The City of Mesa has issued an RFP to redevelop approximately 2.5 acres at the northwest corner of Country Club Drive and Main Street.
According to Jeff McVay, the city’s manager of downtown transformation, Mesa is seeking a signature development that announces visitors’ arrival into the district. “That’s the area’s western boundary; so we need something that, when you see it, you know you’ve reached downtown.”
His goals for the proposal ultimately chosen will focus on intensity. Ideally, the development will feature a mixed use development four stories or higher and an active first floor. Three stories is the minimum.
