There was an article about the project in the Daily Reflector where the developer stated they were still trying to find the right tenant mix for the shopping center. Many stores that are typical for this type of development are already in Greenville, so they're probably contacting ones that would be new to the region or area. I would imagine that this project will take a while to build out...but I could be wrong. I think it'll be done in a few phases.

Greenville has tricky demographics - the city has over 70,000 permanent residents now, but I think a lot of retailers might be more interested if the town had over 100,000. This doesn't account for the University, however.

I don't think the project as a whole is on hold, though.

Lithuania is right. Most of the big national chain stores are already here. As the population reaches and expands beyond 100,000 you'll see 2 and even more of a certain chain of stores opening. The west side of the city (where the Galleria is) is already fairly well satuarated. The east side of the city, where a whole lot of building is going on, is underserved. That is also the side of the city where Lowes and Harris Teeter decided to open their second stores at.

There has been one distressing development concerning the east side though. Pitt County has decided to table their development plan for the 264 corridor, at least for the time being, and continue to handle requests on a case by case basis. This is the kind of thing that can lead to houses beside shopping centers beside grain silos beside junkyards. In other words it can lead to a hodge podge of development that just looks awful and disorganized.

^I think it'll be sooner rather than later on a few of the stores. That being said, it'll be a few years before 11 Galleria is built out and full. I'm fairly certain that the population of Greenville within a ten mile radius of town is 100,000 right now. Pitt County has more than a 150,000 people now.

I know it will have 15 retail slots and a grocery store. in my opinon 11 galleria should be turned into a mixed use development.

The Grocery Store will be Fresh Market. Which is good in my opinion.
