RFQ: Santa Rosa Courthouse Square Design Competition


The City of Santa Rosa, California is sponsoring an open one-stage competition to select a winning design for its revitalized Courthouse Square, and thereby, to select the team to implement this design. Courthouse Square is the “town center” of Santa Rosa and is the focal point of downtown. Its landscaped spaces and plaza areas provide for a range of activities, performances, and entertainment right in the heart of downtown. It attracts business activity and patrons, retail facilities and shoppers, performers and audiences. It is a distinctive place that residents can take pride in identifying as the center of their hometown. The new Courthouse Square will be at the heart of the City’s downtown revitalization program. The total project cost for design and construction is estimated at $7 million (in 2006 costs). Bill Liskamm, FAIA will serve as the Competition Advisor.

Five teams will be selected to participate in this competition following a review of Statements of Qualifications, which are due May 2, 2007. The competition will run from mid-May through August.
