Delhi Mixed Use Project
Delhi Township purchased 14 acres of property on Delhi Pike in 2019. Official closing date was October 11, 2019. This property was originally a Kmart and most recently a Remke Market, and the purchase also includes the current Dunkin Donuts property. The site is commonly called the Remke site, although we are calling it the Delhi Mixed Use Project.
Last year, we held public input sessions to consider and discuss ideas contained in the October 2019 conceptual drawings. Jeffrey Stec facilitated those sessions and his company is called Citizens for Civic Renewal. The input from these sessions is summarized below (Community Input Sessions Summary Phase One).
Through the first half of 2020 we embarked on understanding the public input, researching finance options and having a fitness/recreation center operated on the site. As you can see on the concept drawings below labeled July 2020, the site has been reworked although much of the same thoughts/uses are on the site.
A second round of public input sessions were held via Zoom on July 29th, August 3rd, August 4th and August 5th to engage with residents and stakeholders on the latest design contained in the July 2020 conceptual drawings. A recording of the Monday, August 3rd session, including a summary of the feedback from the sessions, can also be found below.
The Township received some great suggestions from this year’s sessions. Combined with the resident input from 2019, the data confirms that we have a solid design plan for the new mixed-use development. We are certain the new development will define a new and updated look for our business district, boost our local economy and set the tone for future development.
The reminder of the year will be committed to finalizing agreements with our partners who will be managing the cultural arts and recreational uses, finalizing more detailed plans and drawings for the buildings and outdoor spaces, making preparations for the demolition project scheduled to take place by the end of the year, and working through the construction management piece.
The Township submitted a request for Statement of Qualifications from firms interested in providing Construction Manager at Risk services, on October 12th. Proposals will be accepted through the deadline of November 12, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. Interested parties please see the Construction Manager RFQ link below.
