Originally the Bahnson Company (a private lab for anti-gravity research), 1001 later became the F. Roger Page Business and Technology Center (North Carolina’s first business incubator) and was most recently known as Hewitt Business Center and West Salem Square, where it housed a vibrant small business community. Built in 1924 and looking toward its centennial, this significant structure is under new ownership who will be guiding its renovation and use plan into its newest phase, expanding on its already notable history.
1001 will convene designers, engineers, artists, growers, makers, distributors, retailers, restaurateurs and entrepreneurs, thus creating a culture of open innovation. The proposed tenant usage features Forsyth County’s first shared use commercial kitchen and incubator program; clothing design; small-scale industrial studios; shared office spaces; coffee and tea cafe; and community arts, dance, music, and drama. Health and wellness services will include studios for Pilates and yoga, and retail.
In 2019, 1001 will be bustling with creativity and production once more! This spatial clustering will inspire interdisciplinary collaboration and resource sharing beneficial to the building’s tenants and the greater community – catalyzing economic opportunity and industrial growth.
