Wherehouse Art Hotel Expansion: Built!
The expansion of this art and music themed boutique hotel is now completed. I will miss not following this project. It is a very awesome hotel. Thank you to Haydee for allowing us to follow the progress and let us know if you expand again. I would love to share it with the forum!

Stay an entire month, so you can spend a night in these rooms and all of the rooms in the hotel!

This hotel room is called "The Green Room"

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.

Fiddlin' Fish Brewing Company:
The original artwork in the space was destroyed. Thankfully, the brewery brought in a great artist to create replacement art, themed around the brewery. Hieronymus is among Winston-Salem's best artists. His work can be seen in both Winston-Salem and Los Angeles.

I couldn't find any new photographs of Miss Ora's Kitchen, which will open at a later date. I think it will open in a week or two?

Union Station & Streetcar Yard:
Another construction project that is difficult to find photographs or updates of. The windows are covered, likely removed for restoration? Completion is set for June 2018.

Due to Winston-Salem's rough terrain, there are entrances on two of the three floors. Notice the bridge. This is a side entrance from the sidewalk to the third floor:

Convention Center Renovation:
The completion date was moved to June 1, when they missed an earlier completion date in May, and now I don't think they can complete this before July 1? What is the latest completion date? I can tell they are frustrated at the progress, because progress photographs and updates from official sources have disappeared. This has now become a project that is difficult to find photographs of.

ABC of NC:
ABC of NC, the Triad's only comprehensive provider of autism services, will expand their building. Construction is set to begin on June 28. ABC of NC serves an 18 county area in the Triad and Northwest North Carolina. This project will result in 50 new jobs.

Even more amazing than the crane is the aerial in this week's update! Wow! Look at the size of this apartment building's construction site! The 6-storey building with retail will use the entire site!

It will be located at the main entrance to the building, at the corner of Fifth Street and Patterson Avenue. Expect to see more tenant announcements, soon.

Hotel Indigo:
City Councilman Jeff MacIntosh said "He (Simon Burgess) explained that by using historic tax credits the start-up time has been very long but that the credits were key in making the project work. Now that demolition and Historic certification are finished Blum Construction will start renovation any day now. Look for an opening date of late spring, early summer 2018." It was also said, developer Simon Burgess loves Winston-Salem so much he will move to this city at the end of the month. Simon Burgess is from Europe and has worked on hotel & golf resort projects around the world.

Stevens Center Apartments:
According to Lindsay Bierman, in a recent interview, the Stevens Center declined rapidly over the past several years and is in desperate need of extensive renovations and technology upgrades. The terracotta is falling from the upper floors, so there is a sense of urgency to move this project forward. This is the work we are seeing, right now. This is another historic rescue project. Robert A.M. Stern Architects was hired to work on this project and plans should be completed by Fall 2017. Robert A.M. Stern and Lindsay Bierman want the Stevens Center to become a major regional cultural attraction. Cost consultants were also hired.

New Winston Museum:
I want to thank Lambert Architecture for sharing an update. The architect said "Interior demolition has begun to transform the Winston-Salem Journal building into an exciting contemporary workspace! Removing 90 years of accretions to expose the original shell of the original 1927 building. Reopened roof monitor skylights will make for a cool studio space." It sounds awesome! I think this project will be completed in September or October of this year.

Convention Center Renovation:
We finally have a new completion date: July 15, with a ribbon cutting on July 28. It was originally scheduled for completion on May 4. Then completion moved to May 21 and then it moved to June 1. No one is saying why it wasn't completed on time or why it missed other completion dates. Part of the project won't be completed until possibly Fall 2017? They are saying work on the skybridge is delayed until later in the year.

Plaza Building & Galleria:
Workers are preparing to replace the massive skylight over the Galleria. The Fortune 500 headquarters renovation incorporates ENERGY STAR appliances and lighting to dramatically reduce energy use. 90% of items removed from the building were recycled or donated to charities. This project won a 2017 International Interior Design Association Carolinas Design Works Award, for design excellence and new, innovative solutions for interior spaces. Yes, I was able to find a rare interior update!

500 West Fifth Street:
This project is now under construction and will appear on our construction list. Frank L. Blum Construction is the general contractor. Flow's headquarters, in the skyscraper, will be completed in October. Other leases, for the remaining space, are being signed and you should see workers around the building tomorrow. Everything is ahead of schedule. There are tenants throughout the southeast interested in leasing in this tower, according to Flow, and he is working to bring two individuals with "significant experience" in starting new companies to the 21-storey skyscraper. You may remember, this building will have two floors for startups. That space is free for startups in their first year and startups will pay cheap rent after their first year.

