Projects & Construction:
I want to thank the photographers and local businesses, sharing updates on projects, who make this thread possible. Without you, these weekly updates won't happen. If you would like to see your project on this thread, just post photographs to social media.

Long Creek Park:
The City of Winston-Salem is working with The Conservation Fund to acquire a 164 acre tract of land for a new park. The Conservation Fund will seek grants and transfer the land to the city at no cost. The City will hire a consultant to help plan the park.

Lost History:
The vintage neon Kopper Kitchen sign was replaced with an ad for the brewery in the building. It is sad to lose this piece of Winston-Salem history. I thought the building owner agreed to leave the old neon sign as it was? Does anyone know if it was the last decades-old neon sign remaining?

Welden Village:
Arden Group is planning a "traditional" neighborhood development, centered around short walks. It will be an integrated walkable community with well-connected streets where residents can make short walks to parks, open spaces, civic amenities, and retail. The village will have features such as front porches and wide sidewalks to encourage interaction. Expect to see 200 town homes and 500 apartment units, with a 30 acre commercial village. 30 percent of the 385 acres will be open space and will include include 12 miles of bike & walking trails. Welden Park Apartments, a 306-unit complex adjacent to the village center, will be the next building in the development, breaking ground in Summer 2017. The General Contractor for the apartment building will be Parr Construction.

Twin City Lofts Condominiums:
It appears as if GEMCAP will renovate the ground floor and the renovation looks nice! We can also see where the "TWIN CITY" letters will be installed, on the corner column. STITCH Design Shop is the architect for the retail space renovation. The ground floor renovation is something I've wanted to see since the project was announced! If you would like to rent one of the three retail/restaurant spaces, call (336) 724-1715.

Wise Man Brewing Expansion:
Did you know: Wise Man Brewing has Winston-Salem's very own UpDog Kombucha on tap. They currently have plans to provide a wall space for local artists. Harvey Williams said “We want to join the downtown arts scene because we’re right on the edge of it, so we’re a perfect place for local artists to showcase their work.” It's more than just a bar. Olivia Blute said “My friends went last weekend and sat outside and played games while they had their beers. It seemed different - not like every other bar. It has games and activities you can do, so it isn’t just about drinking.” This place appears to be packed every day! They are doing everything right. They recently installed two new fermenters and are increasing weekly production to keep up with high demand.
