Invitation for Lease and Redevelopment Proposals

TO POTENTIAL LESSEE/REDEVELOPER:

RE:     City of Woodbury / Request for Proposals (RFP) from Qualified

Restaurateurs, Lessees, and Redevelopers for the 200 North Broad Street Redevelopment Project Pursuant to Downtown Business District Redevelopment Plan.

 

Please be advised that your firm is hereby invited by the City of Woodbury, Gloucester County, New Jersey (“City”), to submit a lease and redevelopment proposal for the 200 North Broad Street Redevelopment Project, along with a proposed lease term, annual lease price, and the restaurant operator’s, lessee’s, and redeveloper’s qualifications for this project. Enclosed are the RFP package and the materials needed to develop your submission.

The City seeks a qualified restaurateur and redeveloper to lease the old Police Station site from the City for the operation of a restaurant.  The City will provide overall guidance and direction, and the improvements constructed by or on behalf of the selected lessee/redeveloper must adhere to those controls and regulations, as well as any State or other governmental controls and regulations, while also reflecting the lessee/redeveloper’s vision.

The lease and redevelopment proposals received will be evaluated as to the manner in which they are anticipated to achieve the City’s objectives for the Property and the objective of the Downtown Business District Redevelopment Plan.  The selected lessee/redeveloper’s vision for the Property shall be in compliance with the Downtown Business District Redevelopment Plan dated May 24, 2010.  The governing body and the combined Planning/Zoning Board shall review and approve the proposed site and building plans in advance.  The applicant must also receive any necessary approvals from State and local agencies for the operation of the restaurant.

Interested lessees/redevelopers are asked to submit proposals for the City’s receipt no later than the submission deadline of      1 p.m. on March 31, 2022, to the attention of Cassidy L. Swanson, Acting City Clerk, 33 Delaware Street, Woodbury, NJ 08096.

The City will acknowledge each timely received response.  Incomplete responses will be returned without consideration.

The City may interview proposed lessee/redevelopers in its discretion.  Prospective lessee/redevelopers shall identify their proposed project plan and expand upon its ability to complete the tasks, as requested by the City.  The selected lessee/redeveloper will be notified of the City’s decision, and will have the exclusive right, during a time period chosen by the City, to negotiate a mutually acceptable Memorandum of Understanding, Lease and Redevelopment Agreement with the City.

The Memorandum of Understanding and the Lease and Redevelopment Agreement will require the lessee/redeveloper to post required escrow funds to off-set City professional costs related to the project.

The City reserves the right to reject any and all proposals and is not obligated to enter into a Lease and Redevelopment Agreement if, in the City’s sole discretion, it is not in the best interest of the City.  The selected lessee/redeveloper will be expected to enter into a long-term lease and renovate the Property in accordance with the City’s Downtown Business District Redevelopment Plan dated May 24, 2010.  A critical feature in any proposal will be the potential lessee/redeveloper’s proposed lease term and annual lease price for a lease with the City.  The experience and financing of the restaurateur will also be critical factors to the City’s choice.

Each sealed proposal to be considered shall be returned with one (1) original and two (2) copies of the submission and shall provide hourly rates, and/or other terms and conditions, and qualifications. Each sealed proposal shall also include (1) flash drive of the electronic copy of the submission. The sealed proposal shall comport to the criteria set forth in the specification packets, and as found in the Code of the City of Woodbury.  The specification packets may be obtained online or in the Office of the City Clerk, 33 Delaware St, Woodbury, (856) 845-1300 ext. 146 or via email at [email protected].  The Municipal Appointing Authority shall thereafter publicly select the professional or business entity for the position so advertised, which shall thereafter be confirmed or approved as required by law, Resolution or Ordinance.
