Reynolda Commons gets a new owner. The mall was bought by a church. | Local news
The Church has posted a brief summary of its plans on its website. The Church has been active in the Winston-Salem area since 2001.
“Now that we own the property, let’s get started on beautifying it, adding new tenants, and preparing to move our church to the property,” the website says. âWe’ll need about $ 3 to $ 3.5 million more to fit out the property – new roof, parking lot, interior work, etc.
âOur vision is to create desirable spaces for local businesses and ministries that want to be part of this community and be part of the upgrading of the entire area.
“The income from the tenants is used to great advantage so that we can pay off our loan quickly and then use more for local, national and international missions and outreaches for the Awake Church.”
The Church said it didn’t choose the mall just because of the space available for growth.
“The location of the property is important because it is at the end of the Bethabara Park Trail and only three miles from our current location,” the church said.
âBethabara is where the first Moravian missionaries settled and built a large flour mill that provided food and shelter for their entire village and even hundreds of refugees.
