Mods. Can you delete the other wilson thread?

Whirligig station. The city is converting an old warehouse into apartments and retail in downtown Wilson! Good to see a town in eastern NC doing so well...or at least making a turn in that direction. Sounds like it will be really cool.

Here is the Business Journal article about this expansion.  445 jobs added in a county that has 81,000 people like Wilson County would be the equivalent of like having 4000 plus job expansion in a Wake or Mecklenburg county.  Great win for Wilson, eastern NC and the state as a whole.  https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2017/11/21/german-firm-pledges-100m-to-expand-wilson.html?ana=e_ae_set1&s=article_du&ed=2017-11-21&u=oAaDx%2B74FoP4qOJ%2By4AU6dhJPpc&t=1511310609&j=79213831

New Innovation Center to be located in Downtown Wilson. Construction to start sometime this fall.  Pretty impressive for a town this size. I know Wilson has already been ranked highly for start up companies. I guess Greenlight  (their city owned high speed internet and tv service) might be finally paying off.

A new apartment complex is on the horizon for western Wilson as long as the project makes it over a few hurdles.

Wilson Planning and Design Review Board members put the initial stamp of approval on Clairmont Place Apartments Tuesday night with the approval of a rezoning request and a design review. The three-building Clairmont project would house 72 units on 3.76 acres at 3702 Ashbrook Drive NW.

“This development is a workforce housing project, which is a competitive process every year in the state for the use of tax credits to help with financing. Those guidelines require certain amenities surrounding the properties,” said Bill Scantland of the BTR Communities Group, which is planning the development. “We have experience through one of my partners with other developments here in Wilson and it is a good community to work with. And we have to show through market studies that there is a demand for this type of development and that need is very strong here.”

The heavily wooded lot already was zoned for residential mixed-use, but the Unified Development Ordinance stipulates multiple family projects with more than eight units in 20,000-square-foot buildings are required to get board approval. Scantland said the long, skinny property lends itself to larger three-story buildings rather than smaller buildings.

The planned buildings, though, are larger in size than across the street at Thornberry Park Apartments or west at Ravenswood Apartments

A planned commercial development on the west side of town got approval Tuesday night to start turning dirt.

Woodhaven Development Group is building more than 170,000 square feet of retail and restaurant spaces on 23 acres on the southwest side of the intersection of Airport Boulevard and Raleigh Road Parkway. Members of the planning and design review board had to decide the fate of the Heritage Corner Shopping Center Tuesday night and after a few questions, the project received the green light.

“We’re really excited to be in Wilson,” said Adam Bickley, a partner at Woodhaven. “We believe in Wilson. We like the city, and we want to be a part of the continual push for growth in Wilson.”

Traffic was among the concerns, but engineer Ron Sutton with Herring Sutton & Associates explained that a traffic impact study was conducted by the N.C. Department of Transportation to determine how to handle volume spurred by Heritage Corner as well as an adjacent housing development planned.

Sutton explained that turn and extra lanes would be added with a traffic light on Airport Boulevard planned in the second phase of the commercial development.

“We want the free flow of traffic during peak time periods on Airport Boulevard and Raleigh Road Parkway,” Sutton said.

Janet Holland, Wilson land development manager, said connectivity within the developments — especially for pedestrians — was considered throughout the process. In addition to sidewalks around the property, there are crosswalks and walkways planned through the nearly 550 planned parking spaces.

“The development will provide sidewalks as a means for a pedestrian network,” Bickley said. “We have worked closely with the residential component to create interconnectivity throughout the entire development, spanning through both the commercial and the residential areas, thereby increasing the developments walkability.”

He added the look of the buildings will be similar to Heritage Crossing.

Several developers are ready to begin construction on new commercial and residential development near the intersection of Raleigh Road Parkway and Airport Boulevard, but a Charlotte-based realty group is looking to bring even more development to the area.

Core Properties broker Jim Bost said there are two outparcels on the west side of Heritage Crossing available for sale, and new signs recently were installed advertising roughly 30 acres south of the existing shopping center.

“We think the 30 acres behind Heritage Crossing would be good for apartments,” Bost said. “It is up to some developer to decide whether it will be apartments or townhomes, but we’re thinking it should be residential.”

Wilson officials in 2019 approved 170,000 square feet of retail and restaurants at the corner, which will be surrounded by 154 townhomes and roughly 100 houses. To the west of the corner developments and car dealerships, Evolve at Heritage plans to build 20 three-story buildings with 24 apartments in each with the first phase limited to six apartment buildings and a one-story clubhouse.

With four new subdivisions in the works in Middlesex and Spring Hope and a $5 million proposal to fix Bailey’s sewer system in the pipeline, southern Nash County is set to see a housing boom.

More than 400 new homes are either breaking ground or in the planning stages in Middlesex and Spring Hope. Bailey is left out of new homebuilding due to a state-enforced sewer moratorium.

Few new houses are going up in Bailey, but existing home prices are through the roof, said Bailey Mayor Thomas Richards.

A home on Williams Street built two years ago for $175,000 sold recently for $225,000. Richards said he purchased his house six years ago for $81,000 and now it’s valued at $210,000.

“That’s a good return for a bedroom community on a sewer moratorium,” Richards said. “We have good people living here going for us.”

The town also has two local lawmakers in its corner. House Bill 207, introduced by Rep. Matthew Winslow, R-Franklin, and cosponsored by Rep. James Gailliard, D-Nash, calls for $5 million in nonrecurring fiscal year 2021 funds to help the town fix its sewer system. Both lawmakers represent portions of southern Nash County. 

“These funds may be used for design, engineering, and the installation of sewer force and gravity mains and a pump station,” according to the bill, which is assigned to the House Committee on Appropriations. 

Richards said the ultimate plan is to be able to send sewage to Wilson, alleviating the capacity issue and enabling state officials to lift the moratorium. 

In Middlesex, the town has experienced some infiltration issues this year, but the town board passed a resolution in January to fix the sewer problems no matter the cost.

Ashton Woods developers want to build at 120-house subdivision off of U.S. 264 Alternative just outside of town, said Middlesex Mayor Lu Harvey Lewis.
