                    Research Park Campus Master Plan and
                Conceptual Master Plan for Development Districts
                                          PART I

                                     BACKGROUND

       McPherson Implementing Local Redevelopment Authority (MILRA) is seeking
proposals for the preparation of a Research Park Campus Master Plan and Conceptual
Master Plan for Development Districts for the reuse and redevelopment of Fort
McPherson, a 488-acre military facility located entirely within the city limits of Atlanta,
Georgia. Fort McPherson became the first permanent Army installation in the southeast
on May 4, 1889. It is named in honor of Major General James Birdseye McPherson, a
Union army general killed near the post during the Battle of Atlanta, July 22, 1864.
Throughout its century of service to the country, the post was used as a general hospital
during World Wars I & II, a prisoner of war camp, a training area for the Civilian
Conservation Corps and a separation center. Today, historic Fort McPherson is home to
Headquarters, U.S. Army Forces Command, Third U.S. Army and the U.S. Army
Reserve Command. The historic district of the post sits on 33 acres of land. The 40
buildings that comprise the historic district are listed on the National Register of Historic
Places. The property has 95 acres dedicated to administrative use, 36 acres of housing
and an 18-hole golf course. Two Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority
(MARTA) stations serve the property – (1) Oakland City and (2) Lakewood/Ft.
McPherson. The base has 2,209,558 square feet of building space including 102 family
units. Utilities serving the property are not privatized. Fort McPherson has the required
communications infrastructure to support a major communications hub for the
Department of Defense. The local Defense Information Systems Network Video Service
Global Hub provides support for over 10,000 annual video teleconferences around the
world. The neighboring City of East Point has a low per-capita income and suffers high
unemployment rates. The final closing of Fort McPherson will result in a negative
economic impact to this economically depressed community.

       Fort McPherson is being closed under the Base Realignment and Closure Act
(BRAC) of 2005. According to the Base Redevelopment and Realignment Manual
published March 1, 2006 by the Department of Defense (DoD), the base closure and
redevelopment process is affected by many federal real property and environmental laws
and regulations, along with volumes of implementing guidance.

        The McPherson Planning LRA served as the primary link between the DoD, the
installation, the community, and Federal and State agencies for all base closure matters.
The MPLRA was “the single entity responsible for identifying local redevelopment needs


                                                                                            2
and preparing a redevelopment plan for the Military Department to consider in the
disposal of installation property. In this context, the term “redevelopment plan” means a
plan that (1) represents local consensus on the redevelopment with respect to the
installation and (2) provides for redevelopment of the property that becomes available
because of the installation closure or realignment.”

        The Base Redevelopment and Realignment Manual explains that the BRAC law
prescribes a tightly drawn timeline for the MPLRA to plan. The needs of the local
homeless must be addressed during the planning process, and community consensus on
base redevelopment is essential for success. The redevelopment plan is not just a vision
and blueprint for the future. It also serves as a major decisional input for the Military
Department’s NEPA analysis. In parallel with this outreach, the MPLRA must determine
feasible uses for the base that consider the market attraction, physical and environmental
conditions of the property and public needs. The MILRA will enter into legally binding
agreements to assist the homeless entities identified and recognized in the screening
process, contingent upon Military Department decisions on property disposal. The
redevelopment plan was completed and submitted to the U. S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development (HUD) on September 21, 2007. HUD is currently reviewing the
applications and approval is anticipated.

Extensive pre-planning visioning and economic analysis consulting services were
performed for the MPLRA under a “Phase One” contract. These services will be
referred to as “Phase One” in this document. Phase One services included the defining
and development of goals and objectives, compilation and analysis of existing data and
plans, analysis of the implications of other completed studies, preparation of a detailed
economic and market analysis and establishment of a pre-planning vision and guiding
principles. The data compiled in the “Phase One” report is presented in a document
entitled “Visioning & Economic Analysis – Fort McPherson” dated December 11, 2006
prepared by the PBS&J-Matrix Design Group Team.

