Note: All packages must be clearly marked as follows: “RFP Response: Maiden Lane – Gateway to Albany’s Waterfront.” Proposals misdirected to other City locations or which are otherwise not present in the Planning Department office at the time of opening for any cause will be determined to be late and will not be considered.
The City of Albany is seeking a landscape architecture / urban design / engineering team to engage in a visioning and design process—creating a visible gateway to Albany’s riverfront from the City’s core downtown area. The Consultant is expected to explore creative ways of utilizing signage, sculpture, materials, lighting, amenities, and other innovative ideas in a common or unifying motif that reinforces the waterfront in a way that helps to direct and naturally lead people to this great asset. The focus area of this vision and design study will be from the intersection of Maiden Lane and North Pearl Street to the top of the steps of the pedestrian bridge. This area includes the area between 515 and 445 Broadway, the intersection and crosswalks at Broadway and Maiden Lane, and the park bounded by Broadway, Pine Street, James Street, and Maiden Lane—often referred to as Maiden Lane Park or Jim DiNapoli Park. Minority Business Enterprises and Women's Business Enterprises are encouraged to submit proposals. Copies of the RFP are available at the Department of Law, City Hall – Room 106, Albany, New York 12207, (518) 434-5050 or by clicking on the link below.  Responses are due on or before February 9, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.
