1801 Vine & 1901 Wood Streets

Deadline: Sep 17, 2021

PIDC, on behalf of the City and PAID, is pleased to offer this exciting RFQ opportunity for parties interested in redeveloping the architecturally and historically-significant, 247,196 SF building, formerly known as The Judge Nicholas A. Cipriani Family Court Building (“Family Court Building”) and the approximately 88,300 SF lot at 1901 Wood Street (together known as “Property”).  The Property, in a highly visible location along and just behind the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, provides a rare opportunity to revitalize an important historic building and to create a unique, new development along Philadelphia’s most prominent thoroughfare

The City’s and PIDC’s primary objective in issuing this solicitation is to select a diverse, experienced, capable and qualified development team that will ultimately plan and implement a dynamic commercial development that significantly enhances and complements the existing cultural, commercial and residential developments along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and to maximize the value of the Property for the City. Of significance will be the development team’s ownership structure and programmatic considerations. Specific commitments to and direct representation of diversity, equity and inclusion at all phases and levels of any proposed development project will carry significance in the evaluation of responses.

PIDC has structured the solicitation for the Property as a two-step process, beginning with an RFQ to establish a shortlist of interested, capable, and qualified developers that will subsequently be invited to participate in a Request for Proposals (RFP) process.
