The latest development at Wake Forest Innovation Quarter involved the renovation of a coal-fired plant that once powered R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. Developed by Baltimore-based Wexford Science & Technology LLC, the project includes about 87,000 square feet of office space and 24,000 square feet for retail. The renovation added four floors and more than tripled the square footage. While The exposed-brick interior and steel bracing beams provide a backdrop for Wake Forest School of Medicine, which occupies the top two floors. Other tenants include CML Microsystems, Incendiary Brewing Co. and Alma Mexicana, a locally owned eatery. While Walter Robbs Callahan & Pierce designed the building’s shell, CJMW Architecture provided interior design service. Work is slated to begin this winter on a second phase that will add roughly 100,000 square feet of office and retail space.
