Deadline for Developers to Respond to Request For Expressions of Interest Extended to Dec. 15

Posted on November 14, 2023 at 4:06 PM by Nancy McCormick

Loudoun County has issued a Request For Expressions of Interest (RFEI) for the development of county-owned land for attainable housing. The property is about 4.86 acres and was formerly the Ashburn North Park and Ride lot. The deadline for applicants to submit a response to the RFEI has been extended to 4:00 p.m., December 15, 2023.  

The purpose of the RFEI is to: 

  • Gauge interest from the affordable housing development community. 
  • Gather information to establish project requirements for the next phase of the procurement process. 
  • Collect ideas from potential developers with the interest, capacity, and qualifications to design, plan, finance, construct, and operate/manage a desirable 100 percent attainable or a mixed-income housing project within the defined confines of county-owned land. 

This is a Request for Expressions of Interest only and no award will result from the RFEI.

Housing Definitions and Needs

Affordable housing, as the term is defined in the Virginia Code, Section 15.2-2201, consists of housing units to serve households earning up to 80% of Area Median Income (AMI). Attainable housing, as the term is defined in the Loudoun County’s Unmet Housing Needs Strategic Plan (UHNSP), consists of housing units to serve households earning up to 100% of AMI. The proposed development must address Loudoun County’s 2019 Comprehensive Plan and the UHNSP with the goal to provide attainable housing to households earning up to 100% of AMI.

Specific to this RFEI, the UHNSP aims to “secure land resources needed to address unmet housing needs,” and to “use public land and facilities for housing.” Loudoun County can consider the use of public land in a new way and consider making it available for the development of attainable housing. By allowing mixed-income, high-density development on high value public sites, Loudoun County can create opportunities for affordability housing and attainable housing; and ensure diverse, inclusive communities.

How to Apply

Final submissions must be sent in PDF format via email with the subject line “RFEI: Former Ashburn North Park and Ride Submittal.” All RFEI submissions are due by Friday, December 15, 2023, prior to 5:00 p.m.
