Recommended Posts

The Triad has some impressive restoration projects underway, ranging from Revolution Mill and Proximity Printworks in Greensboro to the Pepper Building and Innovation Quarter in Winston-Salem.

Here is a list of some Greensboro projects underway or planned...

Here is the greatest historical renovation and restoration project in the area Old Salem.   But Winston has done a great job with their old factories and warehouses too and all their older skyscrapers from Pepper Bldg,  RJR etc.     Old Salem is a great attraction for the area and state.

Not a new project but new water and sewer lines and sidewalks going in at Old Salem.  Couple photos from today.  

By the way Old Salem is completely closed right now including the retail shops like Winkler Bakery (which was a disappointment for me but understand) I did drive over to Deweys though.

The Mock Judson Hosiery Mill in Greensboro, on Oakland Avenue near UNCG and the Coliseum, has been sold and will be converted into apartments:

https://www.bizjournals.com/triad/news/2022/04/22/mill-sells-for-76-million.html

A previous owner had planned to convert the mill into 173 apartments, but the project stalled after some demolition had been completed. The new buyer is an LLC with the same address as Capital Broadcasting Co., developers of the American Tobacco Campus in Durham. CT Wilson, who was the contractor for the Revolution Mill renovation, will be the general contractor.

It is great to see another of the Triad's historic mills find new life. This location is just a block from the corner with Scrambled, Hops, and Bites and Pints. I think the Spring Garden corridor has tons of potential.

still love Old Salem.  I love the fact is an active neighborhood not just a outdoor museum like Williamsburg.  The mixture of private homes within the Old Salem area is great.   Winklers Bakery one of my favorites and always a stop to pay homage at the site of the first Krispy Kreme. 

Before I saw this thread I posted photos of the historical Shell clam station in another thread hereare a couple from it too. 

Nice to see tour groups again even saw a large one from St Gabes in Charlotte today. Probably 50 kids and a lot of frazzled looking adults.

this is a great looking small boutique hotel in downtown Greensboro.   Greensboro has preserved some great buildings downtown and still love the now named Lincoln Financial aka Jefferson Pilot Life building.

The Greensboro History Museum is the best local history museum in the state.  No other city has such a good museum outside the state history museum in Raleigh.  Charlotte's history museum is half the size and most cities and parts of the state the city history museum is very small.  Bravo Greensboro. 

Great museum if you have not been recently pay them a visit it is free and air conditioned!
