Saw a notice in the paper today about a VCC for two brownfield properties at 283 and 289 Brawley Street (~1 acre).  They're currently owned by Wakefield, but West Main Partners, LLC intends to acquire the property and develop it for mixed-use commercial and multi-family residential.  The property was once used for dyeing and dry cleaning.  West Main Partners is registered to Blackstock Development, the same group who owns several parcels on West Main (355, 311, and 277 aka Piedmont Bonded Warehouse).  This could also be related to "Project Edge" mentioned on the previous page. 


And IMO, it's positive to see that Wakefield is willing to sell these properties.  Hopefully they'll eventually sell the large one next door (seems the best use might be a park).

^Not sure if this deal fell through or if they're just testing the market first, but the Wakefield properties north of St John have been listed for sale.  It's going for $365,000 per acre.  The listing says +/-8 acres, but GIS says it's only ~4.7 acres.  It's a challenging site for access reasons and a creek running through the site, but the location is fantastic.  I hope we can manage to get a solid development here.
