Hanestowne Village


Recommended Posts

The former 550,000-square-foot Hanes plant on Stratford Road will soon be no more. Crews are in the process of demolishing the last of the structure to make way for Hanestowne Village. The 26.5 acres will include retail, restaurants and medical offices to be built in phases.

“We hope to finish the first phase by the end of this year,” said Tim Dockery with The Crown Company out of Dobson. “We are doing all these road improvements and we’re building these structures privately, with no incentives from the city,” he said. With the site expected to bring more traffic, developers plan to widen Stratford Road and install turn lanes that city engineers say have been needed for years but were impossible due to being landlocked by the Hanes plant and railroad tracks.

Dockery says between 10-20 well-known restaurants and retailers are expected to move into Hanestowne Village, with some as soon as the end of 2014.

The TBJ reports the first tenant at Hanestowne Village. LA Fitness is planning to open its first Triad location at the 26.5-acre mixed-use development at a former Hanesbrands plant at 700 S. Stratford Road in Winston-Salem. It is one of the most prominent fitness clubs with over 500 clubs across the United States and Canada with locations in most major markets in addition to California including Florida, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Seatte, etc...

Chicago-based Studio 222 Architects LLC on April 21 filed a $2.3 million commercial building permit for the fitness center, public record shows. Andy Bragg, director of development for LA Fitness parent company Fitness International LLC, confirmed that the facility will be an LA Fitness location. LA Fitness has one North Carolina location  in Charlotte.

The 42,000-square-foot Winston-Salem fitness center will be built new in the center of the property, along with another 42,000-square-foot retail store and an additional 22,000-23,000 square feet in retail shops, said Tim Dockery, principal with project developer The Crown Cos. of Dobson. Some of the retail stores will be open in the fourth quarter, while others will open throughout 2015.

The entire project will span between 200,000 square feet to 300,000 square feet and cost between $45 million to $60 million to fully build out, Dockery said. The acreage fronting South Stratford Road will be developed into outparcels for restaurants and a financial institution, while the acreage closest to Business 40 will be developed into medical office space.

Omega Construction Inc. of Pilot Mountain late last year was tapped to demolish nine former Hanesbrands Inc. facilities spanning 526,483 square feet at the project site. Barry Hennings, president of Omega, said demolition is on schedule to wrap up this spring. All of the former Hanesbrands facilities have been torn down, and Omega is working to clear concrete and masonry debris, Hennings said.

The TBJ reports:


Construction is active on 117,000 square feet at HanesTowne Village, a new mixed-use and retail center at 700 S. Stratford Road in Winston-Salem. The first phase of the new retail center will be anchored by LA Fitness ( as previously reported by the Triad Business Journal) and a Walmart Neighborhood Market, said Dustin Hunter, project manager for Omega Construction Inc.

Omega is building three retail outparcels totaling 23,200 square feet that will stand alongside the 41,000-square-foot LA Fitness. Omega on Sept. 15 pulled three permits totaling $1.61 million for the properties, according to public record. The 42,000-square-foot Walmart Neighborhood Market is being built as a standalone retail parcel by Gillam and Associates Inc. of Aiken, S.C., Hunter said. Gillam has an extensive retail and grocery portfolio and has built shopping centers across the state. Walmart has expanded its Neighborhood Market grocery concept aggressively in the Triad this year and last, with new stores planned in Greensboro, Lexington and Kernersville. HanesTowne Village will be the third Walmart Neighborhood Market in Winston-Salem. A location on Meadowlark Drive is set to open this fall and another is planned for the Northchase Shopping Center.

The LA Fitness and three accompanying retail outparcels, as well as the Walmart Neighborhood Market, will be located inside the 26.2-acre HanesTowne Village site, which was formerly home to nine Hanesbrands plants that spanned 526,483 square feet. Five additional retail outparcels will front South Stratford Road. One of those outparcels will be home to a two-story, 6,500-square-foot Bank of North Carolina (NASDAQ: BNCN) branch with ATM and drive-through and is slated for a spring 2015 opening.

The HanesTowne Village project is being developed by The Crown Cos. LLC of Dobson. Principal Tim Dockery said this week that active construction on the first phase of work should be complete by the fourth quarter, with tenants moving in during the first and second quarters of 2015. Tenants have been eager to lease up the first-phase buildings, particularly because the barriers to entry are so high along South Stratford Road, Dockery said. “It’s sort of leasing itself,” Dockery said. “There are certain areas where it’s hard to find property, so when you do have property that’s being developed, there seems to be a fair amount of demand.” Dockery has said project costs could reach between $20 million and $30 million.

Here's the illustrated map that shows what has been announced for Hanestowne Village. Newly announced this week in addition to P.F. Chang's is Tijuana Flats, a fast casual Mexican place out of FL will be opening their first Triad location here, along with the North Carolina franchisee for Muscle Maker Grill is planning four locations in the Triad, with their first site already secured in Winston-Salem's HanesTowne Village development. The restaurant chain, started in 1995 in New Jersey, now has locations in about a dozen states and focuses on providing healthier options — smoothies, wraps and heart-friendly entrees.

. Sounds like they are also close to inking a deal with a coffee shop. I wonder if it is Caribou Coffee or another national purveyor? The Crown Companies have really hit a home run with this project. When they were touting the back of the property for office, I initially thought they were pretty far off the mark. Considering that the office sector is still coming around I thought that multi-family would have been more feasible. The 55,000 square foot bldg. with Lyndhurst OB/GYN is kickstarting that portion in good fashion. It appears that it will be a well done office park, with the walking trails and the small lake (storm rentention pond) providing a nice aesthetic.

Updates from Hanestowne Village include the addition of a Starbucks Drive thru coffee shop under construction as the last out parcel in the center. An adjacent retail building will house a Sleepy's Mattress Ctr. along with the Triad's 1st location of FL based Tijuana Flats fast casual Mexican Grill. Fleet Feet Sports has moved into a larger space in the main building and is open for business as is the Triad's first Hickory Tavern, which as been doing great business since its opening a few weeks out. The Triad's first site for PDQ's has opened on the corner lot at the intersection of Stratford & Ricks Drive. P.F.Chang's framing is almost complete & anticipating a September opening. The office park portion at the back of the property is coming along & the first office building, a 55,700 sq. ft. $5.5 million 3 story building for Lyndhurst OB/GYN will be under construction shortly.

The landscaping & attention to detail really sets this center a part. A welcome departure from the old Hanes Mill complex.

Had lunch at the new Hickory Tavern today while in town. My California chicken sandwich was actually tastier than the ones I've had in Charlotte at the midtown location, or at Wesley Chapel. I do hope all the trees and shrubs will fill out quickly, all the asphalt and brick and concrete had the site on bake in today's 100 degree heat. Looking forward to seeing the other restaurants fill out the center.
