The City of Laurel Community Redevelopment Authority (CRA) is seeking redevelopers and/or redevelopment teams (the "Developer") to submit proposals for the purchase and development of property owned by the City of Laurel CRA known as 312 Main Street, Laurel, Maryland (the "Site"). The Site, consisting of 14,050 square feet, is located with-in the Eastern Main Street Historic District of the City of Laurel. The Site includes the west 40 feet of lot 2 and the east 25 feet of lot 2, Block 43 of the Talbott Estates Subdivision (Plat A-0848). The goal of this RFP is to select a Developer who has both the ability to purchase the Site and to complete a unique development project.

The Site is currently vacant. However, there was formerly a movie theater on the site which was demolished in 2016. The CRA purchased the property in 2014 in order to develop the property and is seeking ideas, a vision, and a methodology from experienced developers to transform this key site into a use that will complement the adjacent residential neighborhood and enhance Main Street while adding to the success of Main Street commercial core. The development of the Site will set the direction for new redevelopment along the City's Main Street.

Submissions are due August 31, 2016, at 3:00 p.m., at the City of Laurel Municipal Center, 8103 Sandy Spring Road, Laurel, Maryland 20707-2502.
