Sugar Land issues RFQ for new-ballpark construction

Atlantic LeagueThe city of Sugar Land has issued a preliminary RFQ for a design-build firm on a new ballpark for an independent Atlantic League team.

The city is working with Opening Day Partners (ODP) on the project; the city will own the $30-million ballpark, funded by economic sales-tax revenues; ODP will manage and bring a team in as a tenant. The ballpark is slated to open for the 2012 season.

You can download the RFQ here.

Design-build means the winning bidder will both design the facility and then build it, using criteria set forth by the city and ODP.
