RFQ/RFP Process

Request for Qualifications/Proposals

Mayfair Site Aerial MapThe City of El Cerrito undertook a two-step qualifications and proposal process to narrow down experienced development teams for the development of three parcels with a combined size of approximately 68,500 square feet. The parcels are located in a prime location for transit-oriented development (TOD), at the major intersection of San Pablo Avenue and Cutting Boulevard adjacent to the Del Norte BART station, one block from Interstate 80 and the Cutting Boulevard on and off-ramps. The City asked respondents to submit development concepts that conform with the San Pablo Avenue Specific Plan and provide5-6 stories of mixed-use development with a portion of the ground floor devoted to commercial uses and high-density residential above, and encouraged the inclusion of affordable housing units.

The Mayfair Request for Qualifications (RFQ) was issued and we received a total of 11 submittals. Three development teams, listed below, were selected to advance to the short-list proposal stage. Responses to the Request for Proposals (RFP) were due on June 2, 2016 and the City and review committee selected the Holliday Development and Bridge Housing development team to move forward.
