in Atlanta, GA), The Robert Weiler Company, Kelley Companies and Casto
- Crawford Hoying and SunCal (headquartered in Irvine, CA)
- Georgetown Company (headquartered in New York, NY), The Daimler Group and Kaufman Development
“We billed this as a national opportunity for a big mixed-use development and recruited both locally and nationally,” stated Guy Worley, President and CEO of CDDC. “All four of the finalists are quality developers experienced in building large mixed-use development.”
Worley added that he’s interested in seeing the finalist get started with phase one in Spring of 2018, expecting the entire build out of all phases to take approximately a decade to complete. Proposals from the four semi-finalists are expected to be submitted by June, with a selection made by September.
