Pepper Building
104 W. Fourth St.
Bond funding: $1.6 million

The developer, Coe Pepper LLC, is proposing to use the first floor for commercial development, including a restaurant, and convert the upper floors into 54 units of rental housing: 44 one-bedroom/one-bath, five two-bedroom/two-bath units, and five studio/one-bath units. Units will range in size from 310 to 786 square feet, and market rate rents will range from $675 to $1,218 per month.

The developer has agreed to set-aside six of the 54 units (11 percent of the project) for workforce eligible tenants for a period of time equal to the loan term. The six units will rent for $575 per month and are affordable to households with incomes below 80 percent of area median income.

Projected total project cost is $7,952,766 and funding sources would consist of bank financing, federal and state historic tax credits, equity from the partners, and the City financing of $1,600,000 in bond funds.

757 North Apartments
757 North Chestnut St.
Bond funding: $1.25 million

The developer, Laurel Street Residential LLC, is proposing to build a 115-unit multifamily rental development, consisting of 14 studio units, 83 one-bedroom, and 18 two-bedroom units. Unit size will be 500 square feet (s.f.) for the studio units, 615 to 766 s.f. for the one-bedroom units, and 811 to 1,005 s.f. for the two-bedroom units. Market rate rents will range from $1,045 to $1,445 per month.

The developer has agreed to set-aside a minimum of 25 percent of the 115 units (29 units) as workforce housing units for households earning 80 percent of the area median income for ten years, consisting of 14 studio units renting for $757 per month and 15 one-bedroom units renting for $841 per month. After the initial ten-year affordability period, a minimum of 15 percent of the units (17 units) will be available as workforce housing units for households earning 80 percent of the area median income for an additional 20 years.

Projected total project cost is $15.0 million, and funding sources would consist of bank financing, equity from an equity partner and the developers, the land grant from the City approved November 16, 2015, and City financing of $1,250,000 in bond funds,

Laurel Street Residential is partnering with Goler Community Development Corporation to develop the remaining parcels in Goler CDC’s Patterson Avenue project.


 

Bond Economic Development Projects

Voters approved $20 million for economic development sites and infrastructure. As a Dec. 31, 2015, two proposals have been approved, totaling $1.03 million in bond funds.

Enterprise Drive
Union Cross Business Park
Bond funding: $500,000

The city agreed to provide $500,000 in bond funds as a matching grant to build a $1 million extension of Enterprise Park Blvd. at the rear entrance of Union Cross Business Park. The extension will provide access to additional developable land. It would also provide secondary entrance and exit into the park, addressing a major safety concern at the park.

The city’s participation is capped at $500,000. The balance of the cost will be contributed by other sources. The parcel of land that could be accessed from the extension contains approximately 16.25 acres and could support a building of up to 150,000 square feet.

A building of this size would generate new city property tax revenues of $43,000 per year based upon a $6.0 million construction cost and $2.0 million for machinery and equipment. Such a project would pay for itself in approximately 10-12 years plus create an opportunity for new job growth in the community.

Speculative Building
Union Cross Business Park
Bond funding: $533,640

Winston-Salem Business Inc. plans to construct a speculative building in the Union Cross Business Park of about 50,000-60,000 square feet, with expansion capability of at least 20,000 additional square feet.

The building primarily would be marketed towards companies seeking to relocate to Winston-Salem. Once the building is sold, the city funds would be repaid to the economic development loan fund to be used for future economic development purposes.

The projected total cost of the project is $2.5 million, of which $1,966,360 would come from the from the Dell Repayment Fund and $533,640 from the economic development bonds.


RUCA (Revitalizing Urban Commercial Areas) Phase III

Voters approved $2 million to finance a third phase of the city’s Revitalizing Urban Commercial Areas (RUCA) Program to help revitalize some of the city’s declining urban commercial areas. Three areas have submitted proposals for potential projects, one of which, for the Patterson/Glenn area, has been approved by the City Council.

 Limited Obligation Bond Projects

Renovation of Union Station and the improvements to the Benton Convention Center are being financed with limited obligation bonds. These bonds do not require voter approval because they will use Union Station and the convention center as collateral.

Benton Convention Center
Bond funding: $17.5 million

This project includes a variety of improvements and renovations recommended by a facility assessment and economic analysis of the Benton Convention Center. The recommended improvements will improve the marketability of the convention center, create jobs, improve operating efficiency, save money, and broaden target markets to include more overnight visitors.

The improvements include adding new meeting rooms and pre-function space, implementing energy-saving improvements to the heating & air-conditioning systems, renovating the exhibit halls, replacing the carpet in all public areas, exterior renovations, and upgrading the lighting, electrical, acoustic and data/telecom systems.

Project: Union Station
Bond funding: $18.3 million

This project will restore Union Station, which is on the National Register of Historic Places and has been designated as a local landmark by Forsyth County, as a regional and local bus terminal. It will also have offices for city DOT. The renovations will include lease space for retail and other uses.

Parking facilities would be provided on the Union Station property for park-and-ride users, and a bus loop would be provided in front of the station for buses to drop off and pick up passengers. The restoration will be designed to accommodate a future expansion for regional and long distance passenger rail service.

The renovation of Union Station would restore each of its three floors. The top floor would be reserved for transit uses, while the middle and bottom floors would be used for retail, office space, or related uses.
