Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is driving the redevelopment and economic revitalization of a large section on the eastern edge of downtown Winston-Salem. The latest evidence of this development is Wake Forest Biotech Place, a state-of-the-art multipurpose biotechnology research and innovation center and the sixth building Wake Forest Baptist has opened in the growing Piedmont Triad Research Park.
The new research building is a world-class 242,000 square foot historic structure comprised of two former R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. warehouses that have been redeveloped into a modern biotech research laboratory where internationally renowned Wake Forest Baptist researchers are pioneering new fields of medicine discovering tomorrow’s treatments today.
The largest tenant is Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, which includes the Departments of Physiology/Pharmacology, Biomedical Engineering, Immunology and Microbiology as well as the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma. The Piedmont Triad Research Park’s marketing and administrative offices have also relocated to Biotech Place.
Other tenants include:

Biotech Place will employ approximately 450 people and is located at 575 North Patterson Avenue.
The building uses green technologies and is built to LEED standards.
