“Sports media hall of fame moves headquarters to Winston-Salem, hires administrator and gets grant money”

Recently in the WSJ - this sounds great. They’re at Flywheel while searching for a permanent headquarters building.

I'm thinking that the WS Journal Building that is currently being being renovated could be a great site for the Sportswriters Hall of Fame and HQ. Properly designed, I think the lower level of the building can offer a great venue for an exhibits focused display space. It would be a great way to consume some of this lower level space that could be problematic in leasing to general office users. Although I have heard that the owners have been pitching the lower level for a bowling alley/entertainment center as well which could be well received given its central downtown location.

While I'm thinking of it, this same space could also be a great site for the National Black Theatre Festival Hall of Fame as well for the same reasons. This lower level could definitely have the potential of becoming a multi-tenant museum center which would enhance tourism efforts for Downtown. It could provide a convenient place for conventioneers to take some time off & tour while attending events at the Benton.
