RICHMOND, Va. — The City of Richmond has chosen three finalists for the Diamond District redevelopment project.

Richmond Community Development Partners, RVA Diamond Partners and Vision300 Partners, LLC were all selected by the city to respond to a Request for Offers (RFO) — which will be issued during the week of May 30. Their responses will be due June 28.

"Teams made the competitive cut because their design, program strength, community benefits and financing approaches meet high city expectations, align with vision for area," the city said in an announcement on Tuesday.

The city said they hope to announce their preferred team for the project in July.
