Toll Brothers is accepting bids on their Applebrooke Meadows Land Development project. Please read this complete ebid, all email notices, and the Sorcity Member Agreement, in full, so you understand the bid guidelines and are properly prepared for this bid if your company would like to participate.

If you have been invited to this ebid, Toll Brothers has settled on your plan as one of several acceptable plans, and is now completing the award process with this final ebid round and is inviting you to participate.  The anticipated start date for this award is February, 2011. 

Now that the acceptable proposals have passed the qualification stage, this is now in the final pricing stage and Toll Brothers intends to award to the lowest bidder. Toll Brothers also does not intend to award a price higher than what they have currently been provided, so bid aggressively.  



Any direct contact with the Buying Organization regarding this opportunity, after 1/20/2011, during, or after the Online Bid Event, until the Buyer contacts you, will cause you to be in violation of the bid process and be eligible for penalties (see Sorcity Member Agreement).
