Mecklenburg County is pleased to announce the selection of a master developer by the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) for redevelopment of Brooklyn Village in the Second Ward of uptown Charlotte. What does this mean? What happens next?
After reviewing their qualifications, three master developers were asked to submit redevelopment proposals in response to the County’s Request for Proposals (RFP). An initial presentation was made to the BOCC by the county manager’s office, and after a subsequent presentation to clarify outstanding questions, BK Partners LLC was selected as the master developer most responsive to the RFP.
Now, the County and BK Partners LLC go into negotiations to fine-tune the submitted proposal. During this process, stakeholders will be engaged to give insight into history of Second Ward and input into the future of the project. Negotiations will include – but are not limited to – discussion about housing density and types, including affordable housing units; retail and commercial development; greenspace and park areas; and historic preservation.
Brooklyn Village was a vibrant and dynamic neighborhood and the County and BK Partners LLC are committed to embracing and celebrating its history. The current proposal includes history pavilions throughout the development, a cultural center, and public art, all of which will be developed through extensive community engagement.
