The city of Kannapolis has reached an agreement which will bring more development to West Avenue. The city will provide three parcels of property to Right Field Development, LLC as an investment incentive. The land has an appraised value of $1,668,442. In return, Right Field Development, LLC will develop the parcels into apartments, restaurants, retail stores, condominiums and possibly a hotel.

Each apartment will have dedicated patio space that will face either West Avenue or the ballpark. Once completed, it will have a minimum tax value of $8,460,000.
