HUD Section 108 Downtown Jackson Market Study
Department of Planning and Development is working with Hunden Strategic Partners to complete a feasibility/market analysis to assess downtown Jackson’s current market conditions and potential for any future development. During this time the long range planning group within the Department of Planning & Development, which consists of senior level planners will ideate, conceptualize, analyze and render projects. This group will help create a concept plan that describes the Project objectives, design criteria, architectural concepts, available public infrastructure and desired location of proposed uses. This plan will be incorporated into a Request for Proposals (RFP) solicitation for a Master Developer. Once a preferred proposer is identified and approved by the City Council, the City will enter into contract negotiations and execute an agreement with the Developer. It is anticipated that the project will be constructed in at two (2) phases, each block being a construction phase that lasts 18 months for a total of 3 years of construction time.
