Little Tokyo/Arts District Station Request for Interest/Qualifications Released

Metro released a Request for Interest/Qualifications (RFI/Q) for the Little Tokyo/Arts District Station on August 27, 2018. The RFI/Q sets expectations for a high quality project consistent with stakeholder priorities and Metro’s mission of creating Transit Oriented Communities (TOC). With the RFI/Q, Metro is soliciting innovative ideas that think beyond typical development scenarios, align with community priorities, and encourage opportunities for strategic public/private partnerships to enhance the area around the future Little Tokyo/Arts District Station.

Due to the unique nature of this solicitation and depending on the submittals received, potential outcomes of the RFI/Q may include issuing a full Request for Proposals (RFP) to shortlisted proposal teams, or entering into an Exclusive Negotiation Agreement and Planning Document with the highest scoring team. To download the RFI/Q and for more information, visit Metro’s Vendor Portal and search for solicitation number PS55542.
