  • Post of the Day - Working With Or Finding Private Developers For Housing Redevelopment

    There are several old blocks with 80% degraded structures in our city, we are looking at re-development on a block scale. We have envisioned some mixed use development in a few of these. Has anyone used an RFP or other method to find a developer for these types of projects? I had this in mind: The City would consider doing the teardowns and lot acquisitions and sell it for a reasonable price working with the developer on more dense housing. The water, sewer and roads are already there. Some of the blocks adjacent blocks are commercial already, so it would sort of be a mixed use.
