At times PHDC will need to engage a consultant to support the work of our permanent staff or for adjunct services to our developments. When we do, we’ll issue a Request for Proposals or Qualifications. Sign up for our mailing list and we’ll notify you when we post them.
RFQ for 4300 Ridge Avenue Public Art
PHDC and the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority (PRA), and CRP/GO Ridge Flats Owner, LLC are pleased to offer this opportunity for a public art project to be located at 4300-4312 and 4314-4326 Ridge Avenue to be developed by CRP/GO Ridge Flats Owner, LLC. This opportunity is part of PRA’s Percent for Art program, which requires developers building on land acquired from the public sector to commit one percent (1%) of their construction costs to original, site-specific works of art. Up to six (6) applicants (finalists) will be selected from the pool of applicants to this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) and will subsequently be invited to submit a proposal in response to an upcoming project Request for Proposals (RFP).
Relationship of PRA to PHDC
In July 2019 PRA and the Philadelphia Land Bank merged with PHDC—combining staffs and making PHDC the public-facing brand. Although the PRA still exists, its work is carried out by the staff of PHDC.
