Projects & Construction:
I want to thank the photographers and local businesses, sharing updates on projects, who make this thread possible. Without you, these updates won't happen. I don't make any money creating this thread. It is assembled to show those who don't live here what is happening and to share the city with others. For many of us, including myself, this is the only way we can see construction updates; so please continue to support this thread through sharing photographs of construction. If you love this thread, the best way to support it is through sharing construction photographs with us. Without photographs, the updates will end. Thank you, again, for sharing!

This city is attracting the headquarters this month! Three new corporate headquarters are moving to or are in talks to move to Winston-Salem right now. WOW! I will report on two of them below. One is a done deal, another is almost a done deal, and a third is very close to happening!

Corporate Headquarters Moving to Winston-Salem:
Renfro will move their corporate headquarters to downtown Winston-Salem. They are a private company, with revenue expected in the billion-dollar-plus range for 2019. The headquarters jobs are expected to pay an average of $240,000. When the incentives are approved, they will move 225 headquarters employees to downtown Winston-Salem. Renfro has already moved their Design & Innovation division and around 50 new jobs to Bailey Power Plant, in downtown's IQ District, in the past few months. The company should have close to 300 total employees in Winston-Salem when the headquarters moves to downtown. Winston-Salem competed against New York City and Los Angeles, where the company has offices, for the headquarters. No word on what building they will lease for their new headquarters, but it will be in downtown Winston-Salem and possibly in downtown Winston-Salem's IQ District.

Another Possible Headquarters Moving to Winston-Salem:
The City of Winston-Salem is in talks with a data/tech company that, according to the local newspaper, may move their headquarters and around 850 jobs to Winston-Salem. This project is big enough to have a state code name. They plan to make a $13-14 million investment in their office space. We could know more about the company and the jobs sometime next month. Could this be a lead tenant in one of the tall building proposals in downtown's IQ District? I guess we shall see?