First Baptist Church Restoration:
This project will move forward and includes the demolition of the 1954 and 1961 expansions on the church's north side. This will restore the building to its original 1925 size. With a shrinking congregation, this will allow the church to restore their building and continue to operate there. Changes include exterior and interior restoration of the Sanctuary building and constructing a 4,200 square-foot multi-functional space and an outdoor chapel at the rear of the Sanctuary building.

I will miss the 1954 and 1961 expansions. They really filled-out the block in an urban way and looked similar to the original building. The proposed replacement structure is smaller and doesn't look like the original 1925 building, but I understand the church's reasons for doing this and thank them for continuing restoration efforts.

Off-Subject:
Over the past week, Winston-Salem was scouted for a super hero movie; was selected to be among several of the world's great creative cities on a TV show this fall; and South Main Street in downtown's Old Salem District was selected by a magazine as the nation's 4th best Main Street. Some people here may have a good laugh at this: The week before, a former magazine executive and NYC architect compared the city to Brooklyn and Austin. I present Winston-Salem here as its own unique and fun place. I think this city is being discovered nationally, which should be good for new development.

Bookmarks Headquarters & Downtown Bookstore: Built!
This adaptive-reuse project is now completed. Bookmarks opens debt free, with their building paid for and a large reserve fund. The new "independent" downtown bookstore will have story times for kids, with Karl the Kraken. It also has offices, an event space, and a cafe (with beer from neighboring Foothills Brewing) will open inside the bookstore in October. The event space will have frequent book signings with your favorite authors and other fun events. Be sure to visit Wednesday to meet John Grisham, who will sign books at the new downtown bookstore (ticketed event). Charlie Lovett, the chairman of Bookmarks, is a New York Times bestselling author and wanted to build this bookstore to attract more authors to Winston-Salem throughout the year. Bookmarks is designed as a comfortable gathering space to connect readers with authors and books. Architect Glenn Fulk did a great job with this project. I would like to see him work on more projects in downtown. Though the bookstore has a Fourth Street address, it is located at the end of a breezeway, in an alley. It really gives this bookstore a fun location and appearance. It's a quiet and peaceful bookstore hidden within a bustling downtown. There are three or four independent bookstores in downtown Winston-Salem. If you love books, like I do (yes, I'm a ), please visit all of them!

Don't forget to attend Bookmarks' Festival of Books & Authors in downtown Winston-Salem, on September 7-10. It is North Carolina's largest book festival. Be sure to look for other events, each month, from Bookmarks. They hold events in downtown throughout the year and bring authors to the local schools. This is a great organization and now they have a great bookstore!

This week's update includes information on a possible proposal to build what could become the city's new tallest high-rise!

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.

Instead of asking Lauren what song I should post, I decided to select a song I like for this week's update:
Video Link


New Tallest:
The tech boom continues... Are you ready for a tech company to build the city's tallest high-rise? CamCityFan at WSTB Forum, a good source of information on new projects, is reporting "a "notable company in the West" is planning to open a new HQ in downtown" "and they will build a 35+ story building." It's said to be a tech company, but this skyscraper won't be constructed in the IQ District. The location was said to be "just off of Fourth Street." 340 North Spruce Street (corner of Spruce Street and Holly Avenue)? Do you remember the high-rise sites report the city made, in February of this year? (Click Here to see it) I said, for the city to make that, someone had to ask for it. I think it was made at this project's request? We will see what happens. The current tallest is 34-storeys / 460 feet (140.25 metres) tall. 35+ storeys sounds like someone trying to build a new tallest for Winston-Salem. An office building of this height would reach around 550+ feet (around 168 metres) tall. This is a very large headquarters relocating to downtown Winston-Salem. Do you think this could be a Fortune 500 headquarters? If it happens, it would be the biggest development in Winston-Salem's tech boom. Very exciting!

Joymongers Brewing:
Are you ready for another brewery? This small batch brewery is already in permitting for the former CrossFit Downtown space. It is an adaptive-reuse of an existing historic building. "we are committed to innovative, local, small batch brewing. At every opportunity, we combine the finest seasonal ingredients from across the U.S. with the best grains and hops from around the world.

Travis Tolson, head brewer at Wicked Weed Brewing, originally wanted to open a brewery in this building. I think he was also looking at the Cycling Center on Main Street, too. He wants to open his own brewery in downtown Winston-Salem. I don't know what sites he is currently looking at? It would be great if he selected Bailey Power Plant. Yes, there could be another brewery announcement, soon!

They have demolition permits. This will likely be a project that is best viewed from interior photographs. If you have a chance to photograph the interior, please do so and share with us.

Wherehouse Art Hotel Expansion: Built!
Yes, this project was completed a few weeks ago, but I wanted to share this! "Building a chandelier (not pictured) to cascade through the center of the future off gallery space. It used to be the smoker in this 1913 meat packing factory we like to call home."

