RFQL-2023-0076 Redevelopment of Vacant Land

Description: AH is utilizing a two-staged solicitation process that includes a Request-for-Qualification (RFQL) solicitation and shall thereafter have Respondents submit site specific proposals in response to a Request-for-
Proposals (RFP) issued by AH. This process will allow AH to first vet and preselect developers and development teams to form a bench of prequalified developers who will be available to respond quickly as RFP solicitations for various sites are issued. The redevelopment opportunities will be unique and require varying degrees of human and financial resources. Interested Respondents will be asked to consider several options for pre-qualification and may pre-qualify in some or all categories depending on their firm profiles, experience, and capability.

Respondents may submit credentials for prequalification in three categories (“the AH Development Categories”) under this RFQL:

  1. Complex mixed-use, mixed-income residential developments (examples include multiphase residential construction with a mix of uses including retail, structured parking, high-rise and mid-rise construction, and other high-density commercial-type development);
  2. Mixed-income residential developments with limited non-residential uses (examples include traditional low-rise and mid-rise residential construction, non-structured parking or single elevated decks, retail as an accessory use, and other low- to mid-density development); and
  3. Small, Women-owned and Minority-owned development firms who have been disadvantaged from responding to mixed-income development owing to well documented institutionalized, historical and financial barriers to participation.

AH is interested in identifying opportunities for these firms to grow their businesses through partnership opportunities with larger firms. Category 3 respondents must provide certification of their business status provided by a recognized industry association or governmental agency.

Within each category and dependent  on  the  desired  outcome  of  the development, AH may offer the opportunity  to  respond  to the RFP only to those Selected Respondents with experience in specific building types such as modular, timber and/or high rise construction. It is incumbent upon each developer or developer team to demonstrate their capabilities in diverse construction methods. Please note AH may consider proposals to create senior developments which may be 100% affordable.

In the RFQL, Respondents may submit in all categories and may submit as either a single developer and/or team of developers or as both. Respondents will be evaluated based on the application of weighted criteria applied to their proposal in light of a selected category or categories. To be considered under the Stage II RFP solicitation, Respondents must submit as the pre-approved entity and may not add new partners with one exception. Developers who pre-qualify in Categories 1 or 2 might consider but are not required to incorporate firms in Category 3 as a means to augment any equity in contracting requirements which will be a consideration for subsequent award of redevelopment sites that will be published via the RFP process. Developers who are preselected in this pool of developers may form such a joint venture or other legal partnership with other prequalified developers within the pool.

For the Request for Qualifications (RFQL) stage Respondents will be evaluated based on their financial and technical qualifications. AH will evaluate each Submission-of-Qualifications based on a weighted point system described in the subsequent “Evaluation Factors and Award” section.


The RFQL solicitation schedule is summarized  below.  AH reserves the right to modify this schedule at its sole discretion.

Following each of the RFP deadlines, AH will hold interviews with each qualified team that submits a response. After interviews with the shortlisted teams, AH will narrow the field to a small number of qualified finalists to then clarify and negotiate any and all aspects of their proposals, including preliminary budgets, pro formas and M/WBE commitments. AH will then make a recommendation to advance the selected proposal for approval by the Atlanta Housing Board of Commissioners.

Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA)

Description: We are the Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta, Georgia (Atlanta Housing or AH). We are looking for landlords to help us add affordable housing to the area within the University Choice Neighborhood (UCN) boundaries.

Landlords participating in HomeFlex have a contractually guaranteed source of reliable income and Atlanta Housing assistance regarding routine landlord/tenant issues. HomeFlex requirements are set forth in a HomeFlex Agreement between Atlanta Housing and landlords. Atlanta Housing’s Real Estate Group provides a rent subsidy, financial management, oversight and monitoring activities with respect to HomeFlex units in each HomeFlex rental community.  Atlanta Housing anticipates receiving applications from landlords of individual properties suitable to house families of 3 – 5 persons with a minimum of 8 units ready to lease. AH will also consider Landlords who can bundle several units in proposed clusters within the UCN boundaries.  Landlords who can provide residential units through existing housing or repurposing of other existing buildings located in the UCN Boundaries, and are qualified and interested in receiving HomeFlex for their rental units, may submit an application at any time. If an application is approved and provided funding through HomeFlex, then AH will execute a Commitment Letter for an initial term of anywhere from five (5) to Twenty (20) years with options for possible extensions.
