Baltimore Developer Breathes New Life Into Former R.J. Reynolds Manufacturing Site

Wake Forest Baptist is showing off the latest addition to Innovation Quarter on Friday, June 13, with the grand opening of its renovated 525@Vine complex. The former RJR buildings in Winston-Salem were brought back to life by Baltimore-based Wexford Science & Technology, a firm that’s become the major landlord within the research park and is helping plot its course in the future.

Despite a recession, Wexford stepped forward to invest in Wake Forest Innovation Quarter after an earlier developer faltered.
