The four-part DFI Pre-Development Process results in a recommended program (uses, associated square footage and parking) and public participation structure for each of our projects. Once the local government client has endorsed these recommendations, DFI actively recruits developers to respond to the solicitation, similar to a request for qualifications or request for proposals. All project research is summarized in the Solicitation, along with requirements to be included in responses, and the timeline and criteria for evaluation of responses.
