Lincoln Avenue Corridor

Lincoln Avenue is located in Downtown Salinas, just two blocks from Main Street.  It is currently mostly occupied by government buildings and street-level parking.  The City's Downtown Vibrancy Plan envisions the corridor being transformed to accommodate a new Civic Center, a parking garage, and mixed-use development.  The City has released a Request for Qualifications to find potential partners to redevelop this corridor.  Responses are due by May 15, 2019.  The response time for this RFQ has been extended to July 12, 2019.  Please see the Updated Request for Qualifications for more information regarding the project description and submittal requirements.
