The City of Savannah is accepting proposals from person(s), joint ventures, or other legal entities that are interested in the Fairgrounds Development project. Located at 4701 Meding Street, the parcel remains one of the largest undeveloped properties within the City’s incorporated limits. The City seeks to find a use for the site that will transcend typical public development into a transformational opportunity for the community. The City is not seeking a specified use but is looking to the marketplace to propose a viable and feasible use of the property that provides a return to the City on the land plus quantifiable community and social benefits. The proposed use could be commercial, residential, recreational, and/or athletic, or a combination of these uses, subject to applicable land use, zoning, and development regulations. 

The property offers the opportunity for a significant scale community and economic development project that could potentially include light industry and/or commerce, housing, recreation, and a regional park/athletic complex. 

Sealed Proposals should be submitted with a cover letter, proposed use, economic and community impact, business profile, experience, qualifications, financial capability, references, and appendix. These proposals are due in the office of the Purchasing Division, 305 Fahm Street, Savannah, GA 31401 no later than 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 28th, 2020. Proposal packages may be downloaded here.
