Specifications include, but are not limited to:The intent of this Request for Proposals/Qualifications (RFP/Q) is to retain an experienced and qualified Developer(s) who will propose an exciting and feasible redevelopment and financial plan for the acquisition, restoration, and development of Parcel 572, a 104,000 square foot, vacant, concrete and brick structure situated on a 6.2-acre site located in the vibrant Eastern Market. A regional food accelerator facility would include modern food processing and production space that embodies 21st-century clean manufacturing, as well as, an opportunity for retail sales for food production and beverage processing tenants, or restaurants for tenants that have a market-to-table relationship with food production within Eastern Market. Eastern Market Corporation (EMC) is the non-profit corporation that operates the market on behalf of the City of Detroit that still owns the market. EMC has operated the market under a management and promotion agreement with the City of Detroit since 2006. The City of Detroit requires that 15,000 square feet of the overall 104,000 square foot building is managed by EMC, via lease or condo sale, in order to accelerate the growth of small to medium sized emerging food businesses by providing ready- to-occupy spaces for companies that need to quickly expand their production capacity. EMC will lease this space to provide buildable food processing space for existing market businesses, as well as, new startup food related companies, to bolster new business growth within Eastern Market District. EMC has made a commitment to raise funds for build-out of this space. In addition, EMC collaborates with many partners to create a nurturing ecosystem to support food venture creation and expansion from pre-development through incubation, and onto acceleration
