The City of Emeryville is seeking qualifications initially and, later, proposals from qualified teams of development and arts/cultural organizations to develop an Arts and Culture Center in the City of Emeryville. For the RFQ/P see www.emeryville.org/artcenter. The City of Emeryville is a compact, urban community of approximately 12,000 residents and 1,000 businesses employing 21,000 people daily - within 1.2 square miles. Emeryville is located at the eastern foot of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, on the east San Francisco Bay shoreline.Emeryville is a center of art and innovation, where biotechnology, technology, and advanced manufacturing firms thrive in a community where residents, employees and businesses produce visual and performing art works known worldwide.The city was historically a place of heavy industry, but has transformed itself into a dynamic mixed-use community through public-private partnerships. The City has adopted plans and policies that explicitly recognize the synergies between the arts community and the City’s economic future. Accordingly, the City is soliciting for partners to join the City in establishing a public-private partnership to design, build and operate a world-class community cultural arts center to amplify the civic and economic benefits of the City’s creative class.
