Current Procurement Opportunities

RFP 18-008 100 Houston St Reuse


Release on March 28, 2018

For the last several months, the Buda City Council has discussed what to do with the current city hall, city hall annex, and library once the new City Hall/Library complex opens this summer. All three facilities are located in downtown Buda within the Main Street District. After evaluating different options, the City of Buda will release a Request for Proposals (RFP) on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, to solicit ideas for reuse of the current city hall and city hall annex properties. A RFP will not be issued for the current library as the city is considering reusing this facility as staff offices for the Tourism and Main Street departments along with a space for community organizations to gather.

About the City Hall Annex (100 Houston Street)

This approximately 7,500 square foot, two-story facility was once a sign shop and hardware store before serving as office space for the City of Buda Police and Planning/Engineering departments. The space was remodeled in approximately 2012. The City is soliciting proposals to either lease or purchase this facility.

**UPDATE**  Additional pre-bid conference to take place on May 15th, 2018 in the City Council Chambers located at 121 Main St, Buda, TX.  Facility walk-through will take place at that time.
