Group might turn Reynolds building into an upscale hotel

(By RICHARD CRAVER, Winston-Salem Journal) - A Greensboro developer is considering breathing new life into the former R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. headquarters by converting it into an upscale hotel.

Reynolds and Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants and Hotels said Thursday they have entered into an agreement that gives the developer most of this year to study the feasibility of renovating the 22-story building, which opened in 1929.

The potential goal: carving out 120 to 180 rooms, as well as a restaurant, bar and event space.
