Bid Title: RFP for Crowther Development
Category: Economic Development
Status: Closed

This is a Request for Proposals (RFP) issued by the City of Placentia, California in connection with a Transit Oriented Development (TOD) opportunity to develop approximately 1.62-net acres (“Site”) of City-owned property located at 207-209 W. Crowther Avenue (Crowther Development) into a state-of-the art, mixed use project that generates revenue to the City and serves as a premier regional destination.

The City is partnering with the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) on the design and construction of a Metrolink Station and Parking Structure to serve the City and transportation commuters. The Metrolink commuter rail station will include two platforms, north and south of the Burlington North Santa Fe (BNSF) rail tracks. The Site is immediately adjacent to the Metrolink station south platform, which creates a unique development opportunity not currently available in Orange County. OCTA will begin construction on the Metrolink Station and the 246 space parking structure in the fall of 2018.  The completion date is summer 2020. Additionally, the Site is 0.7 miles away from the SR 57 freeway. Allowable residential density is 65-95 dwelling units per acre, which equates to 105-153 dwelling units for the Site.
