City of Glendale Offering Hotel Development Opportunity 

Release Date: Jan 18, 2019
Submission Deadline: 5 pm on Thursday, April 18, 2019

The City of Glendale (“City”) invites qualified firms to submit a proposal for development of a hotel or hotels with additional public parking on two separate City-owned parking lots located at Maryland and California Avenues within Downtown Glendale. Development would be pursuant to a long-term ground lease with the City of Glendale. Proposals must be submitted in accordance with all requirements of this Request for Proposals (RFP).  The submission deadline is 5 pm Thursday, April 18, 2019.

The two City-owned parking lots (Lots #2 and #3) are located at the northwest and southwest corners of California Avenue and North Maryland Avenue (collectively “Potential Development Sites” or “Sites”).  The Sites are located steps away from the Mid-Brand district, a two block, pedestrian-orientated commercial area that features a variety of retail, restaurant and service uses located in traditional storefronts which retain the "old downtown main street" feel originally developed in the 1920’s.  In addition, the Sites are located within walking distance from the Glendale Galleria and The Americana at Brand to the south and are immediately adjacent to the Financial District to the north, home to the City’s premiere office developments and major employers.

This RFP is for purposes of selecting a qualified developer who will be invited to enter into a limited-term Exclusive Negotiating Agreement (ENA) with the City.  The developer will be selected based on their capability to, among other things, develop a minimum “Three-Diamond” level limited service hotel or hotels with associated amenities on one or both Sites and to replace all the existing public parking on the Site or Sites. The City is willing to consider proposals that connect the Sites via a bridge in the airspace over California Avenue or a connection underneath the street.

We invite you to apply, and be a part of this new chapter in Glendale’s history.
All details of the RFP can be found here.
