She's been on weekends and found it closed as well. Just randomly.

The former AAA building on Greenville Blvd. is being demolished today. Is this for more auto dealership lot space or for something new?

I'm guessing you are referring to Thai 360 at the corner of Evans and Reade. They apparently are closed on Mondays. They also close from 3-4:30 PM which is not uncommon for Japanese or Thai restaurants. Thai Kitchen is the same way, as is Tokyo on Memorial. Maybe there were closed at other times for various reasons but I can't say why.

That particular lot has not been very successful over the years for whatever reason. When I moved to Greenville in 06 there was a pizza buffet/sub place called Alfonso's there that went out of business. After that there was some other restaurant there, and now Thai 360 which used to be located on Memorial under the name Saeng Thai. They have been around for a long time and seem to be doing okay though.

According to the city manager at the council meeting tonight, thankfully the city is shelving the Evans Street Gateway project for now pending the new development at Evans and Reade. They don't want to shrink a road that may be leading to such a large development. So happy to hear some common sense coming from there for once!!

I was downtown yesterday evening. The VC isn't open yet, but they appear to be close to being ready. Their bar is completely stocked.

^^ Great pictures, thanks Bojangles. This development is really a great start for uptown development. Maybe this will encourage more commercial development down there. If we could get another block of clubs wiped away & redeveloped that would be grand. The Visitors Center, Bankruptcy Court..all going to be a nice start for the area. I am more hopefully about uptown development now than I have ever been.

Interesting. I know they have had a soft opening. Maybe they are waiting for the students to get back?

I haven't been able to find a website or a Facebook page, though I haven't looked today. Do they have any sites up?
