New Hanover County Requests Development Proposals for Project Grace

Posted October 2, 2018 at 4:55 pm     Category: County CommissionersNews ReleaseStrategy

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC – At the October 1, 2018 New Hanover County Board of Commissioners meeting, Commissioners approved a proposal that invites the two qualified teams to submit development proposals for Project Grace, the potential redevelopment opportunity of a three-acre county-owned block in downtown Wilmington.

This is the second step in a two-step solicitation process for the project. Due to Hurricane Florence, the timeline for proposals has been pushed back several weeks, and full proposals from the development teams are now due December 14.

The evaluation of the proposals, including public input and an independent financial analysis, will take place in early 2019.

The Request for Proposals document, which was released Tuesday, October 2, 2018, can be viewed on the county’s website. And a video of the board presentation can be viewed on NHCTV.
