1910 Artistic Studio Dance Theatre / Davis Department Store
The Winston-Salem City Council has been asked to consider a plan by WB Holdings Corp to demolish the old 1910 Davis Department Store and build a new, six-story building in its place. Kerry Avant and Thad Llewellyn plan to replace it with a new building that will contain one level of underground parking, two levels of commercial space and four levels of residential space. The proposal could affect Janice Price-Hinton, who operates a music, dance, theater and performing-arts studio in the building. It's unclear whether the studio would stay or go. WB Holdings is asking the city to close the path between the Davis and Hine-Bagby buildings and sell the city's share of the closed street to the developer at fair market value. If the city agrees, WB Holdings will grant the city five-foot-wide easements along the path.
