The City of Greensboro’s Housing and Neighborhood Development Department (HND) seeks qualified developers for the acquisition and development of multifamily units located at 1004-1028 John Dimrey Dr. This is a two-part process starting with this Request for Qualifications (RFQ).

Deadline for statements of qualifications is Friday, April 19.

A virtual question and answer session and onsite inspection are scheduled for Tuesday, April 9:

  • Virtual Q&A is 10-11 am on Zoom for all potential respondents. Attendance is optional but encouraged.
  • Onsite Inspection is noon to 2 pm for all potential respondents. Location is 1004-1028 John Dimrey Dr., Greensboro.

Developers who pass the RFQ screening will be invited to develop a team and proposal package in response to a Request for Proposals (RFP) that will be issued on this webpage Friday, May 3.

RFQ responses will be assessed based on applicants’ basic qualifications, relevant project experience, and financial capability. Those who pass the RFQ screening will be invited to develop a team and proposal package in response to a Request for Proposals (RFP) to be issued May 3 on www.greensboro-nc.gov/HNDRFPs.

“We want to engage with developers interested in purchasing and improving the property on John Dimrey as a transformative and catalytic project for the site and neighborhood to include affordable, diverse homes for our residents,” said HND Director Michelle Kennedy.

According to Kennedy, development proposals are an expensive investment of time and money for a developer. By establishing minimum criteria for qualified developers through the RFQ process, those selected know they have a reasonable chance of winning the project, and those not selected avoid incurring additional project predevelopment expenses.
