Yeah, Cherry and 3rd, across Cherry from 1st Presbyterian.

And the design isn't exciting, but it isn't horrible.

I'm very excited about Hotel Indigo, though. The Pepper Building needed something special in it.

With all the national attention over downtown Winston as a tourist destination, hotels there should have booming business.

Looks like hockey is coming back to W-S. The Carolina Thunderbirds:

Hotel Indigo is a perfect fit for that building. It should be an interesting hotel.

I think it would be cool if there was enough land to build a mini arena, about 5,000 to 8,000 seats attached to the Benton Convention Center. It would be a great venue for hockey and events associated with the Benton Convention Center.

Indeed. Downtown Winston needs a sports and entertainment arena.

I see that construction on the Lidl grocery store in W-S has started off Peters Creek Pkwy. That is still what's coming on the property near Lowe's and next to Chick-fil-A, correct?

A good article about Winston-Salem titled "What's Next for Downtown?" What

Quote:
On the Horizon: Five more landmark projects currently underway.
**
Plant 60 (Wake Downtown) – With 283,000 square feet of space, this colossal U-shaped warehouse was built in the 1920s during the boom years of R.J. Reynolds Tobacco. A portion of the building was reopened in recent weeks following a $100 million renovation by Wexford Science + Technology. One half of the building now serves as home-base for Wake Forest’s School of Medicine* and welcomed its first students—about 480 of them—in early August. The other half is set to open in January 2017 and will be filled by Wake’s two new undergraduate programs: Biomedical Sciences and Engineering. By the time the new programs are fully operational in 2021, officials expect approximately 350 undergrads to be studying in the Innovation Quarter.

Bailey Power Plant – Constructed in the 1920s, Bailey Power Plant and its 14-story smokestacks have been one of the city’s most iconic structures for almost a century. Wexford Science + Technology is now leading a $40 million renovation that will convert the 111,000 sq. ft. plant into a unique mixed-used entertainment destination. While nothing is confirmed, we’ve heard rumors that an upscale bowling alley, movie theater, music venue, and brewery could potentially occupy the space, along with offices, restaurants, retail, and outdoor communal space. Construction recently got underway, and we’ve heard the project could be complete by early 2018.

Texas Pete Headquarters – Officials with T.W. Garner added some spice to downtown when they announced plans to relocate the Texas Pete headquarters to the historic Nash-Bolich building on Fourth Street. About 26 employees will move into a 14,500 sq. ft. section on the building’s second floor once construction wraps in 2017. The company is also constructing a space on the side of the building for an expanded “test kitchen” that will be visible from the new corporate boardroom. Production will remain at T.W. Garner’s facility on Indiana Avenue, where it has 65 employees.

AFAS Center for the Arts – According Harry Knabb, chairman of Arts for Arts Sake (AFAS), this three-story building rising at the corner of Seventh and Liberty will be unlike anything the Triad has ever seen. It will feature a modern design with translucent walls and red highlights that complement the adjacent ARTivity park. “The cool part is that the white on the building is polycarbonate, a translucent material that will give a diffused light to the studios,” says Knabb. “At night they will be backlit, so the building will glow.” Designed by architects with STITCH, the $4 million building is set to open by May 2017. It will consolidate AFAS’ functions into one location, including the Red Dog Gallery and Unleashed Arts Center, and will also have 10 affordable artist studios. The top floor will have a board room that can be rented and features a balcony overlooking ARTivity.

U.S. National Cycling Center – For more than a year, a 50-foot banner has been touting the building at 505 N. Liberty St. as the “Home of the National Cycling Center.” While the project has been stymied by various permit issues and delays, officials say construction is now underway and should escalate this month. Once completed, the 42,000 sq. ft. center will serve as training grounds for the country’s top cyclists. The second floor will be dedicated solely to the center, including dorm rooms, a nutrition center, and training areas. The other floors will have a multiuse component that could include apartments, restaurants, wellness centers, and a brewpub. Officials hope to have the bulk of the project—estimated to cost $5–$6 million—finished in time for next year’s W-S Cycling Classic in May. They’re also negotiating with*officials to brand the center as an Olympic training venue and display the five Olympic rings. Assuming that happens, it'd be one of just two such sites in the country.

I'm sure he was referring to an enclosed arena, and I don't know that it's anything that's high on the list of needs for Winston. Minor league hockey isn't what it was a couple decades ago, and minor league basketball doesn't draw all that well. Unless Wake Forest decided to move their games to a downtown arena, I don't really see the case for it. I guess maybe a smaller-scale multi-use space could have its uses, but I don't know if the juice would be worth the squeeze if the city would be on the hook for funding it.
