The City of Arvada, the Arvada Urban Renewal Authority (AURA), and the Regional Transit District (RTD) have formed the Executive Oversight Committee (EOC), a collaborative working group established to oversee development of an exceptional transit oriented development (TOD) project in Arvada, Colorado. In early 2013, the EOC initiated a process to identify a Master Developer to work in partnership with the EOC to redevelop an 8.79-acre site that is directly across the tracks from the future Olde Town Arvada communter rail station.The station, scheduled to open in 2016, is on the Gold Line, the under-construction commuter corridor component of RTD’s FasTracks rail system.
The first step of the Master Developer selection process was a Request for Qualifications (RFQ), which was issued March 1, 2013. The second stage of the selection process was the issuance on April 19, 2013, of a Request for Proposals (RFP) to a short list of teams that responded to the RFQ. Interviews of the five teams submitting responses to the RFP were completed June 10, 2013, and an announcment of Trammell Crow Company as the Master Developer was made June 17, 2013. See the Information and Updates section below for additional information.
