Request for Proposals

The City of Tucson Housing and Community Development Department is requesting proposals for the development of 14 homes, formerly known as Menlo Park Place, located at 422-468 N. Westmoreland Avenue, just south of St. Mary’s Road.   The awarded Developer will be responsible for the completion of new homes. While existing, City-approved, site-specific home plans are available, the City will consider all options, including new design and plans, provided a minimum of 12 homes are developed and marketed.

There is no cost for the land, but the developer must have the ability to finance construction of housing, which does include Davis-Bacon wage rates. The developer is responsible for marketing and selling these homes to households whose income is at or below 80% area median income.  HUD-approved income qualification and pre-purchase counseling may be done by the developer or through a non-profit partner agency.

Please provide the following to be considered:

1. AZROC Business name and license number.
2. Summary of prior similar projects.
3. Line of Credit for construction of housing
4. Per unit cost breakdown (Include plans if different from original)
5. Marketing strategy
6. Income qualification and housing counseling plan or agreement


A pre-bid meeting will be held Friday, November 15, 2013 @ 9:00 am, 320 N. Commerce Park Loop, in the Santa Cruz Room.  Attendance is mandatory for your proposal to be considered. The formal ‘Request For Proposal’ (RFP) will be distributed to all interested parties at this time.

Questions concerning this process are to be directed by e-mail to Tom Ingram at Tom.Ingram@tucsonaz.gov
