Poised for Progress and Prosperity

Winston-Salem is wide open for business – with ample commercial sites and shovel-ready land where your business will thrive. Unlike many cities where real estate is tight – and expensive – Winston-Salem offers room for companies to grow at a lower cost. With a variety of options for Class A office space in the heart of downtown and 70 acres of prime buildable land adjacent to the city center, this city is the perfect launchpad for businesses to take flight. One of many exciting developments on the horizon is the redevelopment of Whitaker Park, a 220-acre manufacturing complex, in addition to numerous other commercial sites and buildings that are available or ready for development in Forsyth County.
