Pavilion Development of Charlotte is planning a retail development along Hanes Mall Boulevard in Winston-Salem, a project that could cost up to $20 million when fully built out by late 2015.
Former Panthers player Wesley Walls planning $20M Hanes Mall Blvd. development - Greensboro - The Business Journal

Plans for 150,000 sq ft of retail, less than earlier proposals. The developer says they have commitments on two larger rear parcels and is working on the four smaller parcels in front. This is the last sizable vacant property along Hanes Mall Blvd.

I'm curious who is going to go into those two rear parcels.

Oh boy, even more development to contribute to the Hanes Mall Blvd. congestion. I'm all for having more shopping options, but they seriously need to address the traffic flow.

I wish they would build and develop more retail and mixed use in center city, instead of more low density sprawl.

Agreed. We now have some nice restaurant/bar offerings downtown, but definitely need more retail establishments to draw people in. I know there are plans for a Mast Store, so I'm hoping that will spark more additions.

With quite a bit of empty space still available in that block adjacent to Carmax, off Kester Mill?

I guess the next path of development will be west, on 158, heading toward Clemmons. I wish someone with gumption and funds would do tear-downs and repurpose many of the properties on 158 heading toward W-S. That road definitely needs to be reconfigured.

I'm not thrilled with even more traffic in that area, but I figured it was inevitable. But it is such a pain driving anywhere around there at various times, especially on weekends.

158 is Stratford Rd, right? With apartments, the bank (credit union?) HQ going up, the area just south of Hanes Mall Blvd probably will see more development in the future.

Folks tend to think of the road as 158 (starts in Mocksville) until it crosses Hanes Blvd, then it becomes "Stratford." There is a headquarters for a credit union under construction on the "158" stretch with additional long-time businesses as you head toward Clemmons. At least the road is already 4-lanes and able to handle the current traffic, unlike the Stratford section. Lord, that is awful. We never go to that part of town on the weekend. On weekdays we go early, get our shopping done, eat at 11am and get out of there. There is still that parcel of land triangulated by Kester Mill, Hanes and Char-Lou Road. It's kind of historic in that the buildings illustrate how that area used to be rural/farming. Last I heard, it was on the market for $2 million.
