Introducing the Depot District

The Depot District is a new downtown experience for Reidsville. The vision is to promote the essence of urban village life offering the opportunity to live, shop, work and recreate in a walkable, pedestrian-friendly community. It will provide greatly needed modern retail options and serve as a focal point for shopping, dining, socializing and entertainment. Residents and visitors will find the blend they want, from coffee shops, community parks, music venues, restaurants, breweries, clothing boutiques and art galleries.

The City of Reidsville is now seeking investors and interested parties that want to be a part of The Depot District as they move forward. If you are interested in investing in the revitalization of this area and would like more information on the Master Plan for The Depot District, contact (email).

WHAT'S IN THE DEPOT DISTRICT?

Phase I.png
PHASE 1

THE GATHERING

The Gathering area takes advantage of historic buildings and a strong connection to downtown. It includes repurposing the historic buildings into shops, restaurants, entertainment spaces, art galleries, and other places to hang out and create a new hub for Reidsville that is different and complementary to downtown.

 

A small park located adjacent to The Gathering provides an opportunity for a dog park, community garden, and flexible space and a promenade that looks over natural open space.

PHASE 2

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

This area is all about the convenience of downtown living. Residences fill up the block, providing much needed housing in loft or industrial type apartments that cater to people that want to live in a funky walkable environment. 

​Plans include redevelopment of the northern end of the District to provide trails, open landscape, access to nature, a picnic pavilion for gatherings and a walking track. This area takes an abandoned site and turns it into a community asset. More details on this development are listed in Phase III.

COMMUNITY HUB

This phase includes the transformation of the old Lawsonville School site into a multipurpose community hub that includes places for learning, growth, recreation, crafts, and sharing. It is a multi age group facility that allows grass roots efforts to take hold, skills to be honed, and arts and crafts to be made. 

 

A large flexible field provides places for informal games. A community garden provides a place for children to learn about where food comes from and to promote health and wellness. A walking and running track encircles the gardens and fields, providing a place to take a stroll and get in shape.