.”Phase Two” of the overall mission was to create and implement a public participation
process or “outreach”, assist in and coordinate the consideration of homeless interests and
state and local interests, apply visioning/guiding principles to reconcile and apply all or a
portion of economic analysis data from Phase One for the identification of balanced,
economically and environmentally feasible land uses and prepare a comprehensive land
use plan for Fort McPherson. The plan would include, but not be limited to: (1) a
summary of job creation opportunities by type; (2) a land use plan with alternatives; (3) a
transportation and circulation plan; (4) a public improvements plan addressing open
spaces; (5) planning level cost estimates; and (6) an urban design plan addressing the
relationship of the on-base reuse strategy to the neighboring communities. Deliverable
products include: (1) technical memorandum summarizing alternative reuse development
scenarios in graphic and written form; (2) study model illustrating alternatives; (3)
assessment matrix and technical memorandum that identify assessment criteria and
summarize the results of assessments; (4) preliminary report summarizing the
preliminary draft strategic reuse plan; (5) draft strategic reuse plan report in written and
graphic form; (6) following approval by the MPLRA and MILRA, a final strategic reuse



                                                                                            3
plan report for the reuse and redevelopment of Fort McPherson.

The McPherson “Outreach and Landuse Plan” was prepared by the HOK Planning Group
and approved unanimously at the September 11, 2007 meeting of the MPLRA. The
MPLRA Staff worked steadily to complete the necessary documents following Board
approval and successfully submitted the full application, including the Landuse Plan to
HUD on September 21, one day prior to the BRAC deadline. HUD is currently
reviewing the applications and approval is anticipated.

An Operating and Infrastructure Analysis was completed that provided (a) an analysis of
all of the factors relating to the operation, rehabilitation and capital improvement of the
488-acre Fort McPherson facility as set out in the Outreach and Land Use Plan prepared
in 2007; (b) an analysis of the cost effectiveness of demolition, potential for reuse, water
system improvements, sewer system improvements, storm system improvements, cost to
construct new systems, asbestos removal costs, costs of bringing existing buildings up to
current code and marketability, retrofitting to meet the Americans with Disabilities
(ADA) requirements, road improvements, road access, new roads, landscaping,
environmental and other considerations of placing military facilities into use by the
private sector; (c) a review and analysis of existing infrastructure to determine whether it
would be possible to reuse such infrastructure; and (d) advise on the need to either
replace or modify such infrastructure. Specific tasks included:

          Inspection and analysis of specific buildings and structures.
          Preparation of a conditions assessment report identifying existing physical
           deterioration and/or physical/functional obsolescence for specified buildings
           possibly including historic buildings or structures.
          Preparation of a cost to repair or cure analysis for specified buildings.
          Preparation of a life-cycle analysis of operating costs for the facility and
           specified buildings.
          Cost estimates for specific road, road access, water system, sewer system,
           storm water and other existing and future infrastructure repair and
           improvements.
          Coordination with State or other engineering and environmental consultants
           including those representing the Board of Regents of the University System of
           Georgia and the City of Atlanta.
          Advice on qualitative objectives to improve quality of life and context
           sensitive design elements and prepare a set of guidelines, with cost estimates
           as necessary, to address building massing, streetscape hierarchy, streetscape
           elements and other image improvements.
          Follow-up coordination with Business Plan Consultant to ensure that accurate
           cost data is used appropriately and effectively in the Business Plan.
          Follow-up, as necessary, in the cost estimations for the overall development of
           the EDC Parcel.

The data compiled for the “Operating and Infrastructure Analysis” report is presented in a
document entitled “Fort McPherson Operating and Infrastructure Analysis” dated


                                                                                           4
October 14, 2008 prepared by the PBS&J/Matrix Design Group/HOK Team.

Federal regulations cite that the Secretary of Defense may transfer real property and
personal property to an LRA for purposes of job generation on the subject installation.
Such a transfer is identified as an Economic Development Conveyance (EDC). An LRA
is the only entity able to receive property under an EDC. A properly completed
application will be used to decide whether an LRA will be eligible for an EDC. If
eligible, the terms and conditions of the EDC will be negotiated between the Secretary
and the LRA. A properly prepared Economic Development Conveyance Application
must contain a Business Plan for the EDC parcel.



