RFP Title: Eastham House Sale or Lease RFP (Request for Proposal)
Contact: Ms. Pat Hilliard, Procurement Manager




The City of Harrisonburg is marketing for sale or lease a three story building (Eastham House) and
property consisting of approximately 5,000 square feet of commercial business space and property from Main Street curb to ten (10) feet west of the rear of the back porch located within the City's downtown business district. It is the intent that the occupant(s) of the Eastham House shall be non-profit organization(s). Unlike a traditional sale of City-owned property, this RFP approach will provide the Proposer(s) an opportunity to present plans for the use(s) and redevelopment of the property.

Prior to final sale or lease, the Harrisonburg City Council will consider the disposition of the property
after conducting a public hearing and after mutually agreeing upon terms and conditions of reuse and redevelopment of the property through a negotiated contract with the future owner(s) or tenant(s).
Please note that a final sales contract or lease must be approved by a public vote of the Harrisonburg City Council.
