VA seeks proposals to restore unused buildings

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has issued a Request for Proposals seeking developers interested in rehabilitating a number of the Milwaukee Soldiers Home District's unused historic buildings. The RFP utilizes EUL, Enhanced Use Leases. The structures called out in the RFP include Building 2 (Old Main,) Building 1 (Administration Building,) Building 14 (Catholic Chaplain's Quarters,) and Buildings 18, 19 and 62.

The VA Center is one of three created during the Lincoln Administration, just prior to his assassination. Soldiers from all American conflicts, except the American Revolution, are interred in the cemetery.

Responses to the RFP are due by 11:00 a.m. EST on May 18, 2016. --- EULs would allow the District's vacant buildings to be leased long-term, restored, and used to provide housing for veterans who are homeless or who are at risk of homelessness. At this time, the VA believes Enhanced Use Leases are the most promising way to restore and return these unused buildings to the service of veterans.

A link in the Landmark Hunter listing for the Northwestern Branch listing will open the RFP.
