MassDevelopment is seeking a qualified development team to acquire the Site to redevelop and activate this underused, well-located property. The Agency will consider any feasible development scenario, with preference given to proposals that advance the neighborhood’s ongoing cultural and economic revitalization, activate the streetscape, and align with the needs and desires of the City of New Bedford (“City”) and downtown. MassDevelopment is open to a range of uses at the Site, including but not limited to: residential, commercial, retail, local businesses, cultural and creative uses, educational and non-profit uses. Proposals with a long development timeline should consider conditions at the Site during the predevelopment period and, if possible, address potential site activation during that period. Responses that include uses such as surface parking at the Site will not be competitive. A successful proposal will demonstrate a development team’s capacity, expertise, and past experience with projects of similar complexity.
