Pretty great details about the Stratford Arms tear down.
The university recycled, reused or sold 77% of all waste. Nine trees were removed, but that left 145 trees.

Great to see that their are still people and organizations that value trees. I don't know anything about the former complex- from the few posts on it I'd guess that it was somewhat blighted. If that is true, the transformation would be amazing. Living in a college town, I know that there are often some folks that bemoan any loss of taxable property to a non-taxed entity. Any issues like that in Greenville?

The Daily Reflector

Noodles & Co. is indeed coming to University Commons, and Christinne's is getting an overhaul with a new name.

IIRC, it was built in the 1960s. So its better days are gone, especially in the super-exclusive student housing market. Some of the trees there are fairly large, so it would be disappointing if they were cut down. Now it currently looks like a park, the former apartment shell is completely gone.

People will B&C over anything. But I believe whatever ECU puts there (sans long-term parking), will be an upgrade.

The City is wanting East Carolina to help pay for the cost of the Greenway (From Charles Boulevard to River Birch/Rose). There is a part that will go over ECU's land, plus there will be a spur to some sidewalks that ECU owns.

The playground at the Dream Park is now open, two weeks early. The next project is to install a large picnic shelter, which should be in by mid-November

i noticed today that they have torn down the old Boss Hog's place on 14th street (corner of 14th & G-ville Blvd) along with the other building behind it that use to be Hite & Associates Architecture I believe back in the day. I saw they had a for rent sign on it earlier in the year...clearing that mess out is the best thing they could have done. Will be interested to see what if anything goes there..just an empty lot looks better than that old ratty building.

If I had the cash to do it, I would love to open a Noodles & Company in downtown (uptown) Greenville. I imagine that it would be pretty successful, maybe even a Potbelly Sandwich Shop could do well here long as its advertised right.
I find it mighty funny that I mentioned opening a Noodles & Company back in February, now its actually coming. Seems like some developers must be watching this forum lol

Default Dick's Sporting Goods

The building is looking great and it appears to be almost ready to open up. Thought I would post an updated picture.
