Bailey South:
New renderings and "before" photographs of this project, starting construction this month, in downtown's IQ District. This is part of the multi-building Bailey Power Plant project. The historic 23-1 power plant building from 1926 will become a two-storey retail structure and the developer will construct a new six-storey office building on the back side of the historic building. If you're interested in leasing retail or office space in this project, call: (336) 724-1715. I'm not sure how much space is still available, so call today, if you're interested.

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.

Yes, this is the city seen on "12 cities poised for a real estate investment boom." It's a fun time to post on Winston-Salem development!

Hotel Indigo:
According to the developer, Hotel Indigo will open around January 21, 2019.

Merschel Park:
Workers are digging 17 feet / 5.2 metres down for the underground parking structure, which will use car lifts to stack automobiles above each other.

Bonds Passed:
Thank you for passing the bonds! A funding source is now in place for several cycling and park projects, along with the major downtown streetscape transformation! It should be fun to follow these projects! Most of the cycling projects are centered on bicycle commuting into downtown from the surrounding neighborhoods.

Crawford Condominiums:
A sign was installed on the construction fence for this condominium and retail project. It appears to have changed names, but I'm not really sure at this point? It could be an ad for luxury living with a view of the park and not an actual name change? I think Mayfair on 4th is the name for the entire two hotel, condo building, retail, office, and park development? I will continue to use the name on the developer's website until I know for sure the project has changed names. The details are still the same: 32 luxury condominiums and a restaurant space. Though the sign says 2019, the project is said to be under construction right now and will open in January 2020. I'm guessing the weather is pushing back these projects?

Yes, this is the city seen in Pharmaceutical Executive Magazine!

Winter weather arrives in November in Winston-Salem and tonight we have freezing rain!

Hotel Indigo:
Due to the rain, there aren't any photographs from the construction site. We do have photographs from the Winston-Salem company designing and manufacturing the chairs for the hotel rooms. Yes, this local small business is designing and making the chairs here in Winston-Salem. 100% local!

Robert Hall Brewing Company:
This neon-themed brewery, sharing the history of downtown Winston-Salem in neon signs, will be the most awesome theme for a brewery in the Carolinas. I already want to go to this new brewery just to see these vintage signs from downtown's history!

Another sign they found in the building to restore for the neon-themed brewery (was originally on North Trade Street in the 1940s & 50s):

You can see the sign lit in this 1950s photograph of North Trade Street, looking South from Fifth Street:

Bailey Power Plant Complex:
New office tenant at Bailey Power Plant: Renfro Corp., which designs and makes socks for Fruit of the Loom, Polo Ralph Lauren, and New Balance, has leased office space in Bailey Power Plant for their new innovation center. Renfro has created new executive positions for this innovation center and is creating a graphic design team with a focus on design excellence. They are also hiring to create digital, e-commerce, and consumer engagement teams at Bailey Power Plant. Renfro expects this office to grow rapidly, as they also launch two new brands. There is a possibility the company may move their corporate headquarters to Winston-Salem and downtown's IQ District. Their decision to select Winston-Salem and downtown's IQ District for their new innovation center was based on proximity to incubators, CIC / Venture Cafe, and the region's universities, such as Wake Forest University, WSSU, Salem College, and UNC School of the Arts. The CEO views downtown Winston-Salem's IQ District as a perfect fit for what they are trying to do in transforming the company.

Business N.C., Magazine has recognized Bailey Power Plant as the Best Renovation Project in North Carolina in their 2018 Building North Carolina awards. Half of the project was completed in February and the other half is just starting construction this month.

Bowman Gray Stadium Renovation:
The city will keep the 1930s stadium and is planning a $9 million renovation of the Art Deco sports facility. Look for new signage, a resurfaced track, new restrooms & concession stands, refurbished field house, new seating, renovated ticket booths, new landscaping, a regraded football field, a major renovation of the press boxes, and a new high-capacity Wi-Fi system.

Bailey South:

Yes, it's under construction! I'll add it to our first page construction list:

Alternative Transportation:

East-West Expressway Demolition:
The 1955 expressway will be closed on November 17 for demolition. Yes, the expressway will be demolished! Both the highway and bridges will be demolished. This is expected to send more traffic into the downtown area, so be prepared. The demolition of the expressway will also begin construction on several fun bike, pedestrian, and bridge projects on our first post list, such as the land bridge and bicycle commuter path with flyovers where two bike paths will merge.
