Location: Los Angeles, CA

As a part of Metro’s commitment to grow our housing portfolio to 10,000 units by 2031, Metro is launching an unprecedented opportunity for developers to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of housing in LA County. On behalf of Metro, we are excited to announce the release of a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to establish a bench of qualified developers to partner with Metro on 20 new development opportunities (“10K Sites”). The RFQ will help identify qualified developers with a track record of successful development projects and a deep understanding of planning, designing, financing, and community needs. Selected qualified developers will then be given the opportunity to respond to site-specific Requests for Proposals for each of the 10K Sites.

The RFQ and all application materials are available here


Monday, September 18, 2023 at 10:00 am (PST): Virtual Pre-Proposal Conference (non-mandatory). 

Thursday, September 28, 2023 no later than 5:00 pm (PST): Developers interested in responding to the RFQ are strongly encouraged to complete an Interest Form to ensure they receive any amendments, answers to questions, and pre-proposal conference updates Metro may issue.
