RFI: Miami’s David W. Dyer Federal Courthouse
Between now and October 1, the US General Services Administration (GSA) is asking the development community for ideas on how to preserve and reuse a beautiful historic courthouse in Miami.
The recently vacated Spanish-Mediterranean Revival courthouse, built in 1933, is slated for possible new development or uses. Being called an “excess property”, the GSA is “looking forward to receiving solid ideas from the development community,” said Shyam Reddy, regional administrator of GSA’s Southeast Sunbelt Region. “These responses will help GSA proceed with a strong repositioning strategy for the Dyer Courthouse. We stand firm behind our commitment to ensuring the property is repurposed in a way that benefits the local community and extracts the highest return to the American taxpayer.”
The GSA will use the ideas and information in its strategic planning efforts, which will decide the next potential use for the nationally registered historic place. This could be a real opportunity for developers, architects, designers, and preservationists to use their knowledge and expertise to help shape a great opportunity. See the RFI posting for more information.
This is the first of an RFI/RFP series of posts meant to share opportunities with designers, architects, developers, and other interested parties.
