314 Apartments Included in Whitaker Park Development Plan

For the second time a former Reynolds American building is slated to be redeveloped into apartments, and it’s being done by the same company that redeveloped the first. From an article in the Winston-Salem Journal:

Plans for Whitaker Park in Winston-Salem include 314 apartments or lofts, a hotel and retail space, the Whitaker Park Development Authority Inc. announced this morning…

Whitaker Park, a former R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company property that the tobacco giant began developing in 1937, is on Reynolds Boulevard, south of Wake Forest’s BB&T Field.

The apartments will be the second renovation of a former Reynolds property by developer Christopher Harrison, who was behind Plant 64 in the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter.

Creating the residential communities at Whitaker Park — in two buildings that were recently named historic sites — will be the first step in Harrison’s project, according to this morning’s announcement.
