The Springfield Business Journal reports that the City of Springfield has issued a request for qualifications hoping to land a master planner to help with the development of 200 acres the city owns.
From the report:
(T)he 200 acres are northwest of the James River Freeway and West Bypass interchange. The city already operates the nearby Southwest Wastewater Treatment Plant, John Twitty Energy Center and a salt storage facility shared with Greene County.
I am pretty sure David Wallace, formerly of Wallace Bajjali is not working for any cities these days. Surely he can make the transition from master developer to master planner.
According to the letter, “the department is considering use of the property to develop various offices and facilities to support their long-term mission.” It goes on to say the master plan would identify the developable areas, divide them into tracts, determine the potential marketability and recommend roadway access.
