The Broyhill Furniture Factory, once a fixture in downtown Conover closed their doors in 2004. Shortly thereafter the City of Conover took a proactive approach in helping to ensure the future vitality of the downtown by purchasing the 27 acre property in the heart of the downtown. The City has since paved the way for public and private redevelopment by demolishing the majority of the buildings and building new streets. Moving forward, the City envisions a vibrant mixed-use
town center known as Conover Station.
In 2009 demolition was completed on the majority of the structures on the Conover Station. It is now a prime site that is a “Clean Slate” ready for a variety of uses. The site has numerous qualities that make it favorable for redevelopment:
- Infill Sustainable Development
- Access to existing Services / Utilities
- Redundant Power
- Natural Gas
- New public street, sidewalks and stormwater management installed by the City of Conover
- Brownfield Designated site, tax credit eligible.
- Walkable environment for work or play. Access to numerous services on foot; restaurants, retail, banking, medical and civic.
- Located on the future Carolina Thread Trail, a regional greenway initiative providing a connected trail network through 16 counties.
