Update on Request for Proposals for Hotel/Conference Center at UT Research Park

In April 2023, a Request for Information (RFI) was issued for a proposed hotel/conference center development at UT Research Park. After receiving the responses in June 2023 and completing an evaluation of those responses, it was determined there was a high level of interest in the project.

A Request for Proposals to solicit, evaluate and select a developer is being finalized, and we are gathering additional information on the building height guidelines related to Alcoa Highway's designation as a State Scenic Highway.

Since UT Research Park is affiliated with the University, we are coordinating plans for issuing the RFP with other UT projects. We anticipate issuing the RFP in November 2023.
