REQUEST FOR QUOTES (“RFQ”)

DEVELOPMENT PARTNER

DCHFA is seeking qualifications for a Development Partner (“Developer”) to acquire through a sale or ground lease the current DCHFA headquarters office at 815 Florida Avenue NW, Washington DC 20001 (“Property” or “Site”) for redevelopment in order to relocate the headquarters to another site and deliver a redevelopment project that achieves the mission of DCHFA. The Site is improved and consists of 29,372± square feet with a three-story “Class B” office building and is owner occupied. The building was constructed in 1983 and retrofitted for the Agency in 1998. The gross building area is approximately 30,000 square feet with approximately 77 on-site parking spaces in a three-story parking structure.

 

DCHFA envisions finding a new office location for the headquarters space which will be reduced to approximately 10,000 square feet to 15,000 square feet.

 

All interested partners (“Respondents”) shall submit the requisite information outlined in this Request for Qualifications (“RFQ”) to be shortlisted to respond to a Request for Proposal (“RFP”) to be issued later this year.
