Landscaping begins at former LA Reynolds site | Local

Landscaping work began on the former LA Reynolds Garden Showcase site in western Forsyth County, about 3½ years after the 37-acre property was purchased for $2 million.

Mayfair Street Partners of Alpharetta, Georgia is the developer. In 2018, he opened a local office in the Winston Tower in downtown Winston-Salem.

Simon Burgess, Mayfair’s locally based managing director, could not immediately be reached for comment on an update on the redevelopment.






Buildings have been demolished and site preparation is underway at the former LA Reynolds Garden Showcase on Styers Ferry Road.

The LA Reynolds business, which had operated since 1979 at 4400 Styers Ferry Road, ended operations in the summer of 2017 amid a family dispute over future plans for the site. The nursery, landscaping and gardening business was operated from four buildings with a combined area of ​​28,443 square feet. All of these buildings were recently demolished to pave the way for redevelopment. In September 2018, Winston-Salem City Council approved Mayfair’s rezoning application to convert the property into a $32 million mixed-use development. At that time, plans called for the development to include 229 apartments and approximately 47,000 square feet of commercial and clubhouse uses in a total of eight buildings. The site plan shows 24,000 square feet of retail space, as well as spaces for a restaurant, dining room, brasserie and clubhouse.

“The Meadowlark Drive area is developing well with plenty of single-family housing, and we believe there is great opportunity for garden-style apartments in the area,” Burgess said in a July 2018 profile article in the Winston -Salem Journal. The site would feature open spaces offering a dog park, terraces and greenway trails. The plan would be to retain two of the planned new buildings for retail and restaurant purposes, as well as a farmer’s market. The site has 133 parking spaces. The proponent would be required to construct a right turn lane from Styers Ferry to the site. Since the complex would increase traffic, the developer is required to post a bond of $250,000 for future traffic improvements if they are needed. Mayfair expects its hospitality division to operate the food and beverage retail sites. Preliminary plans are for apartments of 1,000 to 1,100 square feet and a monthly rent of $1,000 to $1,100.
