Why is the riverfront property being sold?
In the last five years, EWEB has consolidated nearly all employees and operations at the Roosevelt Operations Center to improve efficiency and productivity, making the headquarters buildings largely unnecessary. The remaining employees – a small number of administrative and customer service staff – will move to the Roosevelt Operations Center by the end of the year.
The former downtown headquarters site is the last piece of EWEB’s riverfront property that has been slated for redevelopment as part of the EWEB Riverfront Master Plan, which was finalized in 2010 after consulting with hundreds of community members under the guidance of a Community Advisory Team.
What will replace the EWEB buildings?
We don’t know yet – and that’s the exciting part. Community organizations, property developers and others will soon be able to submit proposals for purchasing and developing the site through a formal Request for Proposals process. In general, proposals will be rated based on the sale price, the intended use, benefit to the community, conditions and contingencies, and the proposer’s qualifications to execute the project.
