City seeks proposals for redevelopment of Bldg 2 in Magnuson Park


Seattle Parks and Recreation is seeking proposals for the redevelopment and renovation of Building 2, the largest former airplane hangar in Warren G. Magnuson Park. Proposals should include the management and operation of recreation, arts and cultural or environmental programming that will be open to the public. This is a rare opportunity to develop a major facility in a prime location. Seattle Parks and Recreation does not have designated funding for this redevelopment and as a result, proposals should include a funding plan.\

Through this Request for Proposal (RFP) process, Seattle Parks and Recreation is looking for a partner who can make a significant capital investment in Building 2 in exchange for a long-term lease or concession agreement. While SPR encourages interested groups to work in partnership to develop a comprehensive proposal, the department intends to enter into an agreement with only one proposer. Therefore, only proposals where a designated sole lead entity or organization is clearly defined will be accepted.

Proposals are due Friday, June 3, 2016 by 4 p.m. and should be mailed to:

The City of Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation, Attention: Dan Iverson, Tenant Development Coordinator, 6310 NE 74th Street, Suite 109E, Seattle, Washington 98115,

SPR will host pre-submittal conferences and site tours on Jan. 26 at 10 a.m., Feb. 26 at 1 p.m. and on March 14 at 3 p.m. The events will be held at Building 2, 7727 63rd Ave. NE, Seattle, WA, 98115.
