Public notice is hereby given that Wichita State University (WSU), directly or through its affiliate corporation Wichita State Innovation Alliance, Inc., intends to lease, subject to all required state approvals, up to four acres of real property located on the Wichita State University’s campus designated as the “Innovation Campus,” for the private development and operation of a partnership building or buildings. The university is interested in leasing such ground to any individual, organization, or entity whose presence on campus would advance the university’s applied learning vision or its mission as an educational, cultural, and economic driver for Kansas and the greater public good. The university intends to lease such space for a mutually agreeable period of time up to sixty years, but extended terms and renewal options would be considered. Interested tenants must be willing to be a good fit with the university’s educational mission and identify anticipated benefits to the university, its students, and the WSU community (i.e. applied learning, joint research, faculty start-up, WSU curriculum or program support, etc.), and must agree to the essential ground lease terms and restrictive covenants. Interested tenants will be evaluated on: proposal terms, demonstrated benefit to WSU, design concepts, financial stability, and proposed use. Interested tenants will be required to construct adjacent and adequate surface parking that will not be included in the leased ground. Rental rate shall be based on fair market value and negotiable based on term of lease, purpose/use of building improvement, and benefit to the university. The university will consider serious offers and inquiries with detailed proposal terms from any financially qualified individual, group, organization.
