The Evans St store cut hours a long time ago but the Firetower store is still 24/7.

That would be an interesting purchase... I wonder what their intentions with it would be...

I remember going there a lot when I lived at the apartments nearby. That HT was pretty... ghetto truth be told that whole shopping center was dirty.

I'm sure parking is the intention. The new Bio building at the corner of Evans & 10th used to be parking. They need all available parking close to campus that they can get. Add in the fact that that lot is so close to the stadium.

I think the whole Charles / 14th Street / Evans /10th Street "superblock" area is about to change drastically over the next few years.

Those single family homes all over that area...their days are numbered, IMO.

Man - I was hoping that shopping center would be bulldozed & something new & better would be built with that apartment complex coming in across the street. If ECU bought it, be prepared to see that shopping center sit there for a few years and be used as parking & then finally be torn down ... and still be used for parking. Sigh. It'll be 10 years before anything is ever done with that property...just like the apartment complex that used to be across from the baseball stadium.


Side Note: That Harris Teeter has always smelled funky in there, like fish or something.



A grocery store really should look into opening a location uptown somewhere under the new Proximity or something, all these students living in that area would utilize it.

So they're just going to bulldoze all those homes across the road from the Providence apartments in the future you think?

Lets not forget that ECU has some plans for the parking lots downtown on Reade Circle.

The site at 14th may be a nice site for a parking deck considering its also not far from the football stadium. So this could help consolidate parking, which ECU has too many surface lots anyway.

Wonder what happens to Stadium Sports

I have no first hand knowledge of any developments, but I think there's certainly the space available and with those big student developments going on Charles, there is a market for commercial development there.

It would certainly help expand the scope of Downtown. But the plans need to be made before ECU continues to scoop up land near campus and limiting what can be done.

Both the out-parcel with Stadium Sports and the shopping center adjacent are owned by Eric Jarman under the auspices of Sterling Rental Co. I can't imagine he would have just renovated that building and created Stadium Sports to turn around and sell it. I guess he could have sold the shopping center however with that new development across the street it doesn't make much sense. It's about to become much more valuable...
