RFP and addendum for Menomonee Valley RiverWalk Design

Menomonee Valley Partners, in partnership with the City of Milwaukee, has released a request for proposals seeking a firm to prepare designs for the recently proposed Menomonee Valley Riverwalk.

 

 

This first big step in designing the RiverWalk system’s expansion to the Menomonee River comes just months after the Milwaukee RiverWalk became one of 13 development projects in North America, Europe, and Asia to win a Global Award of Excellence from the Urban Land Institute. The award is considered among the world’s highest honors from land use experts.

“The RiverWalk continues to expand because it adds to property values, to the attractiveness of real estate near the river, and, most importantly, it adds to our quality of life,” said Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

Preliminary steps to begin RiverWalk design were taken in the past year, including Common Council approval of a Menomonee Valley RiverWalk Overlay Zone, which preserves the right to future public access along the Menomonee Valley’s riverfront, as well as the recent release of site design concepts generated through the Menomonee Valley Design Charette, which showed the development potential for the Valley’s remaining undeveloped riverfront sites.

Proposals are due June 7, 2018 by 4:00 p.m. View the Request for Proposals here

A riverwalk is yet another transformative development with great potential to alter the fabric of the Menomonee Valley.
