This is a request for information.

NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) is hereby requesting information from interested sources for potential development of GRC’s north campus, which is located on the North side of Brookpark Road across from NASA’s main entrance and the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. Currently Building 500 and 501, totaling 204,593 square feet in area, with an approximate capacity of 1050 personnel, exist on this 18.88 acre site along with a parking lot for approximately 800 vehicles.

Attached are the floor plans, site plan, and aerial photograph.

NASA GRC intends to demolish Buildings 500 and 501, remove the Underpass Roadway and Bridges, and to generally clear the site. NASA intends to enable the redevelopment of NASA’s land by the private sector in a manner that supports the Agency’s missions. NASA GRC envisions that NASA’s North Campus land could be developed by the private sector as an office and technology park to house NASA Support Service Contractors, aerospace partners, or provide general office space to the private sector’s utilization.

Building 501 has no existing occupants. The existing NASA civil servant occupants in Building 500 will be relocated to GRC’s main campus offices in February 2010. The remaining support service contractor in Building 500, with approximately 325 personnel, will be looking to commercial office facilities to house their employees. Building 500 is intended to be vacated in the Spring of 2010.

The purpose of this notice is to help NASA identify parties who may be interested and capable of providing a development concept for the north campus in advance of the scheduled demolition of the buildings (demolition currently scheduled to commence summer 2010).

Any expression of interest should reflect the following assumptions…

* There are no federal funds available for this activity, nor are there guaranteed tenants.

* NASA will consider a long-term lease of the property (land).

* The developer may consider concepts where NASA’s existing building(s) are not demolished.

* The developer must assume all financial responsibility for any construction, rehabilitation, operations, and maintenance of the North Campus site.

* The developer will own all permanent structures erected by the developer or abandoned by NASA as part of any redevelopment effort.

* The developer will demolish all permanent structures at the end of the term of the lease, and return the site to NASA as a green field.

* All redevelopment concepts must include a significant amount “class A/B” office space dedicated for Aerospace related entities. The developer will offer to lease a minimum of 30% of the available office space to house NASA support service contractor occupants.

* NASA will reserve the right to approve the type of tenants who lease office space from the developer.

* The developer will be responsible to comply will all Federal, State and Local regulations related to construction, demolition, occupancy, operations, etc.

Parties interested in providing a development concept for the North Campus are invited to respond to this RFI. Any response should include:

– Description of Concepts to develop the north campus. – Capabilities and experience in similar development. – Minimum requirements needed from NASA to develop the north campus.

It is requested that initial responses be limited to no more than 10 pages.

All questions should be directed to Lori A. Conroy, Contracting Officer at (216) 433-3086 or emailed to

NASA will review all responses and companies may be contacted for further information.

This request is for information and planning purposes and is not to be construed as a commitment by the Government nor will the Government pay for information solicited. Respondents deemed fully qualified may be contacted by the Government for further discussions or submission of a proposal for development.

All responses shall be submitted no later than 1/29/2010 to Lori A. Conroy, NASA Glenn Research Center, 21000 Brookpark Road, Mail Stop 500-312, Cleveland, OH 44135. Responses may also be emailed to Responses should be postmarked no later than January 29, 2010. Please reference B. 500/501 in any response.
