RFQ/RFP Issued for Redevelopment of Village-Owned Sites 
January 22, 2020
The Village of Morton Grove has released a Request for Qualifications/Proposals (RFQ/RFP) for the redevelopment of two desirable Village-owned sites at 8500-8550 Lehigh Avenue and 8720-8726 Ferris Avenue. Both sites are located within a short walking distance to the Morton Grove Metra commuter rail station, making them prime opportunity sites for transit-oriented development. Interested parties can request the full RFQ/RFP on the Bids and Proposals webpage. A full press release is available for download.

April 20, 2020
Due to work and travel restrictions implemented in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the consequent uncertainties facing the US economy and its financial markets, the Village of Morton Grove is again extending the submittal deadline for the Lehigh/Ferris Subarea Transit-Oriented Development Request for Qualifications/Proposals to Monday, June 22, 2020, at 5:00 PM CST in order to provide developer teams with adequate time to perform due diligence and to prepare complete submissions. Teams that have already submitted proposals to the Village for consideration are welcome to submit an amended proposal or addendum prior to the revised deadline.

The deadline may be further postponed as the Village continues to evaluate and respond to this situation. We encourage interested parties to provide comment relating to the revised schedule of submittal as we approach the June 22nd deadline. If you have any questions relating to the RFQ/RFP or extension, please contact Zoe Heidorn at
