Norfolk, VA (February 4, 2016) – Norfolk Redevelopment & Housing Authority’s (NRHA) September 30 Request for Proposals for purchase and development of 12 single-family detached homes has resulted in all lots being awarded amongst four contractors.

The lots located within the Central Brambleton, East Ocean View, Willoughby, and Berkley neighborhoods will be developed with quality crafted and designed residences.

While the RFP included NRHA preferred house plans, interested developers had the option to submit equal to or better house plans provided they were architecturally consistent with the respective neighborhoods.  The RFP established a minimum sales price for each lot and developers were given the option of bidding on any number of lots. Proposals were due by October 28, 2015.

The following five contractors were awarded one or more parcels. Each of the awarded contractors is a qualified member of NRHA’s Builders and Designers Guild.  Final plans are expected by March 31 and construction to begin late spring 2016.

About the Builders & Designers Guild

Based on a strong commitment to and presence in the housing market, NRHA established a Builders and Designers Guild (“the Guild”). The Guild is comprised of builders, architects and qualified designers, who share a common belief that quality design and craftsmanship are integral components of creating great neighborhoods. Guild membership is required for single-family (attached and detached) construction projects, where NRHA is the land developer. The Guild may ultimately be expanded to include multifamily and other development scenarios. For more information on the Builders & Designers Guild, visit
