Fourth Elm Construction is working with a S.C.-based company to develop Encore Retail Shops, a small retail center, along one of Winston-Salem’s busiest corridors. The project is located at 1602 S. Stratford Road, across from Hanes Mall, and will include four bays. The retail center will have 16,267 square feel on the mail level and 9,867 square feel in underground parking. The tenants will be announced later, but there will be room for a restaurant with outdoor seating. Construction is scheduled to be completed in July. Fourth Elm Construction has worked closely with Stitch Design Shop, project architect, and Stimmel and Associates in handling civil engineering. “Fourth Elm is excited to team with the developer and design team to build this project,” said Fourth Elm’s partner Justin Gibhardt. “It is an excellent redevelopment of prime retail real estate in Winston-Salem. The building design, with the lower level of parking, is an effective use of the site topography.” More on this story can be found on the Triad Business Journal.
