From Director of Economic and Community Development Patrick McMahon
The Town of Suffield, Connecticut, is soliciting proposals from firms for the redevelopment of a 3.43-acre parcel with the building at 90 Bridge Street.
A walkthrough of the Bridge Street School is scheduled for Thursday, May 3, at 10 a.m.
The Bridge Street School was built in 1924 and is in generally good condition. The first floor has 12,173 square feet of finished area including a large open area that was used as a cafeteria. There is an additional 1,564 square feet of finished area in the east end of the basement. Parties with interesting and competitive ideas for the property’s reuse are encouraged to respond to this Request for Proposals.
The historic qualities, unique location, and development potential for the Bridge Street School property create an attractive prospect for an innovative development firm or private enterprise.
The Town will welcome proposals that will utilize the site in its entirety and includes the renovation of the Bridge Street School. The Town envisions selling the property and the proposed acquisition price will be an important consideration.
The Town is committed to facilitating redevelopment of the Bridge Street School property and will cooperate with the chosen development team to the greatest extent possible. However, redevelopment schemes should not place disproportionate requirements on municipal resources.

Proposals are due by noon on Friday, June 15.