                                        PART II

                         THE CONSULTING ASSIGNMENT

The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to identify, select and engage a
qualified and capable firm or firms to prepare a Research Park Campus Master Plan
and Conceptual Master Plan for Development Districts for Fort McPherson, a 488-
acre military facility located in southwest Atlanta, Georgia. The written report will
incorporate “campus” programming; integrate existing McPherson Reuse Plan elements;
create a “Research Park Campus Master Plan”; establish transportation and land use
framework plans; prepare phasing and parcelization plans; reevaluate financial
projections; and provide similar elements, at a conceptual level, for surrounding
development districts. The consultant will also provide technical support for the
preparation of a zoning blueprint and development agreements. The consultant will
prepare an Economic Development Application for submission to the US Government.

The MILRA previously retained a consultant to prepare a Business Plan that would
provide an analysis of all of the factors relating to the EDC Application that would be
given consideration by the Army. It provides an analysis of all of the factors relating to
development timelines, phasing and cash flow, marketability and feasibility of the
proposed uses for the facility and investment and financing strategies. Studies include
preparation of a detailed development timeline that includes cash flow analysis for all
marketing districts; analysis of the market and the prospects for redeveloping the total
property in accordance with the Land Use Plan and preparation of a detailed investment
and financing strategy that includes both the private and public sectors. In order to
address overall questions regarding phasing, infrastructure, sizing of the EDC parcel and
value enhancement, the recent Operating and Infrastructure Analysis focused on all
buildings, structures and infrastructure on the Fort McPherson facility. The Business
Plan supplements, complements and completes this work by inserting the appropriate
marketing, financial and revenue data to arrive at a discounted cash flow value estimate
for all marketing districts and parcels. This analysis includes both the EDC parcel and
the non-EDC balance of the facility in order to address the specific issues of (1) phasing
of marketing districts; (2) the sizing of the EDC parcel; and, most importantly, (3) to



                                                                                             5
estimate the value enhancement created by the Bio-Science development of the EDC
parcel. Additionally, the LRA will use the analysis in “determining whether to pursue
PBCs or developer set-asides on parks/open space/recreation and education parcels” as
specified in the MILRA/U. S. Army Memorandum of Understanding. Some specific
tasks included:

          Analyze and refine proposed marketing districts for the entire Fort McPherson
           facility including a separate marketing district analysis for the EDC parcel.
           Analyze the EDC footprint and justify the parcel sizing or recommend an
           alternative sizing. Analyze the income potential of utility privatization for
           possible inclusion in the EDC application.
          Summarize the current real estate market conditions for the neighborhood, the
           City of Atlanta, and the region and provide an estimate of jobs that will be lost
           as a result of the closure of Fort McPherson. Analyze the neighborhood
           options for economic development. Support this estimate with relevant data
           including forecasts of population, building permit, leasing, and other data.
          Prepare a development timetable and preliminary phasing plan for all
           marketing districts based on the projected availability of property and ability
           to achieve cash flow and generate short and long-term jobs. Include an
           analysis of how revenues from residential property in each district support the
           creation of jobs.
          Refine existing market analysis and develop an absorption schedule for all
           marketing districts.
          Conduct a detailed fiscal analysis that considers cash flow, annual revenues
           and costs, cumulative revenue and costs, off-site infrastructure costs, and
           product absorption for all marketing districts by year. Analyzed expenses
           should include, but not be limited to, management, leasing, common area
           maintenance, reserves for replacement for structural components and long-
           lived items, preparation costs, demolition, infrastructure maintenance and
           repair, asbestos encapsulation or remediation, ADA compliance and
           environmental costs. Summary reports shall be included for each marketing
           district, the overall facility and the EDC parcel listing building#, use, area in
           square feet, forecasted vacancy/occupancy and related costs. Market
           supported capitalization, discount and vacancy rates will be provided with
           estimated percentage for developer’s profit. Cash flow analysis shall include
           a reversionary estimate in the final year using a market supported
           capitalization rate. Cash flow schedule will be reported, at a minimum, for the
           overall facility, the EDC parcel and, additionally, for each marketing district
           and by building for a term of 15 years and, alternatively, for a market-
           supported term estimated by the consultant. Separate spreadsheets shall be
           prepared showing absorption, reserves, expenses, construction improvements,
           demolition and other costs presented by amount and per square foot. Values
           estimated by discounted cash flows shall be estimated for the anticipated EDC
           parcel, for the Fort McPherson facility as a whole and separately for each
           marketing district on the facility and each building located thereon.



