Development Opportunities

Prior to the Dissolution of Redevelopment in the State of California, Contra Costa County had acquired various sites in the unincorporated areas for the development of Affordable Housing. Contra Costa County assumed the responsibility of housing assets of the former redevelopment agency. Some of the sites are in contract for affordable housing projects and others will be made available through a Request for Qualifications/Request for Proposal process. This page includes information related to the availability of development sites within the former Redevelopment areas.


Developer Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for North Richmond, Rodeo and Bay Point Properties

The Contra Costa County Housing Successor to the Redevelopment Agency (“County”) is seeking developers for sites in North Richmond, Rodeo, and Bay Point. Several of the Bay Point sites are located near the Pittsburg/Bay Point BART Station and State Highway 4 in unincorporated Contra Costa County. These sites are excellent locations for high density residential mixed-use, transit-oriented development and represent an exciting opportunity for the County to enter into a purchase and sale agreement or public/private partnership with an experienced developer. 

Pursuant to the provisions of California Government Code Section 54220 et seq. (the “Act”), Contra Costa County hereby notifies those entities designated in Section 54222 of the Act of the availability for purchase County Housing Successor-owned land (the “development site”) for the purposes authorized in the Act, which land the County intends to declare surplus before the County takes action to dispose of it consistent with the Act and the County’s policies or procedures.
