1 Taylor Street is the site formerly known as the "Carr Lot” property. It is located on the east side of Taylor Street in the city of Montpelier at the confluence of the North Branch and Winooski Rivers. It is approximately one acre in size. It was purchased by the city of Montpelier in January 2014 and is currently leased by the State of Vermont for state employee parking. It is centrally located in the downtown business district and adjacent to the State's Capitol Complex. The city of Montpelier hopes to transform what was once a scrap yard and train depot into a state-of-the-art transportation and commercial center and public park. This project is funded through the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Transit Administration and the City of Montpelier.
As part of this redevelopment project, the city is looking to enter into an agreement with a development partner to build the multimodal transit center and upper floor private development. Here you will find information on that process. Request for Proposals (RFP): In January 2014 this RFP was issued to the two qualified respondents to the RFQ - DEW and Redstone. Their proposals are linked here:
On January 14, 2014 a public meeting was held with the qualified potential development partners to review the RFP and answer questions. In response to requests, additional information is provided here:
Request for Qualifications (RFQ): In October 2013 an RFQ was issued asking interested parties to submit qualifications for entering into a partnership with the City of Montpelier to develop, design and construct the upper floors of the Multi Modal Transit Center.
