Bailey Power Plant:
Are you a developer? Do you know a developer interested in cool industrial buildings? Cross Street Partners is looking for a developer to partner with them on Bailey Power Plant's next phase of construction. All demolition and remediation work is completed. It is a ready-to-go developable shell with several great historic artifacts (saved!) to work with. The power plant also qualifies for tax credits up to half the cost of the adaptive reuse project. To contact Cross Street Partners about partnering with them as a developer on the next phase of their Bailey Power Plant project, write or call: (443) 440-0774 John Renner, Jr.

Looking for trendy office space in an old power plant? 58,000 square feet of office space is for lease at Bailey Power Plant! The office space should be ready for move-in in 2015. Call or write: Cindy Christopher (336) 926-1411

Cross Street Partners is looking for additional retail tenants, including a movie theatre, for the next phase. If you're interested, please call (336) 926-1411 Anyone from retail to restaurants to a brewery to bars that is interested in this space can call that number: (336) 926-1411 and say you're interested in Bailey Power Plant.

This iconic building was once a multi-block 200+ foot (61+ meters) tall monster, operating 24/7 and consuming 5 train carloads of coal a day. The big silos held 600 tons of coal to fire 5 huge boilers, providing electricity and steam for the entire city. The power plant was bought from the Bailey Brothers by RJR to power their growing factory complex and RJR expanded the power plant in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. The large block, where Bailey Park @ East End is located, was once part of the power plant complex, along with part of the block on the other side. It was big! Demolition and remediation brought it down to what you see today, which is still a massive structure. All expansions built after 1949 were demolished as part of the remediation and demolition. The beast was shut-down in 1997.

This should be an awesome place when they finish with it. Being surrounded by thousands of students, thousands of residents, workers at large headquarters, a future hotel, a proposed streetcar stop, movies in the park, the tech jobs nearby, and thousands of workers; it shouldn't take long to find a developer for this phase and lease the building. They talk as if the plans are drawn-up by their architects for this phase and they just need a developer to partner with them to move this phase forward?

Taxed by the Mile:
The state is looking into a tax on the total miles driven. This should become a sprawl tax that could help encourage more people to live in the city and use transportation alternatives, like cycling, walking, or transit.

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EV Charging):
The free electric car charging stations, operated by the City of Winston-Salem, will soon cost money to use. Those wanting to charge at the stations will have to pay between $1.50-$2.00 an hour, starting in May 2014. Winston-Salem is planning to add more EV charging stations around the city, due to their popularity. According to the release, Winston-Salem is one of only four cities in North Carolina offering EV charging stations.
