O’FALLON, Ill. – The city of O’Fallon has issued a request for proposals to purchase the City Hall Annex property at 200 South Lincoln in order to remodel or redevelop the property.
The deadline to submit proposals is 5 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 27.
The 1.4-acre site is in the heart of Downtown O’Fallon. The city is seeking someone who will either purchase and remodel the existing building or purchase and demolish the existing structure and construct a new building that will integrate well into the neighborhood. Two-story structures with commercial space on the first floor and residential units on the second floor are being welcome, as are one-story commercial structures.
The annex building was originally a bank and was constructed in four phases from around 1959 to 1978. The existing building has been partially occupied since being acquired by the city in 2007 and has been used primarily for storage, offices, training spaces and conference/meeting spaces. A portion of the building has been remodeled, but the majority is in disrepair and in need of significant renovations.
The city has a desire to add more public parking to accommodate the future growth of Downtown and said new construction on the annex site will likely increase parking demand in the area. Potential developers are being urged to add public parking on this site and/or the land immediately west of City Hall.
