City Council formalized its request for qualifications for a master developer partner with the City of Sandy Springs and the development of the City Center project on Tuesday night.
During the City Council meeting, councilmembers agreed that the RFQ will be open to developers interested in the financing of public and private facilities. Last month, the city released a draft RFQ for input from potential developers.
Sandy Springs is looking for a development partner to lead efforts surrounding the 14-acre block bounded by Johnson Ferry Road to the north, Roswell Road to the east, Mount Vernon Highway to the south, and Sandy Springs Circle to the west. Ideally, the City Center project will be a mixed-use development with dining, luxury residential apartments, retail, a civic center cultural space and green space.
Mayor Eva Galambos has said a master developer is the first step towards the goal of a public/private partnership.
The city will hold a pre-submittal conference at 10 a.m., on Sept. 26 at Heritage Sandy Springs, where interested parties can get additional information and ask questions. Phase one of the review process is Oct. 28-Nov. 1.
