Request For Proposals

Date: July 14, 2017

To: Qualified Landscaping Contractors

Re: Request for Proposals for Landscape Construction and Maintenance Services for Landscape Improvements at Six Flags Parkway and Riverside Parkway interchanges off of Interstate 20 in Cobb County, Georgia

Project Overview:

The South Cobb Redevelopment Authority (SCRA) is requesting cost proposals and qualifications from landscaping contractors for installation and maintenance services associated with landscape improvements at Riverside Parkway Interchange and Six Flags Parkway Interchange adjacent to Interstate 20 in Cobb County. 

SCRA is requesting separate costs for each task item and for each interchange (four (4) total):

  • Landscape installation is referred to as Task A.
  • Landscape Maintenance services are referred to Task B.

The SCRA reserves the right to award the contract for only one or multiple interchanges and tasks. Additionally, the SCRA reserves the right to cancel the bid process at any time. Respondents are responsible for all costs incurred associated with the proposal submittal. Proposals that include participation by Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT)-registered Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) and participation of contractors physically located in Commission District 4 of Cobb County are highly desired.

At no time should any lane of traffic be closed without prior notification to SCRA. It is anticipated the installation and maintenance work can be completed without the closure of roadway lanes. If it is determined lane closure is needed, the contractor shall provide the appropriate traffic control measures and gain approval from GDOT prior to construction or maintenance activities.

The SCRA reserves the right to issue contracts for each task at each project location to a single contractor or multiple contractors. The SCRA will retain the right to terminate agreement(s) upon convenience.

Magnolia Crossing Property Listing

The property located at 490 Six Flags Drive, Austell, GA 30168, previously Magnolia Crossing Apartments, is currently for sale. This strategically located 12.42± acre redevelopment site is located 0.5± miles from the I-20/Six Flags Drive Exit 46A. Redevelopment alternatives include mixed-use, retail/commercial, office, medical, senior housing, public/private educational, workforce development, residential or religious institutions. The site is located in South Cobb, a diverse and easily accessible area of Cobb County, within walking distance of Six Flags Over Georgia, a 290-acre theme park featuring 35 rides, and a 7-acre water park.

The property is located near multifamily, single-family, and retail properties. There are approximately 39± acres of contiguous residential property (owned by one family for generations and improved with only 2 homes) located at the rear of the 12.42± acre property. This 39± acres is also presently on the market and could be combined with the 12.42± acre tract for a larger, 50± acre development project.

This property located at 490 Six Flags Drive, previously Magnolia Crossing Apartments, is being offered by the South Cobb Redevelopment Authority (SCRA) which is committed to driving redevelopment transformation of the South Cobb community. The SCRA acquired this older apartment property in 2015, vacated all residents and demolished all buildings on site in 2016. The site has been cleared of all buildings and parking lots, grassed, with a temporary detention pond constructed. The site is now fully prepared for redevelopment.

The goal of the SCRA is to sell the property for a redevelopment with uses that will further benefit the South Cobb Region.
