North Carolina DOT, Charlotte seek developer qualifications for Gateway Station area


The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and city of Charlotte have issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) from developers with experience in urban mixed-use projects to partner on the future Gateway Station district development.

The RFQ is the next step in choosing a master developer for the station project, which will be built near Bank of America Stadium in uptown Charlotte, NCDOT officials said in a prepared statement. The stadium is three blocks from city center and next to the Third and Fourth Ward neighborhoods.

The station will serve as a central hub for Amtrak, Greyhound Bus service, the Charlotte Area Transit System’s streetcar and bus services, North Corridor commuter-rail service and Mecklenburg County’s greenway system, NCDOT officials said. The facility also will aid in the surrounding area’s redevelopment, they said.

Developers are being asked to submit RFQs no later than Sept. 21.
