The Urban Development Corporation (UDC), invites Expression of Interest (EOI) Contractors, Land Developers, Engineering Firms, Architects, and/or other related Joint Ventures and Consortiums to design, finance, construct, operate and maintain a commercial development on approximately two and three-quarter (2.75) acres in the proposed Portmore Resilience Park at Lot 26 Portmore Town Centre, St Catherine.

The development of the Portmore Resilience Park will see the transformation of 26 acres of land within the urban centre into a multi-purpose space – serving the Portmore and wider communities of St. Catherine and users from across Jamaica. The development will include three (3) distinct elements, public green space, commercial development and a transportation hub.

The transformed area will see the creation of an 18-acre public green recreational, sporting, wellness and entertainment space for the Portmore community and visitors to the area. The 18-acre Park will feature hard and soft landscaping, sporting facilities, event spaces, commercial spaces, public restrooms, green technology, security features and parking. Details are as follows:

· Water recycling and re-use

· Multi-Storey Climate Observation Tower

· Gardens

· Outdoor multipurpose sports courts

· Indoor sports complex

· Jogging Trails

· Great Lawn

· Outdoor activity areas

· Mobile kiosks

· Car parking

· Security lighting

· Guard posts

In addition to the 18-acre open public space, there will be an allocation of five (5) acres for a transport hub/mixed-use facility, which forms the second element within the space.

The commercial development forms the third element within the space and is the subject of this EOI and is guided as follows:

· Lot Size: 2.75 acres / 11,138m2

· Allowable Building Size: Maximum of 70, 000 sq. ft

· Number of Storeys: Maximum four (4) storeys

· Building Coverage: 50%

Any proponent expressing interest in the commercial development must be aware that the parcel of land is an inclusive part of the overall Park development and as such, must bear this in mind in its design.

The UDC now invites eligible firms to indicate their interest by providing verifiable information demonstrating that they have the required capacity and relevant experience to perform the service.
