CLOSED-Freeway Park Improvements; RFQ-PARKS-1219

Original Date Posted: January 2, 2019 7:30 am

City of Seattle Request for Consultant Services

Project Title: Freeway Park Improvements

RFQ Due Date: 1/31/2019, 4:00pm

Scope of Work: Seattle Parks and Recreation is seeking a qualified consultant team to provide professional services to design improvements to Freeway Park. Located between 6th and 9th Avenues and over Interstate 5, Freeway Park is bounded on the north by Union and on the south by Spring Street. To the east is First Hill, to the west the park overlooks Seattle’s financial center. Freeway Park provides a space where residents, shoppers, downtown office workers, hotel visitors and the whole array of people from all backgrounds who make up the downtown population may come together to enjoy the social elements of a city park.

As a result of the Washington State Convention Center Expansion Project’s proposed street vacations, $10 million will be paid to Seattle Parks and Recreation over the next twenty-one (21) months to repair, restore and possibly enhance Freeway Park. This $10 million is part of the public benefit package associated with the Convention Center expansion. A portion of this money ($750,000) is focused on activation within Freeway Park; the remainder ($9,250,000) dedicated to capital improvements at the park.

The rough order of magnitude cost estimate to repair, restore and possibly enhance Freeway Park is based on the Finding Freeway Park concept plan, produced by the Freeway Park Association, which identifies areas of focus. Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is issuing this RFQ for a design team to begin the design process with broad public and stakeholder outreach. The design team will report directly to the SPR project manager and there may also be a steering committee to assist SPR with project review and public outreach. Background documents, including the Finding Freeway Park concept plan are available on the project website: That concept plan will be the basis for the design services solicited in this RFQ. The consultant team will work with Seattle Parks and Recreation and the public to design the improvements, continue the public outreach and secure all necessary local, State and Federal permits and approvals.
