Stafford Place (Winston-Salem) Project Could Grow

PTAA member Chris Parr’s project on Peters Creek Parkway in the southern part of Winston-Salem caught the attention of the Winston-Salem Journal:

The apartment phase of Stafford Place off Peters Creek Parkway could end up being bigger than originally planned.

Developer Chris Parr wants to increase the number of apartments in Stafford Place, a mixed-use development on the new Stafford Village Boulevard, from 266 to 363 units…

“My plan is to build an upscale apartment community consisting of upgraded amenities, which I feel the area is in need of and will support,” said Parr, the owner of Parr Investments Inc. in Greensboro.

His apartment project, near Walmart, Lowe’s home improvement and other retailers and restaurants, is called Stafford Place LLC. There would be 12 buildings. The rent would range from $699 to $859 a month. The square footage of units would range from 800 to 1,200.

The City Council approved a zoning request in February 2008 for the overall 36-acre Stafford Place developed by Tetra Cos. The Stafford Place complex will include commercial space as well as the apartments.
