RFP - Business Assistance Services During Construction of CityPlace Burlington

  • The City of Burlington’s Community & Economic Development Office (CEDO) is seeking proposals to provide business assistance services to businesses in the vicinity of the Burlington CityPlace redevelopment, with the goal of helping them remain viable and even thrive throughout construction. Although assistance might be more intense in the early stages of the project, ideally it would continue to be available in some capacity throughout the duration of construction, as needed by businesses.

    CityPlace Burlington (formerly Burlington Town Center) sits on approximately 5 acres in the heart of Burlington’s downtown. The former suburban-style mall property was purchased by Devonwood Investors in 2013. Since late 2014 the City of Burlington has worked with the owner on a process to create a plan for the site that would allow for a mixed-use development that contributes to a healthier, more walkable and prosperous downtown and is aligned with the goals of the City’s master planning document, planBTV Downtown and Waterfront Master Plan. 

    This is the largest development project in the history of Burlington, and the City recognizes that the potential for significant disruption to the downtown and its businesses is great. The City would like to assist businesses in the area of the redevelopment to ensure that impacts are minimized to the greatest extent possible, and that businesses are taking proactive steps to do everything within their power to minimize revenue loss and to remain vital, visible, and accessible throughout construction.
