Westside Apartment Redevelopment Moving Forward in Winston-Salem

The proposed apartment project on the site of what is now Westside Apartments in Winston-Salem is a go after the developer closed on the land deal in September. From the Triad Business Journal:

Pennsylvania-based Vision Development Inc. is planning 171 apartments among two buildings, with parking decks in each building for a total of 317 spaces. The complex, which is known as “The Edge,” will be located along the 1600 block of West First Street at the site of the existing Westside apartments, which have been vacant since the spring.

The apartments will cater to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center students as well as employees of the medical center complex…

The Forsyth County central submarket had just 98 vacant apartments in March 2013, but more than 1,000 units are proposed for the area, including the 243-unit Plant 64 project at 500 W. First St., the 170-unit Chatham Mill project on Chatham Road at Northwest Boulevard, and the 205-unit Brookstown apartment complex under way near the BB&T Ballpark on West First Street.
