Hanesbrands Inc. is trying to sell a historic Winston-Salem textile plant to a developer with commercial and retail plans for the site.

The company said Thursday that Concord Development Group is interested in buying the Weeks plant, on a 63-acre site at 401 W. Hanes Mill Road.

The City-County Planning Board on Thursday unanimously approved Hanesbrands' request to rezone the property from light industrial to general business.

Hanesbrands spokesman Matt Hall said the rezoning would allow four new uses for the property: food and drugstore, non-drive-thru restaurant, retail store, and home furnishings and furniture store. The zoning request included plans to reduce the parking space by 30 percent to offer more space for retail uses.

LLN and akwebb, sorry but I don't really follow the logic of your comments. Why is this not a good thing for Winston-Salem?

You are correct, growth is a good thing for WS, especially if it transfers an empty factory into something productive. I was being a little playful with my comment given it's right beside the dump. However, I do tire of seeing endless strip malls (which Hanes Mill Rd has no shortage of). It will certainly require an upgrade to the infrastructure as, the interchange with 52 is extremely difficult with the current load of traffic. New facilities are a great thing, but endless strip malls, that end up like Peters Creek (btw downtown and Silas) in 20 years are not a blessing either. I say that hoping that they have a good focus on the project and have planning in place to help keep that from happening. Would prefer to have all the jobs that were lost from the closing of the Weeks Plant as well as the empty parking lots across the street.
