The City of Fort Myers is seeking bids on McCollum Hall, located at 2701 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, as a part of an ongoing effort to foster community redevelopment along the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard corridor. The McCollum Hall Request for Proposal (RFP) is now available through the City of Fort Myers purchasing website. Interested parties can register with Planet Bids through the City’s purchasing website at https://www.cityftmyers.com/1114/eProcurement.


McCollum Hall is a popular local historic treasure. Built in 1938, it was the local stop on the Chitlin Circuit, the nickname given to segregated venues where famous African American artists and entertainers performed. Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, B. B. King, Count Basie, and other great talents brought world-class entertainment to Fort Myers in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. Following decades of disrepair, McCollum Hall already has received an exterior renovation, and this RFP will bring about the final phase of restoration.


McCollum Hall is located on the Corner of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and Cranford Avenue, at 2701 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, Fort Myers, Florida 33916.
