Bid Title: RFP Redevelopment of Land Located at South 28th Street and 2nd Avenue
Category: Notice to Bidders - Land Development
Status: Closed

The City of Council Bluffs through its Community Development Department is accepting proposals for the purchase and development of 2.54 acres of real estate located in west Council Bluffs for the development of a multi-family housing development with roughly between 80 and 100 units. The subject property is located north of 2nd Avenue between South 28th Street and South 29th Street (See Attachment A).

Because the block is between the commercial district to the north and single-family neighborhood to the south, the City wishes to increase density along the 1st Avenue but be sensitive to the aesthetics of the original neighborhood. In 2020, the City plans to begin the construction of a trail while also exploring a new public transportation mode in the 1st Avenue corridor. To create an urban environment, the northern half of the block should be higher density in nature creating an edge to the development. The southern half should be a lower density style that provides a transition to the single-family neighborhood.
