Take a closer look at a prime site in Winston-Salem

(Before someone else snatches it up.)

A new site is ready for development in Winston-Salem, Forsyth County. And it may not stay undeveloped for long. Here’s why.

The 99.4-acre site, owned by WSBI and located at 3200 Temple School Road, is more than a diamond in the rough. Nearby Union Cross Business Park is nearly filled—an industrial park developed by WSBI that is home to manufacturing, distribution and corporate facilities. Other adjacent facilities are up and running as well, including a Caterpillar manufacturing operation and the soon-to-open Herbalife manufacturing and distribution hub. This means the site is already well connected with high-capacity utilities and convenient access to a major interstate.

Plus, the site is certified “ready for immediate development” by the North Carolina Certified Sites program.

In other words, the hard part is already done.

The site is ideal for advanced manufacturers, data centers or logistics operations looking for a prime opportunity to build. The acreage is large enough to accommodate up to a 1-million square-foot facility or several smaller facilities.

Add in the fact that Winston-Salem, Forsyth County is an outstanding place for business* and you have a site that is ready to take one fortunate (and fast-moving) company to the next level.
