The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) Office of Real Estate and Economic Development and the MDOT Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) are seeking interested developers to respond to a public Request for Proposals (RFP) for a potential transit-oriented development (TOD) on approximately 25 acres of state-owned property at the Reisterstown Plaza Metro Station in Baltimore. The official RFP date of issuance is May 17, 2021, and responses are due no later than Friday, September 3, 2021. The site is owned by MDOT MTA and is located at 6300 Wabash Avenue.
Prospective developers will work with a variety of stakeholders, including area residents, commuters, community groups and state and local agencies, to develop a mixed-use TOD at the site utilizing surface parking areas and unimproved land. The development community is invited and encouraged to present innovative proposals that enhance the community and transit systems near the Reisterstown Plaza Metro Station.
The release of the RFP follows a community information meeting held July 11, 2019, prior to the release of the Request for Expression of Interest, and another community meeting held March 30, 2021, to share an update and discuss MDOT's intent to release the RFP. That meeting was held virtually in consideration of COVID-19 guidelines, and materials from the presentation are available on the project website HERE.
Proposals from interested developers and partners will be required to meet the requirements of the RFP. Those wishing to submit an RFP also should visit the project website HERE for additional project information, up to date news, and documentation. A site visit is planned for late May for prospective RFP applicants. For details and to register, contact Miguel Garcia at firstname.lastname@example.org in the MDOT Office of Real Estate and Economic Development.
MDOT's goal is to provide a safe and secure transit system to clients and improve our multimodal transit systems across the state.
