10th Street connector to open at the end of this month!!
Saw the bridge the other day and it really looks good. The gray outline with the brick is a good touch driving along Dickinson.

And the opening of the 10th St connector is supposed to coincide with the beginning of the Dickinson streetscape project, which is supposed to be done in increments. Hope that gets moving to help give all of those new businesses/investments the streetscape they deserve.

Here's another article regarding this expansion...

Thermo Fisher Scientific Expands Pharma Division in Greenville, North Carolina - Area Development

Not sure why the mention of 700 employees in the first article...its been previously reported there are over 1200 employees at the Greenville plant. Very exciting to see this investment in one of the largest companies in Eastern NC. Somehow the spin of WRAL doesnt see the ENC side of this news.

Anyone know the status of the Imperial site development? Last we heard was over a year ago when the City was going back to talk with the three developers...

Greenville City Council tables Imperial Tobacco vote over concerns | News | theeastcarolinian.com

With the new development of brownstone style townhomes, I really like the idea of doing those style homes on the backend of the Imperial site along Atlantic Avenue and bordered by the railroad. An office site along Clark St and a hotel at the Dickinson end could finish out the development. No new student housing, only nice high end market townhomes.

Maybe the City should be contacting the Taft family for help since they are relocating to the neighborhood.

They're being extremely close to the vest about it. I spoke to the former economic development guy Christian Lockemy just be he left of EC and he said he had hoped they would have something to announce before the end of 2018 but apparently not.

I'm not sure how effective putting townhouses directly adjacent to the railroad would be, seems like a tough sell for many home buyers. If the city will fix the crossroads at Alley and or Bonner that opens up Albemarle and Pamlico for development. Those streets are also designated opportunity zones which would help spur development and connect west greenville neighborhoods to UpTown. There are swaths of empty land between the Imperial Site, Albemarle, and Pamlico. Albemarle winds down to 5th and could be a neat little thoroughfare. Theres actually a hill on Albemarle, and those are ultra rare in Greenville

I was thinking brownstone style would be interesting if you gave them a historic railroad feel. You have a great point in that both sides of the tracks should be part of the overall plan. Albemarle Ave was talked about being restored as a commercial area at one point, but it just isnt feasible. Maybe a nice park bordering the railroad tracks...lighted with multi-use fields. Then a pedestrian bridge could be built to the park.
