That as the PRPA seeks to determine the current market values for both freehold and leasehold industrial and commercial lands in the Prince Rupert area.
That's the mission statement from a Request for Information from the Port, Metlakatla and Lax Kw'alaams currently listed with BC Bid, with the proponents noting how they plan to approach the requests from any respondents.
This RFI is not part of a competitive bidding process, a call for tenders, or a request for binding offers, and no contractual or other legal obligations shall arise between the Requesters and any Respondent as a result of the issuance of this RFI or the submission of any response to this RFI, until and unless the Requesters and a Respondent enter into a contract.
Towards the work to be taken on, the Port and its partners are looking for the following:
Providing current market values, considering both freehold and leasehold value, as defined by the Appraisal Institute of Canada, for industrial and/or commercial lands in Prince Rupert
Comparison to value of similar uses for both sale and lease in the Prince Rupert area and similarly used lands in other BC port, waterfront industrial/commercial properties.
The call for response ends on January 31st.
You can review the full RFI package from the BC Bid website.
