Request for Proposals for Lane-Idlewild Development

The City of Raleigh seeks innovative affordable housing development concepts for a 1.17-acre City-owned site in the West Idlewild neighborhood – which lies on the eastern edge of downtown Raleigh. The Community Development Division is issuing this Request for Proposals (RFP) to gauge the type of demand for the site. In addition, the City would like the interested parties to assess the site and propose its highest and best use. It is important to note that interested parties should consider all relevant City-sponsored plans and the City’s mission to improve the quality of life for Raleigh’s low- and moderate-income residents.

***Note***: This is Step 2 of a two-step process. Only those selected to proceed past Step 1 can submit for this Request for Proposals. The process is as follows:

Step 1: Request for Interest – The Request for Interest (RFI) method will be used to solicit initial responses from interested parties. Only those who respond to this RFI and are selected by staff will be eligible for submitting proposals in Step 2, “Requests for Proposals.”

Step 2: Request for Proposals – The Request for Proposals (RFP) will be sent to eligible parties who responded to the RFI and were selected by staff to proceed to Step 2. Development proposals will be evaluated and ranked by a City review committee against the criterion set forth in the RFP. Applicants are expected to provide additional detail to their proposals submitted in Step 1, any deviations from the RFI submittals must be explained and justified. The review team will recommend a proposal to City Council and they will make a final selection of the development proposal. After approval by the City Council, the selected developer and the City will enter into negotiations on the final terms of the agreement.

The City is placing a high priority on the following factors: 

  1. Income Targeting and Income-Mix
  2. Long-Term Affordability
  3. Density and Land Use
  4. Neighborhood Character 

The approximately 1.17-acre site is zoned Residential 10 (R-10) and consists of three (3) parcels. There is +/- 325 feet of frontage along East Lane Street and +/- 160 feet of frontage along Idlewild Street. This site is in an older part of the City; therefore, due diligence is recommended as it relates to utilities, stormwater, and historic preservation.

Details about submittal requirements can be found in the RFP PDF link here.

All proposals are due by April 15, 2021  at 3:00 p.m.

Combined Request for Proposals for Homeless and Housing Services

The City of Raleigh and Wake County have simultaneously issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to make available City of Raleigh Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds and Wake County Homeless Agency funds. All funding awarded through this RFP will be expected to comply with federal ESG regulations for both local funding (Wake County) and federal funding (City of Raleigh).

Funding is intended to create a system that locally will make homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring. Funds will support agencies that follow the Housing First model, participate in the Coordinated Entry System and the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), and provide wholistic services and case management to homeless households.

More specifically, the purpose of this funding opportunity is to:

  • Rapidly re-house individuals and families who are currently homeless;
  • Provide assistance to emergency shelters for general operations and case management services;
  • Provide street outreach, emergency care, and services to unsheltered persons;
  • Prevent at-risk households from being evicted and experiencing homelessness; and
  • Homeless Management Information System Administration (Eligibility Restricted to COC-Lead Agency Only)

The period the funding will cover is from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2023 (Fiscal Year 2021-2022 and Fiscal Year 2022-2023).
