The City of San Antonio (hereafter referred to as “the City”), through this Request for Qualifications (hereafter referred to as “RFQ”) is soliciting statements of qualifications from interested parties to participate in a Public‐Private Partnership (hereafter referred to as “P3”) for the redevelopment of the Red Berry Estate.
The City of San Antonio seeks a developer or development team to redevelop the Red Berry Estate (“Project”), which consists of 84 acres that includes a 12,000 square foot mansion and an 11 acre man‐made lake. The Project is located 856 Gembler Road and 4007 East IH 10 in City Council District 2. The Project is adjacent to amenities such as Willow Springs Golf Course and Salado Creek Bike Trail.
On November 1, 2012, the City of San Antonio adopted Public‐ Private Partnership guidelines in accordance with the Texas Legislature enacting the Public and Private Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2011 under Chapter 2267 of the Texas Government Code in order to facilitate and expand the use of P3s. In adopting the P3 Guidelines, the City has been provided an additional tool for developing capital improvement projects, using the Design‐ Build contract method. Under said guidelines, the City and a private entity (comprised of a single operator or a team) enter into a contractual agreement where the skills and assets of each sector (public and private) are shared in delivering a service or facility.
