The Waukesha Redevelopment Authority has released a Request for Expressions of Interest for the redevelopment of the properties at 200 and 318 Delafield Street.  The three (3) parcels total 3.38 acres in area and currently contain a vacant retail strip mall and an automotive service business. The City of Waukesha purchased the properties in March 2018 and is sending out this RFEI is to solicit ideas and concepts that will enhance the Delafield Street gateway into downtown and the area around City Hall while maximizing the economic benefit to the citizens of Waukesha. The City will be razing all of the buildings on the property and will also undertake any required environmental remediation. It is anticipated the site will be “shovel-ready” prior to sale to a selected developer and any responses to this RFEI should take this into account.

The site is located a few blocks from Downtown Waukesha, which offers unique retail, entertainment, and dining options and year round events including the Waukesha Farmers’ Market and Friday Night Live Concert Series. The site is also within walking distance of Waukesha Metro Transit Center, City Hall, Horeb Springs Park & Aquatic Center and the Riverwalk.

Responses to this request are due by August 1, 2018 at 4:00 P.M. The Redevelopment Authority will select, through this RFEI process, developers to send Requests for Proposals to.

If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Fortin, Senor Planner at (262) 524-3755. 

The City of Waukesha Redevelopment Authority was established in 1982 to spearhead the redevelopment efforts within the downtown-central city. The seven member Authority has two Aldermen and five Citizen members.
