RFP: Downtown Albany Demographic Study

RFP: Downtown Albany Demographic Study


The Downtown Albany Business Improvement District is seeking a firm to perform a District Demographic Study with submissions due at 2:00 PM on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 (please note this is an extension of the previous due date).

The goal of this initiative is to better understand Albany’s newest neighborhood – who is living, working and visiting here now and how does that compare to ten years ago – as Downtown has experienced in recent years more than $300 million in commercial development and a dramatic increase in vibrancy and foot traffic. There is currently $174 million under construction and another $93 million in the pipeline. This investment includes hundreds of new market-rate apartments in the city’s urban core, the recent opening of the 80,000-square-foot Albany Capital Center, a new hotel currently under construction, and large co-working spaces being added to our office landscape.
