Businesses, research, residential living come together as Wake Forest Innovation Quarter continues to grow
As Wake Forest Innovation Quarter continues to take shape as a hub of activity where people work, live, learn and play, its officials are exploring this urban-based innovation district’s next phase of development.
“The fact that there’s stuff under construction all the time makes it a little more complicated, but we’re working through that and that will end; although, happily, construction keeps going,” said Graydon Pleasants, the head of real-estate development for the Innovation Quarter.
The Innovation Quarter, an initiative of Wake Forest School of Medicine, which is part of Wake Forest Baptist Health, is in the eastern part of downtown Winston-Salem. It sits on 337 acres, of which 168 acres have been developed by Wake Forest Baptist Health or other entities.
