  • Fall 2015
    RFQ

    Mecklenburg County released an RFQ soliciting respondents to qualify for participation in an RFP for a mixed-use development encompassing the 11.3-acre Brooklyn Village site and the five-acre Walton Plaza site in uptown Charlotte. The RFQ highlighted the need for a vibrant, active development that would also demonstrate sensitivity to the diversity of the Brooklyn community that was lost as a consequence of past redlining and urban renewal efforts that began in the 1930’s.
