Pittsburgh Public Schools today issued the request for proposals for the sale and re-use of the former Pittsburgh Schenley High School in Oakland.
In a 5-4 vote last month, the school board agreed to put the 320,000-square-foot historic building up for sale. The minimum price is $4 million.
The deadline for proposals is Jan. 18, 2013. Proposals are to be made to Fourth River Development, which is marketing the site.
Potential bidders, by appointment, may inspect the building on Nov. 27. A pre-proposal conference is mandatory for bidders on Nov. 28.
The proposal says the building must be retained and rehabilitated to historic standards.
Proposals will be evaluated based on, among other things, the overall scope and quality, opportunities for community input, quality of the construction, meeting of historical rehabilitation standards, quality and compatibility of design.
The full RFP can be found on Fourth River's website.
