Case goods manufacturer and distributor, Najarian Furniture, recently announced that it has acquired the lot at 113 West Green Drive in High Point, NC and will break ground on one of the most sought after locations in High Point Market’s popular Commerce to Green Street quadrant.
The company, who began exhibiting in High Point some thirty years ago, has been showing in the area’s popular 220 Elm Building since 2009. Michael Najarian, president of Najarian Furniture, revealed that the company had been looking for some time to build its own free standing building, but found the right location only now.
He states, “With the growth of our company, the lifestyle brand we’ve created, as well as our belief in culturing strong, lasting relationships, it’s essential we have a space that’s perfectly suited for our current and long term business goals.”
With plans to break ground in June, the company, who is working with High Point based Robbins Architecture on design, will build a Modern French inspired, three-story 40,000 sq-ft free standing building to be completed early spring 2018.
Najarian says, “We’re very excited about what this means for our company and are so grateful to our loyal customers and friends for making this possible. We’d be remiss too, if we didn’t thank Heinz Kattenfeld and the 220 Elm team. They have been incredibly accommodating and great to work with. They have certainly played a big part in our success and we will remain in their debt.”
The .34 acre lot, which was closed on mid-February, was previously owned by Clarence M. Ilderton and operated as a service station from 1961 through 1997. The building was razed in 1997, per the original owner, and has been a vacant lot since. The land is zoned for Central Business. The company will work with locally owned and operated commercial contractor, Kirkland, on construction of the build.
