Duluth Armory Redevelopment Opportunity

Armory Banner

The Armory Arts and Music Center, a Minnesota 501c3 nonprofit (the “AAMC”), as the owner of the property is pleased to issue this Request for Proposals seeking qualified respondents to rehabilitate, operate and acquire (if so inclined), the Duluth Armory property. There is also a secondary property as well, it currently has a single building on it, a former restaurant; that is now available for rehabilitation, new construction or for parking expansion. Exhibit A is a map of the site.

The AAMC intends to select one proposal for the rehabilitation of the Duluth Armory from the Respondent(s) deemed the best qualified to achieve the AAMC’s development objectives, which are described in the RFP. Please note, the AAMC development objects are considered to be a target. Each Respondent must put forward a project that will first and foremost function as a sustainable building in the community – the AAMC will remain open to proposals that can not meet all of the Programmatic Goals. 

The key dates for this offering and anticipated schedule for the selection of Respondent(s) are below. All times in this RFP are local to Duluth, Minnesota.
