Those venues bring in more established acts with older fanbases with more disposable income who tend to make it an overnight trip- meaning hotels, restaurants, and shopping. Plus it'd draw from the entire region east of Raleigh, not just the local metro, similar to minor league baseball.
Would the proposed Preforming Arts Center do this? Or would that be too bourgeoisie? We definitely need something to bring in bigger acts.

  • The green area is the park I mentioned, maybe a Vets Park. Just a thought

That would indeed bring a lot of other redevelopment through there.
Overall a good basic plan, but I'm not sure about placing a park on a busy corner, especially a Veterans Park (traffic, fumes, noise). Not sure if GPD wants to give up their parking lot, but if things get rolling, eventually they may have to. Lastly: Are those brick warehouses on the south side of 10th owned by ECU? I'd like to see them renovated. The metal warehouses in their vicinity have "quick cash sale by ECU" signs in front of them. If this land is owned by ECU, why would they want to sell them (and not tear them down) if this land is in their master plan?

You mean the Theater Uptown project? Yeah I think that's meant for more high culture stuff. I'm thinking something that brings in mid-market pop music acts and comedians who generally tour theater-size venues. Like the Norva or Orange Peel in Asheville, Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, or Amos' in Charlotte. Something that can do both 18+ and the occasional all ages show. Considering the size of ECU it's surprising there isn't something like that already.

Yeah but some cities Greenville's size or smaller sometime have two hospitals such as Florence, SC. So I would expect for Vidant to someday open a hospital in Winterville once the population rises a bit higher.

The performing arts center is a project that is being done by ECU. Its supposed to be down on 1st street across from where you park now for the boat ramp by the town common. The uptown theare is being done by uptown greenville or private donations im guessing. It would be nice and is needed for both to eventually happen for downtown greenville to take a step forward.

You've heard the real estate saying "Location, location, location"? That's why Florence has 2 hospitals. Florence is a hub. It is right beside I-95 and all roads in the area, including numerous US roads, lead to Florence.

GPD will have to give up that parking lot sooner or later. Maybe they will use the parking deck, if it is close to the PD.

The State/Greenville owns all of the land from 10th, Washington, 12, railroad tracks, minus two parcels. ECU isn't selling the land. A lot of the "back operations" and police department will go there. Not sure if they will renovate or what.

I just don't see them investing in a full scale hospital. A major clinic/urgent care/minor emergency department. Something that doesn't require inpatient stuff.
