Projects & Construction:
I want to thank the photographers and local businesses, sharing updates on projects, who make this thread possible. Without you, these updates won't happen.

We have a BIG Hotel Indigo update for this week!

Last week was freezing, but this week should bring warmer weather to enjoy our favorite city! Be sure to visit your favorite downtown businesses this week!

Hotel Indigo:
Congratulations to developer Simon Burgess. He is on a national list of executives to watch in 2019 for his massive two hotel, office, residential, restaurant, bar, and park development in downtown Winston-Salem, which includes this hotel. It's seen as a major transformative project worthy of national recognition. This past week, workers started restoring the original terrazzo flooring in the lobby.

Restoring the lobby floor from last week:

"The existing floor is multi-color terrazzo mixes with areas of concrete. The architect wanted to show the history of the building in the flooring."

They will construct a floor of underground stacked parking, a hotel lobby with restaurant above the underground parking floor, and office space for a bank headquarters. This will be reinforced concrete. Above the office space, workers will build hotel room floors, constructing the elevator cores and stair towers. The hotel will use modular construction from a downtown Winston-Salem-based modular construction company. They will build the hotel rooms in a factory, send them to the site, and use a crane to stack them above the concrete floors. This should take seven months. Finally, workers will clad the structure. The 9-storey Hyatt Place Hotel made a short appearance in a Bisnow article, allowing you to read about modular construction. This will be the first Hyatt hotel to use modular construction.

Crawford Condominiums:
Workers are extending utilities to the site before the concrete pour. Yes, work has started on this project! It will be a 9-storey fully furnished building, providing a temporary place to stay for executives moving to Winston-Salem. The companies moving the executives to Winston-Salem will pay to rent the residences.

Bailey South:
This project is a two-storey former power plant building from 1926 converted into retail/restaurant spaces and a new-construction six-storey office building, for tech and creative companies, built on the back side of the 1926 building. The new six-storey office building is designed to match the 1926 building it will be attached to.

La TriSoccer:
We now have a name for this project, which is an adaptive reuse of an old warehouse complex into a soccer complex.

Hyphen Hops Brewing Company & Mixed-use:
And this project is now on our under construction list. The owner of the new brewery is Jason Kohrt. This should be an interesting adaptive-reuse project. The brewery will grow its own hops on site. The project also includes apartments and other retail. Winston-Salem always has two or three craft breweries under construction. We complete two and begin construction on another.

Off-Subject:

Broad Branch Distillery:
Broad Branch Distillery will appear on national TV, on the Discovery Channel. It should bring more visitors to downtown, to see the distillery and maybe visit other attractions.

River Run International Film Festival:
USA Today selected Winston-Salem's River Run International Film Festival as one of "10 Amazing Film Festivals Worth Traveling For." Moviemaker Magazine also selected it as one of the "Top 50 Film Festivals Worldwide Worth the Entry Fee." River Run is April 4-14 and is an Academy Award qualifying film festival. It's a great chance to see movies and attend events in some of your favorite historic buildings in downtown Winston-Salem. They also have free movies in Bailey Park, in downtown's IQ District.
