East End Winston


Recommended Posts


A couple who grew up in eastern Winston-Salem is embarking on a plan to build a 30-unit apartment building with ground-floor retail spaces on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, a development they hope will be a catalyst for others in a historic Black neighborhood … Called Ram’s Pointe, the development will stand in the block of King Drive between Third and Fourth streets, on a site that has been under remediation because it once had a dry-cleaning business.


“This is something that has been a long time coming,” said Michael Baker, who with his wife Charmon is behind the development through their company, MTB3 Properties LLC. “We have been at this for about 10 years. Charmon and I were always passing and saw the land just sitting there. One day she said, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice to have a mixed-use apartment here, so we could have something nice like they do downtown.’ “


10% of the apartments will be for affordable housing, with the rest renting at market rates, the Bakers said.

With a green light from the Winston-Salem City Council, the Housing Authority of Winston-Salem is poised to embark on the first phase of a dramatic transformation coming to sections of East Winston and North East Winston.

By unanimous vote on Monday, the council approved a site plan amendment for the 4.5-acre site of the former Brown Elementary School in the 1100 block of Highland Avenue, which will become the location of 12 new apartment buildings containing 81 units of mixed-income housing.
