Mixed use in Winston-Salem

By: Jonathan Groner
Mixed-use development is coming to Winston-Salem, N.C., in a small but significant way. The city, in which the home office of Womble Carlyle is located, is benefiting from downtown redevelopment in the same way as larger metropolises have benefited.

The former Davis department store on Fourth Street, just blocks from Womble Carlyle's offices, is being torn down and replaced by a new luxury eight-story condominium building, One Park Vista. Units in One Park Vista will run from about $250,000 to about $1 million. It is being designed in the 1920s classical revival style.

The building will feature 33 apartment units and a ground-floor commercial unit with about 3,500 square feet of commercial space -- either retail or restaurant. Separately, another developer is planning a civic plaza across the street. Observers expect that the face of downtown Winston-Salem will undergo a major makeover in the next few years.

John Allen, the head of the city's development office, told the Winston-Salem Journal earlier this year that the project is "a reflection of the trends that are going on not only in Winston-Salem but across the country."
