Site Adjacent to University of Guelph School of
Hospitality and Tourism Management
|September 2004 - Land Lease and Development Proposals are invited from
qualified proponents for a proposal to develop a hotel and conference facility
on a University-owned site in the City of Guelph Ontario Canada, a prosperous
and growing diversified-economy community located approximately one hour
drive west of Toronto.
Previous experience with major hotel and conference facility projects is a prerequisite and shall be demonstrated by the proponents in the first stage of the Request for Proposals. The University favors increased conference facilities for the adjacent Research Park tenants and others, and wishes to explore the advantages of a relationship between the hotel and the internationally acclaimed University of Guelph School of Hospitality and Tourism Management. The University further wishes to explore the advantages to each of a relationship between the hotel and conference facility and an adjacent or combined fitness facility.
The land will be available for lease for a term and a land lease payment
to be subsequently agreed upon in the Stage Two proposal. Willingness to
share in some of the upside potential which this parcel presents will also
be advantageous. The land has been designated in the City's Official Plan
to permit a hotel use. Zoning will be sought by the proponents in concert
with the University.
Requirements for Stage Two proposals will be available on or before October 29, 2004, and will include financial details and arrangements, scheduling details, concept plans, and architectural renderings. It is anticipated that formal contracts would be executed in February 2005.
Submissions of Stage One Land Lease and Development Proposals based on directions contained in the Invitation to Submit Proposals must be filed by 4:00 p.m. EDST on October 4, 2004 with:
The UNIVERSITY of GUELPH
