Housing a Big Part of Downtown Winston-Salem’s Revitalization

Winston-Salem’s downtown district has come a long way in the past 15 years and housing has played a major role in that revitalization:

In his column this week in the Business Journal, Justin Catanoso looks at just how far downtown has come in the last 15 years. He tells WFDD’s Keri Brown that a big part of the city’s revitalization plan in this area revolves around more housing.

“There are 3,100 residential units downtown, most of them built since 2006. Some 700 have come online in the past year, with more planned. Rents are high; vacancy is low. People are everywhere, a significant factor in the downtown’s steady upward trajectory,” says Catanoso.
