A development agreement for UNC-Chapel Hill's Carolina North Campus was approved in June 2009. It contains guidelines and standards for the development of the first 3 million square feet of a mixed-use research and academic campus on 133 acres. Planning for the first project, the Collaborative Science Building is under way. The early development at Carolina North will be accessed from Estes Drive Extension and a re-aligned Airport Drive.

The agreement also contains guidelines for the rest of the property that will not be developed in the near future.

The development agreement requires that the Town and University do a periodic assessment of the overall effectiveness of the development agreement. This first assessment must be completed within three years of the agreement, which is June 30, 2012. Town and University staff have prepared the assessment, and it is available at
