The City of High Point announced that they will be building a stadium in the location of the old High Point Enterprise building. They will also be supporting a development area around the stadium which should include a children’s museum as well as restaurants and shopping.

This has spurred at least one of our clients to take a good look at their property and they were inspired to start a remodel of their apartment building – the Greenbriar – located on Lindsay Ave. We have been working with them on getting the units ready, and the entire process has been very exciting.
The units themselves are 1 bedroom, 1 bath. But the closet space is ridiculously good! We’re talking walk-in closet, plus a wall of closets in the bedroom. Each unit has an exposed brick wall in the bedroom, which adds a touch of texture and unique character to the apartment. Additionally, there is a wall of windows in the living room and bedroom.
We decided to take advantage of the tremendous amount of natural light and open the wall between the kitchen and the living room. We made it a half-wall with a bar top, this will allow residents to take advantage of the bar area for table seating. The kitchens have been updated with beautiful stone counter-tops. and a textured back splash.
We have 1st floor and 2nd floor units available. The upstairs apartments have wood-look, laminate flooring. We made sure to add sound-reducing padding under the laminate, so as to reduce the amount of noise for the downstairs residents. The downstairs units have been returned to their original look with freshly polished and sealed, luxurious terrazzo flooring.
We are rapidly closing in on the interior remodel. One apartment is completed and two more should be ready soon. But the owner isn’t stopping there.
Additional plans include: adding controlled access doors to the exterior doors that lead to the common hallways. Once installed, we will issue every resident an electronic device that will allow them to unlock the door. We hope that the residents will find value in this added safety feature.
We have contacted award winning muralist Brian Davis with Brian Studios to add some “flare” to the yellow panels that surround the building.
Starting next year, we will begin to upgrade the landscaping.
And finally, we have contacted Emerywood Laundry regarding a laundry delivery service. The
plan is that they will come once a week and residents can have them pick up their laundry for same day service. For obvious reasons, this service will not be available until the controlled access doors are installed.
We are excited to help add to the downtown “experience” and hope that the new residents to the updated Greenbriar Apartments will enjoy the new look and feel of this vibrant apartment community.
