By radio station you mean WOOW? It's been there at least 50 years, although in the Big WOW top 40 days I think it was on the other side of the street.

Dined at Wasabi 88 last night and our server confirmed that they are moving to the old Fuddrucker's/Tastyville location on Firetower Rd. because their lease ran out. They hope to open the first of the year after renovations are complete.

I haven't heard an official date but I did see on the ECU website where the server jobs don't close until Oct 30.

Until there is a complete change in who actually runs downtown Greenville (the bars and night clubs) it will remain just what it is now. A place where no reputable retailer that actually wants to stay in business for the long haul, would bother locating there. Bars, clubs and pizza joints are all it's good for now. There is no good reason, other than the prevailing atmosphere, that there are no tall buildings, decent hotels and other amenities in the downtown of a city the size of Greenville.

Greenville will continue to be looked at as a peon town until they do something about the downtown.

I don't know about the fate of Downtown Greenville, NC at the moment; we are taking strives to make it better but we aren't really attempting to bring any retailers, office space, or even more apartments to our downtown. Yes, Downtown is planning new infrastructure such as parking garages, as mentioned on the video on Greenvilleonline.com, a hotel, and doing some "improvements" to the streets to keep traffic low/smooth in the area but the only problem is (in my opinion) is there isn't enough traffic. I'm not saying Downtown Greenville should be filled with cars, but if we somehow knew how to bring more traffic (both vehicular and pedestrians) then maybe more retailers would begin looking at Downtown. Why would any logical retailer open a business where traffic is minimum? I'd want my store in the busiest part of town, or pretty much where McAlisters Deli is. Bring more traffic, so more keep can see my establishment and maybe I'd consider moving to the area.

I'm not saying Downtown should build towers, a skyline or anything but we need to make it desirable.

The first and foremost thing to do is make it safe. Downtown is well known to have problems with murders, muggings and assaults. Particularly once the sun goes down. Get rid of those businesses that attract these elements and the problem goes away.

We've had this discussion before and there are people who question where the bars/clubs are supposed to go. I don't care where they go, they just need to leave downtown. The students at ECU don't have a God given right to have a place to drink and act like fools. Let alone an entire city block full of places to do that.

Maybe north west Greenville needs some good old fashioned gentrification. That area is very close to downtown. I've seen it done before and it can work wonders for downtown areas. Look at Annapolis, MD. You would not have recognized it 30 years ago.
