UNC DFI’s Pre-Development Process results in a recommended program (uses, associated square footage and parking) and public participation structure for each of our projects. Once the local government client has endorsed these recommendations, UNC DFI actively recruits developers to respond to the solicitation, similar to a request for qualifications or request for proposals. All project research is summarized in the solicitation, along with requirements to be included in responses, and the timeline and criteria for evaluation of responses.


DFI, in partnership with the City of Kannapolis, is pleased to release a Solicitation for Development Partners for an Active Adult (55+) Residential Development Opportunity at the corner of Dale Earnhardt Boulevard and West F Street in downtown Kannapolis. This Solicitation closes on March 31, 2020. A one-page Executive Summary can be viewed here. The full Solicitation is available for download here.
