Once home to banking giant Wachovia,
the City of Winston-Salem offers downtown
living with a sense of small town charm.
With a population of a little over 200,000,
Wnston's downtown is an eclectic mix of
offices, cool and relaxing nightlife, a vibrant
arts scene and the historic Old Salem.
Two prime properties sit squarely in the.
middle of all the action — the Nissen
Building Apartments and the new, almost
sold out One Park Vista.
Originally built in 1927 as an office
building, the Nissen has been a symbol of
Wnston-Salem's strong business legacy. In
the late 1990s and early 2000s, plans to
renovate the building for resi
dential use finally went into
construction phase. Although
condos were the developer's
original plan, the building is
now home to over 140 high
rise apartments, with rent for a
one bedroom starting at $795.
Two bedroom apartments run
for $1165-$! 700.
Amenities, like a workout
room and rooftop pool with
rentable pexnthouse party
space, seals the deal.
Next to the Nissen is the
new development One Park
Vista. On its website, developers say they
wanted to create a sense of "Uptown style'
and "Downtown living" while keeping a
flair for suburban life. Porches and decks
accompany many of the units giving them
an open and airy feel that'll be just right
when those hot and sultry summer after
noons come our way.
But don't expect One Park Vista to be
as affordable-sounding as the Nissen. One
Park is solely a condominium community,
with prices in the half-million dollar range
or higher. Sounds pricey, but some folks
must like it — only 19 units haven't sold,

If living downtown in a larger city
has you squirming, don't give up
hope. The town of Greenville in
Upstate South Carolina has a beauti
ful, charming downtown area full of
life, food, nighttime fun and more in a
sleepy Southern town size.
Greenville, population 57,000 or
so, sits in the county of the same
name — although the, population
numbers sound small, we're sure
you'll find plenty of colorful gay folk
among the half-million or so people
living outside the city limits.
Like its nearby sister city of Winston-
Salem, the City of Greensboro offers an
exciting but quaint downtown complete
with great foc>d and nightlife. Affordable
downtown apartment residences make
downtown living realistic for young profes
The Elms Apartments, a restored turn of
the century hotel conversion, sits in the
old historic district of Greensboro, above
Table 16 restaurant. The Elm St. residences
range from $675 to $1175 per month in
price and 650 to 1,125 square feet in size.
Nearby dining and nightlife includes Natty
