This project will house the Visitor Center, two restaurants, a bit of office space and 93 apartments, all in a sprawling old tobacco building once known as the Hi-Dollar warehouse. Waukeshaw is thrilled to be a part of Wilson’s rebirth.
Wilson is now ranked 18th in size among North Carolina’s 500-plus municipalities. The city has added more than 40 percent in population since 1990, primarily due to a construction of new subdivisions and an influx of new residents. This has attracted new retail and shopping construction, primarily in the northwestern parts of the city.
Once widely known as "The World’s Greatest Tobacco Market", Wilson enjoys a diverse economy today, with a healthy mix of agriculture, manufacturing, commercial, and service businesses.
