BOCA RATON BEACH & PARK DISTRICT
REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF 212 ACRES OF RECREATIONAL PROPERTY
The request for information (RFI) is made by the Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District (District), a special taxing district located in Boca Raton, FL. With this RFI the District solicits information from all qualified respondents who wish to be considered as a provider to the services described herein. Qualified respondents are encouraged and invited to respond to this RFI.
In February 2018, the District purchased 214 acres of property located in the Boca Teeca subdivision which was formerly known as the Ocean Breeze Golf Course. The District purchased the eastern portion of the property outright. The District entered into an interlocal agreement with the City of Boca Raton to purchase the western portion of the property and makes annual payments for the bond that the City utilized for the purchase. The District worked with a professional golf course designer to develop a golf course facility for the property. In October 2020 the City of Boca Raton was gifted an 18-hole golf course in close proximity to the property. The District is now reconsidering how best to utilize the property at Boca Teeca to provide recreational amenities to the residents of the City and the District.
Purpose of RFI
The District seeks information on potential development and/or operational ideas for the Boca Teeca property. The District believes that recreational amenities will be imperative for the residents and a revitalization of this property will significantly enhance redevelopment efforts in the northern portion of Boca Raton. The District is interested in hearing from a broad range of prospective respondents. All ideas are welcome for this incredible opportunity to create a landmark park in the heart of Boca Raton, Florida.
The enabling legislation of the District restricts the ability to sell or lease any portion of the property. All proposals should consider this restriction.
Respondents should consider sustainability, traffic, accessibility, and impacts to the neighborhood with innovative concepts that provide superior recreation opportunities and green space preservation.
