Missouri State Penitentiary Redevelopment RFQ

The City of Jefferson is seeking a visionary partner to be the master developer of a project to transform the former Missouri State Penitentiary (“MSP”)site into a dynamic, mixed-use development.  The Missouri State Penitentiary was in operation from 1836 to 2004, and was the oldest operating prison west of the Mississippi River.  The MSP Redevelopment Project, because of its history and location, represents a rare opportunity to create a special community hub that will enhance the experience of living and working in, or just traveling through, the City’s downtown for residents and visitors alike.  This RFQ is the first step in a two-step process for selection of a master developer. The second step will invite selected RFQ respondents to submit a detailed redevelopment proposal for evaluation and selection by the Missouri State Penitentiary Community Partners and the City Council.
