    Old Tucson Notice for Submission of Qualifications

    Property Formerly known as Old Tucson Studios

    Pima County (“County”), is seeking Statements of Qualifications (”SOQ”) for an experienced Attractions Operator (“Operator”) to rehabilitate, repair, manage, operate and maintain the Property formerly known as Old Tucson Studios (the “Property”) located in Tucson, Arizona in a manner consistent with the County vision. 

    County’s vision is to incentivize, through a multi-year Operating Lease Agreement with the option to renew for additional year terms, the development and operation of the Property to provide certain public recreational components that will be operated in a manner, and with use fees, for use by the general public. County envisions a vacation destination that will attract families and companies from outside the community as well as an entertainment and recreational destination providing refreshing new opportunities for local residents. The intention is to provide flexible uses that promote unique economic development outcomes compatible with the neighboring area while honoring the history of the Property. Concepts might include a visitor’s center, boutique hotel, restaurants, and activities such as glamping, camping (with or without equestrian use), with retail and entertainment activities.
