Crystal Towers Apartments:
It appears as if they don't need any additional approvals, but they have to be 100% sure before everyone signs. This is likely to close in Summer 2020. Current tenants will have updates every three months on the progress.

Hoots Brewing Company on Trade:
Do you remember the LGBT nightclub known as The Satellite Club, from back in the 1990s? It was in this building! Hoots Brewing Company's new mural incorporates Hoot's vintage diving helmet with the outer space theme of the former Satellite Club. You may remember the locally famous LGBT themed space mural The Satellite Club painted on this wall, with space explorers and aliens. Hoots Brewing Company is already calling the brewery building Hoots Satellite. Very awesome!

The brewery remembers the former LGBT nightclub that was in this building years ago:

Muse Winston-Salem:
This city history museum is in talks with the City to lease the former Federal Courthouse at the proposed Oliver Park, on the southern end of downtown. If successful, they will change their name to Muse Winston-Salem, the Museum of Storytelling, Understanding, & Engagement. The museum will have exhibits and offer walking tours of the city, using the many bike & pedestrian paths that intersect at this building and park. The building can also host events and discussions on the city. The paths that intersect in this location create a bike and pedestrian cultural corridor, connecting several museums, universities, parks, and attractions. If approved, the State Highway Patrol will continue to lease the top floor and this museum would lease the ground floor.
