Streetscape Master Plan Design Services
The West Village District Management Association, Inc. (“WVDMA”), a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that manages the West Village Business Improvement District (“WVBID”), is accepting proposals from qualified firms to conduct a comprehensive study and implementation plan (the “Plan”) of 7th Avenue South’s streetscape and public realm in the West Village Business Improvement District area (the “District”; see map in Attachment A).
We are seeking an inter-disciplinary consultant team (urban design, landscape architecture, etc.) to prepare a streetscape design masterplan for the 7th Avenue South corridor, from Greenwich Ave. to Clarkson/Carmine Streets. This master plan will guide all design and treatments for the corridor, to be phased in over the next few years. Therefore, we are interested in a conceptual plan that includes both short- and long-term strategies, a toolkit of street furniture, a catalog of amenities and planting elements, and the approximate costs for implementation and expected annual maintenance.
Our ultimate objective for the plan is to clearly define the character of 7th Avenue South, encourage pedestrian activity, and create an enjoyable, aesthetically pleasing urban experience with enhanced connections between the east & wide sides of the District. The Consultant is expected to analyze current conditions, engage the community, create a unifying vision and urban design framework, and develop a streetscape implementation and maintenance plan for immediate and long-term enhancements. The selected firm will work closely with WVDMA to create design plans and obtain approvals from the relevant city agencies. We invite your firm to submit a proposal to us by Wednesday, November 8th for consideration.
The budget for this contract is $75,000. However, bids in excess of the budgeted amount may be considered. A description of our organization, the services requested, and other pertinent information follows.
