A catalyst development project is happening at the center of High Point, NC, featuring a hotel, apartments, offices, shops, and a grand plaza just beyond the outfields of the new baseball stadium. The Outfields development will be donned with the art and history of the local furniture heritage and will be a place of community – attracting people to work, live, and play in the city. The new development will include:
⇨ The Bedrock
Office/Retail – Now Available for Leasing
Stock + Grain Assembly Food Hall- Now Available for Leasing
⇨ Mixed Use, Retail and Office
⇨ Apartment Complex
The Bedrock is a foundational component in the renewal of downtown High Point. The industrial and historic feel of the building combined with state of the art amenities allow for The Bedrock to serve as the new hub of connectivity for the city of High point, its workers and its residents. The space creates jobs and opportunities for small business, restaurants and more to join in on the renewal of downtown High Point. The revitalized location invites families, local business and market-goers to a new, year-round, community centered environment that includes The Bedrock as a vital part of the project.
Since it was marked by a surveyor in 1856 as the “high point” on the tracks of the North Carolina Railroad, the City of High Point has been a place of convergence. The city brought together materials, craftsmanship, and commercialization over time to become the residential furniture capital of the world. Twice per year, the city hosts an average of 75,000 people from around the globe, generating a statewide economic impact of $5 billion.
High Point’s Vision
Local leaders have recognized the importance of creating a hub in the downtown that can serve as the convergence point for a new exciting and sustainable economy. This new place will not only work in support of and in synergy with the furniture economy, but it will celebrate the furniture heritage of the community, while linking the downtown with the surrounding quality institutions such as High Point Regional Hospital, which employs over two thousand people, and High Point University, which has grown from twelve hundred to five thousand students and has invested 1 billion dollars in new development and capital improvements since Nido Qubein became the university’s president in 2005.
