Look, TarheelJ, more proof for the doubters:

Instead of just saying Pike is moving front office/war room jobs from MA to W-S, the TBJ uses the lollipop to get the reader to click by not really revealing to which city it refers. Again, it's the downtown "Triad"....

When it comes to stories about DT Winston-Salem, do the headlines mention the city by name? If so, then it looks like any reference to "downtown" without specifying a city is automatically about Greensboro, which would lend credence to the point Joe is making.

Default Whitaker Park Redevelopment Moves Forward

From the Winston-Salem Journal:

The Whitaker Park Development Authority won an agreement with the city that moves forward the creation of a business park.

The agreement with Whitaker Park Development Authority, or WPDA as it’s known by the city, puts in the capstone on an arrangement in the works for months, with the authority carrying out development of an industrial site being donated by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co.

WDPA will take ownership of the site in January 2017, said Bob Leak, the president of Winston-Salem Business Inc. one of the founding members of WDPA, which is a nonprofit group. Others in the group are Wake Forest University and the Winston-Salem Alliance.

Although WDPA has begun some marketing of the Whitaker Park properties, Leak said major efforts to find a tenant won’t start until the authority gets control of the property and is in a position to do renovations to match a suitable tenant.

“The strategy is to see what the client needs before we do any significant redevelopment,” Leak said.

The vote was unanimous on the council to approve the contract with WDPA.

In early 2015, RJR announced that it would donate most of its Whitaker Park manufacturing complex for industrial development, although the tobacco company will keep a central section of the property. The land to be donated includes 1.7 million square feet of building space with a tax valuation of more than $30 million, according to city records.

Forsyth County is contributing a maximum of $2.3 million for public infrastructure on the property, while the city is providing a $2 million loan and $2 million in other asistance: $1 million for buying right-of-way from the authority for utilities, and $1 million for installing utilities.

I don't, I read on and get the story. Must be your subconscious. FTR, click bait titles (all of them) are an annoyance, IMO.

Looks like the process of construction bidding has begun for the planned Hampton Inn and Suites in downtown Winston-Salem. Because of the nature of my job, I was able to see full rendrings and architectural plans for the hotel. I was not impressed at all. It looks like CN Hotels have taken a suburban Hampton Inn and plopped it downtown. Like the one planned for Downtown Greensboro, it will be 6 stories, however the design for the one in Greensboro looks more urban and fitting in a downtown landscape. Dont know why CN Hotels went with a more suburban design for Winston-Salem.

Having difficulty finding confirmation online, but Red Robin is coming to an outparcel at Hanes Mall. They've pulled a permit at 188 Hanes Mall Circle. Between Texas Roadhouse and BJ's Brewhouse, I think?

Also, Cities restaurant on S. Stratford Rd has apparently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Cities is close to my work, so I go there quite a bit. I like it as an alternative to Village Tavern since Cities is not busy as lunch. Cities seems to do ok at dinner, though.

Too bad they aren't being more creative with the design. Where will the Hampton Inn be located?

On a related note, we loved our stay at the Kimpton Cardinal Hotel - wife and I stayed there last weekend and hung around downtown. They did a great job with the building. Apparently they have been doing quite well with the occupancy rates. Hopefully this continues once Hotel Indigo opens.
