DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY FOR HOTEL & EVENT SPACE OR COMMERCIAL VENTURE: 

This document is an invitation for experienced development teams to present conceptual plans for the redevelopment of the Grey Hosiery Mill in downtown Hendersonville, NC. The City of Hendersonville has engaged the UNC School of Government’s Development Finance Initiative (DFI) to create a feasible redevelopment plan for the site that leverages public investment to induce private sector development. DFI will assist developers with understanding and responding to the City’s requirements for the Mill’s redevelopment. Once DFI and City staff have reviewed all proposals, they will be presented to Hendersonville’s City Council with a recommendation for endorsement. While an endorsement by Council is not final approval, it will trigger an exclusive period of negotiation between the City and their selected partner for a development services agreement for the project.
