RFP for Miles Mack Playground Renovations

On behalf of the City of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority (PRA) is pleased to issue this RFP for qualified prime contractors for the Miles Mack Playground Renovations project located at 736 N. 36th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104. This project is part of the City’s Rebuilding Community Infrastructure Program (Rebuild).

Relationship of PRA to PHDC
In July 2019, PRA and the Philadelphia Land Bank merged with the Philadelphia Housing Development Corporation (“PHDC”)—combining staffs and making PHDC the public-facing brand. Although the PRA still exists and operates to achieve its statutory purpose, its work is carried out by the staff of PHDC. Although the PRA is the City’s agent for this RFP, the RFP is being posted on PHDC’s website.
