The Attic was one of the best things Greenville had. It could reopen in name but it wouldn't be the same. Acts of the caliber that it drew don't come to venues like that anymore. Times have changed too much I guess.

Sorry for turning the development thread into the Greenville Reminiscing thread :-)

Even though it has its own thread, the football team accepted an invite to the Big East. So there should be an increased paycheck coming, which will help out.

Yep I believe thats the ones I seen, they look pretty nice to be turned into low income apartments ("projects")...

They are building it ass-backwards. Usually the curbs and parking lot go in after the majority of the building is finished. It is done that way so any last minute utility changes don't tear up brand new work. I guess they have the utmost confidence that they got it right the first time.

How about another one of my Hypotheticals?



This would be Arlington Boulevard extension into First Street (blue line). Arlington would be extended northward and then eastward and eventually hook up to 1st Street.

The housing around Memorial, 5th, Moye and Tar River would be redeveloped into upper scale mixed used (pinkish). Treybrooke and Moye (green) could connect to it.

The black shaded area, in my opinion, would become an open park. All the trees would be removed and opened up. The greenway would go through here.

The purple area is apart of the redevelopment corridor.

This would give another east-west corridor, to help with 10th and 5th st. It also would remove that housing and bring in something to increase the tax value.

I like it. It would be a relief for all that traffic trying to funnel down 5th from downtown to the hospital and school of medicine. Is it also possible to connect the entrance to Brook Valley at 10th to Old Pactolus Rd, or would that be too expensive with a bridge and wetland? It seems it would relieve the 10th and Greenville Blvd intersection of some of that traffic from commuters using 264 into the east part of town?
