PLAN: Nubian Square: Parcel P3

P3 is a publicly-owned vacant piece of land assembled during the Campus High Urban Renewal Plan. Due to its large size, proximity to public transit, major roads, and educational facilities, this site has the potential to contribute to the economic development in the Nubian Square area while advancing the community’s commitments to affordable housing, arts & culture, and equity.

The site is different from other PLAN: Nubian Square sites in terms of its size and its infrastructure needs, and will therefore present different challenges and opportunities.

Building off of the PLAN: Nubian Square engagement process, the BPDA is seeking community input on the Request for Proposals (RFP) for P3. The PLAN: Nubian principles and evaluation criteria will be the starting point for the community process.
