URW challenges bidders to consider ‘socially conscious consumers’

By Charlotte Turner |

Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield Airports (URW Airports) has announced two new retail leasing opportunities at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Terminals 1 and 2. 

 

Interestingly, to better serve today’s socially conscious consumers, URW is challenging bidders to deliver innovative concepts that highlight a commitment to sustainability and positive social impact.

 

URW and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) are looking for a local, national or international branded convenience store concept offering ‘value-priced’ food and beverages, prepared, and grab-and-go items, located in Terminal 1 arrivals pre-security.

 

For the second area advertised URW is looking for a specialty retailer; one that can offer a single recognisable brand or a shop-in-shop multi-brand retail concept within Terminal 2 departures post-security.

LOCAL, DIVERSE PARTICIPATION

“To maximise local, diverse participation at LAX, URW invites all businesses to submit proposals, including small, local, and certified Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (ACDBE) businesses,” stated URW.

 

URW said that its ‘industry recognised competitive bidding process’ is tailor-made to promote participation with a transparent scoring system that balances commercial and customer value with overall program goals.

LAX's Terminal 2 and 3 Modernization Project is a $1.86 billion project that will modernize and upgrade the terminals and connect them to the Tom Bradley International Terminal.

LAX’s Terminal 2 and 3 $1.86bn Modernisation Project is due to complete in 2023, easing congestion and enhancing connectivity both pre- and post-security.

“URW’s simplified process ensures accessible bidding for businesses of all kinds: lower bid deposits, waiving requirements for renderings and printed proposals, and ongoing resources, education, and networking opportunities offered through its award-winning Advance Network initiative,” it added.

 

Small, local, and minority-owned businesses are also invited to join URW’s Diverse Supplier Network at URWairports.com/diversity.

 

The deadline for proposals is Thursday, 7 July at 12 pm PDT. Interested parties can submit questions for clarification in writing by Tuesday, 24 May at 12 pm PDT.
