The redeveloper of Whitaker Park, the former RJ Reynolds manufacturing campus in north Winston-Salem, has indicated that an out of town developer is potentially building 185 to 210 apartment units. From the Triad Business Journal:
Construction could start by the late first quarter or early second quarter of 2017, Leak said.
“This is a mixed-use project that we are going to develop so the hope is that there are going to be a lot of jobs created by companies in other parts of that park and so some of them might want to live approximate to where they work,” Leak said.
He added that there is an opportunity for the developer to market the units to Wake Forest University basketball and football fans who come into town for the games.