This is where the hotel will construct a new chandelier to replace these lights:

Wake Forest University School of Medicine added another sign to their building, so everyone in downtown will see the Wake Forest University name. I wish more tenants in downtown's IQ District would add their names to the top of their buildings.

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.

This is a great song for this thread and the forum:

Since it's nearing completion, in 20 days, I'll make it this week's lead project.

Bailey Business Center - Building 23-2: (Bailey Power Plant Complex)
London's CML Microsystems Plc will lease space in Bailey Power Plant for their United States headquarters. They are a wireless semiconductor company. CML Microsystems will move into the power plant's Building 23-2 in January 2018. Mark Gunyuzlu, CML Microsystems president, said "We hope to leverage our technical depth and expertise to generate opportunities for collaboration with other companies there and so grow our presence." With this announcement, the power plant is now 77% leased. If you're interested in leasing here, they still have some space available. Look for more office and retail/restaurant tenant announcements, soon. Dr. Tomlinson said those announcements will be made this month!

Kaleideum Science Museum:
Gensler and STITCH Design Shop are still working on the design for this science museum. They plan to reuse the steel skeleton of this existing building and expand it to the south, doubling its size. This project is surrounded by other construction sites, including three hotel construction sites and a park construction site. This entire area is filled with construction and proposals. It could become one of those amazing areas no one can recognize, in about three years! Very exciting!

Wise Man Brewing Expansion:
Wise Man is already one of the state's most popular breweries! This will likely be the Triad's third largest brewery and one of North Carolina's top five largest breweries for 2017 and they just opened this year! This is what Wise Man Brewery said: "Add another one to the collection! Today we took delivery of a shiny new 30BBL tank from ABS Commercial. We have now doubled in size in only 6 short months!" WOW!

Wise Man Brewing is only 6 months old and they are already winning beer competitions: "We're deeply honored to add these 5 medals from the American Brewers Palate Awards to our growing collection!"

Goler-Depot Super Energy Efficient Solar Condos:
Remember this project, planned for downtown's Goler-Depot District? We now have an updated rendering. It looks more like a finished design in this rendering. If built, it would be a nice addition to downtown. Did you know these downtown condominiums will produce more energy than they use?

North Carolina's Tree City USA of the Year:
Winston-Salem is North Carolina's Tree City USA of the Year for 2017. The award recognizes the city's ongoing program to promote and protect its urban forest, and in particular for its efforts to educate homeowners and utilities about proper tree maintenance. Entries were judged for impact, quality, innovation, and the degree to which the work serves as a worthy example for others to follow, said Nancy Stairs, the urban forestry program coordinator for the N.C. Forest Service. "We are glad to recognize Winston-Salem, as the city has maintained a stable and steady urban forestry program over the years, which is pretty important in itself," Stairs said. Keith Finch, the city’s director of vegetation management, said the award affirms the city's efforts to promote and protect trees. Winston-Salem has been a Tree City USA community for 17 consecutive years and received its sixth Growth Award from Tree City USA in 2016. The Growth Award encourages communities to participate in activities that recognize environmental improvement, encourage higher levels of tree care, and strengthen community involvement.

Hotel Indigo:
Winston-Salem architect Marc Bryson died on July 7. He worked for local architecture firm archSTUDIO7. archSTUDIO7 is working on the Hotel Indigo adaptive-reuse project in downtown Winston-Salem. Yes, he did work on this project. He is survived by his husband, Phillip Kearns. Bryson worked on a few projects we have followed on this thread. This project is across the square from his office.

Twin City Lofts Condominiums:
I found a few construction photographs, from the past few weeks, at Twin City Lofts. An upscale restaurant is in the process of leasing the corner retail space. They could have all three retail spaces leased in the next week or two? Buyers are currently closing on the condominiums. The first two closings were late last week. If you would like to buy one of these condominiums, please call (336) 779-9602 for availability. I don't know how many are still on the market? I would suggest calling right now, if you're interested in buying. These are very reasonably priced and in an amazing location.

Alternative Transportation:

Rails-to-Trails Bicycle Commuter Highway: (Winston-Salem's High Line)
According to the GC, the north end of the project is 45% completed and the south end of the project is 90% completed, as of last week. The GC said this about the north end: "All but one bridge has been installed and construction on trail has begun." The GC said this about the south end: "Bridges have been set, pipe extensions yet to be complete - weather conditions this winter have extended completion date." I thought the south end was already built? People are already using it, while it's still under construction. Completion is still shown as October 2017.

The south end needs trees and landscaping, if possible with the light rail (LRT) right-of-way (ROW) agreement:
