There was a time when furniture making in High Point, NC was wildly successful, prompting the build of a massive 13-million-square-foot furniture showroom showcase in downtown.
But that enormous space was only utilized twice each year. The rest of the year, downtown struggled with chains on doors and papers blowing down empty streets.
Enter High Point University and High Point Medical Center, serving as beacons of hope and powerful magnets for top talent and innovative industry to the region.
Elliott Sidewalk Communities was asked by the city to rethink a new downtown economy. The resulting vision included 14-acres to include a vibrant development around a 5,000-seat baseball stadium with another privately owned 7-acres to be developed by ESC.
Then we went a step further to create an exciting work environment. Picture office buildings next to a manicured urban pocket park that’s within steps of a food hall overlooking the stadium - effectively blurring the lines between work and play for total enjoyment.
