  1. Phase II of the Innovation Quarter has been updated. Development is expected to commence in 2022. Featuring 10 buildings and a total of almost 3 million square feet to be built in the 28 acres along Research Pkwy mostly between E. Third Street and Salem Parkway.

In Phase II, one million of the square footage will be dedicated to clinical/lab/office space along with an additional 30,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space and u
  2. Thanks for dropping by but don’t be an enabler Nick :-)
  3. She in fact was internationally renowned in own right. The tower is considered the most significant architectural project in the entire Triad along with the old RJR Tower from another era.
  4. Per the WSJ, Ceasar Pelli, world renowned architect, who designed some of the tallest buildings in the world and other major urban landmarks as died at age 92. He was the architect who designed the Wells Fargo (Wachovia) Tower. The 460 foot tall skyscaper was completed in 1995 at the cost of $80 million dollars. Pelli designed the building with Moravian elements which are widely found in Winston-Salem. Notable aspects include the Moravian Arch, which was used in the dome's design and the Moravian Star which was used in the Lobby's mosaics. Pelli said the tower design resembled a rosebud abou
  5. The transformation of the old 18 story GMAC Tower has been coming on strong recently per the Winston-Salem Journal. Prominent Business leader Don Flow and Grubb Properties of Charlotte partnered up on the project back in 2017 to redevelop the tower and adjacent site into a business center with apartments and retail extending to W. Fourth Street. The property was purchased for $6.15 million, with a pledge to spend $10 million on upgrades to the building, including a recently completed street level lobby space.

  7. And so you've admitted that you set it up as a comparison. I rest my case with the jury
  8. The point is if I were you with your history, I wouldn't compare. If you feel you're being misconstrued, then shut up about any comparison and no one can twist your words.
  9. Says the Master of Deflection AlmaPinnix, there's no big fuss whatsoever. Just setting the record straight. One would think that a poster that has been identified by multiple posters over several years as being somewhat provocative regarding such contrast & compare tactics regarding neighboring cities would catch a clue & refrain, but no such luck. The point is that this Galyon station thread didn't need any mention of Union Station in order to be a fully informative post. That's the simple truth of the matter.
  10. Unfortunately the Boi is incapable of not succumbing to resurrecting a city vs city debate because he cannot overcome his passive aggressive posture toward the Camel City. People who have not been active followers on this site for the last 8-9 years cannot truly appreciate the full & complete dialogue that has occurred regarding his exhausting need to have GSO be front & center regarding all aspects of this site as well as other sites. He had a perfectly informative post on his city's train station and even incorporated earlier stations in GSO as part of the dialogue. It was fully c
  11. Now is the first time I have had the opportunity to respond to this post that you have revised numerous times from your original comment, which again long time posters to this space as well as City Data will be all too familiar with. I can assure you that I too have had quite a few PMs from people over the years that don't agree with you and also don't want to get caught up in your manufactured drama . For the record, there have been plenty of posters from places other than Winston that have publicly called out your behavior, Raleigh, Charlotte & even Wash. DC posters come to mind. S
  12. Classic Passive Aggressive Boi Behavior. You could have taken that position several posts back. RichardC gave a personal opinion regarding the aesthetics of the Carrroll SOB project. You offered a different point of view. Check/CheckMate. Yet you could not pass up the opportunity to disparage/denigrate bloggers from Winston-Salem from a totally different forum that's not even a part of this dialogue. This project has not even been a topic of discussion there. Someone WHO LIVES IN CHARLOTTE referenced this project in a post of a different topic. You apparently have been a pretty busy Peepin

  14. This will be the Triad's first location of CycleBar, an indoor cycling fitness center. It will be going into one of the three retail spaces in the Twin City Lofts Bldg. at Fourth & Marshall. It represents at least a partial return of a fitness center to the site since the entire ground floor retail space was previously the location of a Gold's Gym before their lease was bought out by the condo developers. CycleBar has concierge-level service and amenities for riders. It's described as being like a rock concert, with an amazing sound system with DJ booth, custom lighting, and massive video
