The city of Mesa wants to renovate the Historic Post Office building and is looking to award a pre-construction contract as part of the effort.
The Mesa City Council will consider awarding a $75,643 contract to ForeSite Design & Construction Inc. for a pre-construction services contract for the Historic Post Office renovations.
The contract approval is on the council’s Jan. 25 agenda.
The post office was formerly known as the Federal Building and is located at 26 North MacDonald Street.
The property was conveyed to the city by the U.S. government in 2002.
It is currently vacant except for the basement which was used for the storage by the Arizona Museum of Natural History.
Mesa has eyed redevelopment of the building parts of which date back to the 1930s.
The new improvement plans call for first floor space of the building being used for events and the second floor of the building being renovated and used for office space.
Mesa received 10 bids for the construction contract with city staffing designating ForeSite as the top bidder.