                                                                                          6
          Develop an investment and financing strategy that includes grants, local
           funding options such as the tax allocation district, bonds, taxation, licensing,
           interim leasing, permitting, impact and other fees, privatization and private
           investment. Estimate the level of state and local investment overall and the
           relative probability of participation.
          Demonstrate the financial feasibility of the overall development including the
           off-site infrastructure requirements.
          Prepare a fair market value estimate for each of the marketing districts that
           comprise the facility and separate fair market value estimates for the
           anticipated EDC parcel and the non-EDC parcel Propose an appropriate and
           feasible strategy for using available BRAC transfer tools. Using cash flow
           analysis, demonstrate any added or enhanced value to the adjoining non-EDC
           parcels by the LRA’s ownership and development of the EDC parcel and the
           overall benefit to the U. S. Army.
          Coordinate with Operating and Infrastructure Analysis consultant to ensure
           that accurate cost data is used appropriately and effectively in the Business
           Plan.

The Business Plan reviews the financial feasibility of the proposed reuse, including such
items as phasing, absorption rates, carrying costs, marketing costs, administrative costs
and overall financial feasibility of the project. The Business Plan also suggests and
explains financing vehicles for redevelopment including EDA grants, bond issues,
property sales, leases and TAD financing. Specifically, the analysis assumes that the
property will be developed in accordance with the Business Plan, consistent with the
Land Use Plan, and arrive at a targeted net financial return from the sale, leasing and
operation of the facilities’ real property assets. This will be achieved by integrating the
physical plan, financing terms and investment criteria into a series of cash flow
projections for each of the marketing districts. These projections estimate the total
returns to developers or investors over an assumed future holding period. The consultant
has measured the level of assumed risk that is required to develop and complete the
project according to the Land Use Plan considering market conditions, lease-up terms,
construction costs and financial terms.

An Operating and Infrastructure Analysis for the entire 488-acre Fort McPherson facility
was also completed to support the Business Plan. This report includes (a) an analysis of
all of the factors relating to the operation, rehabilitation and capital improvement of the
488-acre Fort McPherson facility as set out in the Outreach and Land Use Plan prepared
in 2007; (b) an analysis of the cost effectiveness of demolition, potential for reuse, water
system improvements, sewer system improvements, storm system improvements, cost to
construct new systems, asbestos removal costs, costs of bringing existing buildings up to
current code and marketability, retrofitting to meet the Americans with Disabilities
(ADA) requirements, road improvements, road access, new roads, landscaping,
environmental and other considerations of placing military facilities into use by the
private sector; (c) a review and analysis of existing infrastructure to determine whether it
would be possible to reuse such infrastructure; and (d) advises the MILRA on the need to
either replace or modify such infrastructure. The Operating and Infrastructure Analysis


                                                                                           7
report provides comprehensive cost data, market data and recommendations and
incorporates the anticipated integrated infrastructure requirements for the EDC parcel and
application. The Business Plan incorporates all data and analysis from the Operating and
Infrastructure Analysis report and provides additional data and analysis that will
complement and supplement a final EDC application to the U. S. Army to purchase, at
fair market value, the EDC parcel, as determined in the Business Plan.

The Scope of Work for the Business Plan included tasks related to the preparation of an
Economic Development Conveyance Application. In cooperation with the US
Government, it was agreed that the submission of an EDC Application would be
postponed until the completion of the Research Park Campus Master Plan and
Conceptual Master Plan for Development Districts. As a result, the selected consultant
may need to coordinate with the Business Plan consulting firm to ensure that all elements
are in place for completing the EDC Application.

The work being requested under this Business Plan RFP will not duplicate any work
previously performed under the Visioning and Economic Analysis or Outreach and Land
Use Plan reports prepared in 2007 nor will it duplicate any work performed under the
Operating and Infrastructure Analysis or work being performed under NEPA by the U.
S. Army.

The successful respondent will demonstrate the ability to complete the attached Scope of
Work in a manner acceptable to the MILRA. Although the Scope of Work is detailed,
the MILRA is open to creative suggestions for how to achieve its goals.

The MILRA will attempt to negotiate a binding contract for the Scope of Work with the
successful respondent promptly after the proposal submittal date. It is anticipated that the
contract will require the successful respondent to complete the Consulting Assignment
including all required deliverables no later than Wednesday, August 18, 2010 and
continue to participate in follow-up coordination as necessary.

