Marlborough Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) is pleased to issue this Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development of five parcels of land, located on the corner of Lincoln and Mechanic Streets in the “French Hill” neighborhood. As part of a broader strategy for urban revitalization, we are seeking qualified proposals for a mixed-use project that would create a mix of housing units and first-floor retail/commercial spaces.
Preferred projects will build to a scale and character comparable to existing larger developments in the neighborhood, such as Renaissance Lofts and Howe Shoe Factory Condominiums, as well as utilize materials to create an overall design that demonstrates a quality development emphasizing the City’s sense of history and desire for contextual, pedestrian-scaled projects that enhance the overall character of the French Hill neighborhood. Overall, development on the site should increase value in the neighborhood, enhance and encourage walkability between the French Hill neighborhood and the Marlborough Village District, attract visitors, and help to retain and recruit employees, while creating new housing opportunities within the City of Marlborough.
