Furniture showroom might come with gym and pool

High Point Furniture Showroom

Will a future furniture showroom building in High Point offer visitors a workout and swim?

Freeman Kennett Architects of High Point has been hired to plan renovations for an old YMCA building at 401 S. Main Street in the city’s downtown furniture market district. Peter Freeman of the firm declined to name his client but said it’s a furniture company that wants to use the building for showroom space.

The structure was built in 1925. It was purchased in 1991 by High Point attorney Joe Floyd, who converted it into law offices and a private health club. Floyd restored the facility’s gymnasium and swimming pool to pristine condition. He recently told the High Point Enterprise that he’s received a “good offer” for the property, which the Guilford County tax office values at more than $500,000.

Will the next owner maintain the gym and pool, which Freeman said are still in good condition, for use during furniture markets? It’s far too soon to say, the architect told HFA.