                                   Attachment A

                     FORT MCPHERSON
               Research Park Campus Master Plan
         Conceptual Master Plan for Development Districts
                                    Scope of Work
The McPherson Implementing LRA proposes to retain a consultant to prepare a written
report and Research Park Master Plan that will incorporate “campus” programming;
consider and integrate the existing McPherson Reuse Plan elements; create a “Research
Park Campus Master Plan” establishing transportation and land use framework plans
within which proposed uses will be developed over the build out period for the
development including a phasing and parcelization plan; and reevaluate financial
projections and related information previously prepared as part of the Business Plan and
other reuse planning activities. The consultant will also prepare a Conceptual Master
Plan for the development districts surrounding the Research Park within the 488-acre
facility. The Conceptual Master Plan for the other development districts will provide
similar elements, at a conceptual level, for specific tasks and fully developed elements for
other tasks. Finally, the consultants will provide detailed recommendations for the
implementation of a property disposition strategy responsive to the new EDC legal
authority and Army requirements. For all tasks, the consultant will analyze and address
the relevant data and conclusions within the existing McPherson plans and studies and
incorporate the necessary elements of the Visioning and Economic Analysis, the
Operating and Infrastructure Analysis, the Business Plan and the EDC Application.

The work being requested under this SOW will not duplicate any work previously
performed under the Visioning and Economic Analysis or Outreach and Comprehensive
Reuse Planning reports prepared in 2006 and 2007 nor will it duplicate any work
performed under the SOW for the Operating Plan, Business Plan or work being
performed under NEPA by the U. S. Army.

The MPLRA previously retained a consultant to prepare an Operating and Infrastructure
Analysis for the entire 488-acre Fort McPherson facility. This report included (a) an
analysis of all of the factors relating to the operation, rehabilitation and capital
improvement of the 488-acre Fort McPherson facility as set out in the Reuse Plan
prepared in 2007; (b) an analysis of the cost effectiveness of demolition, potential for
reuse, water system improvements, sewer system improvements, storm system


                                                                                         14
improvements, cost to construct new systems, asbestos removal costs, costs of bringing
existing buildings up to current code and marketability, retrofitting to meet the
Americans with Disabilities (ADA) requirements, road improvements, road access, new
roads, landscaping, environmental and other considerations of placing military facilities
into use by the private sector; (c) a review and analysis of existing infrastructure to
determine whether it would be possible to reuse such infrastructure; and (d) advice to the
MPLRA on the need to either replace or modify such infrastructure. The Operating and
Infrastructure Analysis report also provided comprehensive cost data, market data and
recommendations in response to the SOW and incorporated the anticipated integrated
infrastructure requirements for the EDC parcel and application.

The Business Plan incorporated the analysis and data from all marketing districts
provided in the Operating and Infrastructure Analysis report and provided additional data
and analysis to complement and supplement a final EDC application to the U. S. Army.
The McPherson Business Plan provided an analysis of all of the factors relating to the
EDC Application that would be given consideration by the Army. It provided an analysis
of all of the factors relating to preliminary development timelines and phasing, cash flow,
marketability and feasibility of the proposed uses for the facility and investment and
financing strategies for purposes of inclusion in the EDC Application. Studies included
preparation of a cash flow analysis for all marketing districts and analysis of the market
and the prospects for redeveloping the total property in accordance with the Land Use
Plan and preparation of a detailed investment and financing strategy that includes both
the private and public sectors. In order to address overall questions the Operating and
Infrastructure Analysis focused on all buildings, structures and infrastructure on the Fort
McPherson facility. The Business Plan supplements, complements and completes this
work by inserting the appropriate marketing, financial and revenue data to arrive at a
discounted cash flow value estimate for all marketing districts and parcels. This analysis
included both the EDC parcel and the non-EDC balance of the facility in order to address
the specific issues of (1) preliminary analysis of phasing of marketing districts; (2)
preliminary estimates of the sizing of the EDC parcel; and, most importantly, (3) to
estimate the value enhancement created by the Bio-Science development of the EDC
parcel.

The successful respondent will perform these specific tasks:
