Salem Station Restoration:
It appears as if restoration work has started on the historic Salem Station Building. The photographer restores historic windows. Salem Station was originally home to a printing company, a fraternal organization, and a post office. It's currently the headquarters of Upper South Studio, which makes art and furnishings for luxury hotel, upscale restaurant, and casino interiors. They have owned the building since they moved to Winston-Salem from New York City in 1979. I've heard the owner has wanted to restore this building for several years. I had a chance to tour it in 2004, but sadly had to decline the offer. It's great to see this building being restored and it's also great to finally see the inside. It has a beautiful Victorian appearance and is mostly intact!

You can see where the Norge sign and light fixture were attached, in the photograph above.

Yes, I have an historic photograph in this update:

This appears to be the fraternal organization's former space? The fraternal organization was an original tenant when the building first opened:

Lower left corner: I think this photograph is a few weeks old? I think they have brick on all four sides, now?

This photograph is new to this thread, though, and shows the hotel on the skyline.

Is it built yet?

Fifth & Marshall Apartments:
The developer of this downtown grocery store, with an attached parking deck hidden behind apartments, has hired a company to perform soil testing / sampling. I'm not sure if they will build the rumored proposal, from last year, with its skybridge connecting the building to 500 West 5th. I guess we shall see. I don't like skybridges and would like to see that part of the project removed from their plans.

Robert Hall Hotel and Conference Center:
An update on the office space in the hotel, restaurant, office, and conference center project. This person does great work!

It's the grey building with the dumpster in front:

1827 Shoemaker's Workshop:
Workers from REMPART in France, along with contractors Ann Hall, Bob Pearl, and Robbie King, have officially started work on this project! It will now appear on our construction list. Workers are stripping paint from the building. You can visit the site and learn about the restoration of this 192-year-old building!

MINIM:
As you know, this proposed 11-storey building will have an historic 1922 office building incorporated into it. The developer is temporarily leasing the retail space in the historic office building to a pop-up ice cream shop. If you like the ice cream shop, visit frequently and they (ice cream shop) have said they will open a permanent location in downtown. It won't be this building, since it will be gutted as part of the 11-storey MINIM project. This is a test to see how popular a downtown location would be for the ice cream shop and it's opening in time for a major downtown festival (National Black Theatre Festival).

It's great to see the developer leasing this space to temporary pop-ups while we wait for demolition and construction to start. They have a permit to start demolition on the Twin City Slice Building and that is where the new 11-storey building will be constructed. The 11-storey building and this historic building will be connected and I think they will share elevators? I'm not sure why they are taking so long to start work? Since the developer is leasing to a pop-up, that tells us it could be a few more months before work starts?

Winston Junction:
Stone's Throw Films is the newest office tenant to sign a lease at the mixed-use Winston Junction. Winston Junction has retail, restaurants, entertainment venues, an indoor market, and office space.

Walk of Fame:
You may remember this was part of the convention center expansion and renovation project. It took this long to finish this part of the project.

Woodruff Aviation College:
This project is now under construction and will appear on our construction list. Completion is set for August 2020. Combined with major investments in the airport, this aviation college is expected to bring aviation tech / aerospace jobs to Smith Reynolds Airport. The building under construction is one of two buildings for the new aviation college. This building is a technology lab. According to the State, 60% of the 12-county Triad Area's aviation jobs are at Smith Reynolds Airport.

Piedmont University Downtown IQ District Campus:
PIU will open a new Bachelor of Arts - Criminal Justice program at their new IQ District campus in the Phillips Building, across from Bailey Power Plant, at the corner of Fourth and Chestnut streets. The program includes training in social issues, such as human rights, race relations, and immigration. This four-year degree program has state-wide support and will begin in Fall 2019.

Flywheel Co-work will move into their new larger space on November 1. Architecture firm Workplace Strategies will also move their headquarters to this building.

Cats & Coffee? It's on Fifth Street, near the convention center, if you're interested:

If your apartment doesn't allow cats, this is a good solution. If your apartment does allow cats, you can adopt from this business.
