The University of Missouri-Kansas City has taken a new step toward building a conservatory after a previous plan was halted last year, according to the Kansas City Business Journal.
According to a Request for Interest released Monday, UMKC is looking at its options for a public-private partnership as well as traditional development of a new facility for its Conservatory of Music and Dance and the Department of Theatre — either on campus or off campus.
The RFI specifically seeks firms that can provide several different development services, including:
- Securing the land.
- Securing incentives and public or private funding.
- Providing design and construction services.
- Developing alternatives for long-term ground leases and land purchases as well as options for a public-private partnership for financing and facilities operations.
