The University of Hawaiʻi is seeking proposals from qualified development teams for the implementation (design, construction, financing, and possible management) of a student housing project on the university‘s Mānoa campus. The project will involve the redevelopment, through renovation and/or reconstruction, of the site on which Frear and Johnson Halls and the International Gateway House are currently located to accommodate a minimum of 800 students.

The university intends to enter into an agreement with the most qualified team that demonstrates the knowledge, experience, organization and financial ability to implement large, complex, progressive and innovative projects in a timely manner that serves the best interest of the university.

A Request for Qualifications/Proposals has been issued to begin the process of selecting a developer. The first step in the two-step process is to solicit information in the form of a Statement of Qualifications from interested developer teams. A short list of the three to five most qualified teams will be invited to participate in the second step, which will require the submission of proposals for design, construction, financing, and possible management.

The Statement of Qualifications are due to the University of Hawaiʻi on Friday, January 21, 2005. To obtain RFP requirements and information, visit
