On Tuesday, the city issued a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) for four parcels of land at St. Elizabeths East. What this means, in layman’s terms, is that the city is now on the hunt for a team to redevelop about seven acres on the site of the former mental hospital.

The parcels are on the southern part of the campus and run from Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue to Alabama Avenue SE. Residential plays a big part in what the city envisions for the parcels; in addition to commercial and retail aspects, a multi-family aspect is included when discussing the future of each one.

Following a site visit on January 16th, proposals will be due on March 15, 2013. If all goes according to schedule, the city will pick the winning team next summer.
