City of Tampa accepting proposals to turn historic building into hotel

Tampa, FL -- The City of Tampa is looking to re-energize one of its downtown historic buildings by turning it into a luxury hotel and has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for all interested parties. 

The RFP is for the acquisition (long-term lease) and redevelopment of the Classic Federal Courthouse, located on North Florida Avenue in the heart of the Central Business District. The RFP specifically targets a hotel development.

"A luxury hotel in this building would be a magnet that not only illustrates quality urban design and function, but will also serve to stimulate additional growth in the neighborhood,” Mayor Bob Buckhorn said in a release.

The elegant Beaux-Arts style building was completed in 1905 and features stone, marble, three-story columns, towering windows, and oak trim throughout. The building was first used as a post office and customs house, and then as a federal courthouse from 1984 to 1998. The building has Local Historic Landmark designation and is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

To obtain a copy of the RFP package, please visit the City of Tampa website at www.tampagov.net/economicdevelopment.  All interested parties are invited to submit proposals no later than 4 p.m. on December 8, 2011 to the City of Tampa Purchasing Department, located at 306 East Jackson Street, second floor, Tampa, Florida 33602.
