Where was the elbow room at? I had the impression it was going to be the few buildings that included the hair place, the hooka bar, the op, hard times, the phoenix (thank god) and the stop shop

Wasn't Elbow where the Phoenix is now?

You would need not only a willing developer, but the City Council would need to be on board. If that means help streamlining the process. Or making favorable tax breaks for X number of years.

I forgot if this has been posted, but the Burger King at 10th and Greenville is closed and being remodeled. I guess to keep up with the Jones' (McDonalds).

A new educational marker has been installed on the South Tar River Greenway, summarizing a local educator’s six-month research project into the river’s history as a transportation artery.

Rezoning request worries residents: A far-reaching rezoning plan that would open up 41 acres of foreclosed property along Regency Boulevard to the development of high-rise apartment buildings is awaiting the approval of the Greenville City Council.

I read that article. Those folks are upset because they bought patio apartments and thought that they'd have their own little world all to themselves. Well, if that's what they wanted then maybe they should have bought the 41 acres themselves.

And I'm all for building the right things in the right places, but you have to eventually start building up, instead of constantly building out. Greenville is a perfect example of urban sprawl at it's worst and it continues each day. Because of the condition of the downtown area, there is no core in Greenville. It's just spread over a whole lot of square miles of business, schools and houses. And the planners are to blame.

I know what the excuse to build the road was and I'm just not buying it. They said it was to provide another way to get from Evans over to Memorial but when I see which way the backups are on Evans, I didn't think Regency was going to do much of anything. And it doesn't. I mean it's a divided 4 lane road. Those are designed for heavy traffic. You can tell a lot about a road by looking at the curb cuts. Those are breaks in the curbing where driveways or other streets enter onto a road. There are quite a few acres of undeveloped land there that were basically landlocked until Regency was built but it's not that much.

Regency cannot go any further east. That area is locked up by current developments.

I think the money would have been much better spent turning Evans into a 4 lane divided (no center turn lane, I hate those) road.
