Also, has anyone else been near the hospital recently? The new children's hospital is basically giving Vidant a whole new look! Its almost finished on the outside and the hospital is starting to finally look like the modern and innovative hospital it is. It gives that area a whole new image and it is great for that to be one of the first things you see when you drive into Greenville from 264
Are you able to take any pictures of the Children's Hospital or Vidant's facade?

It's not a shopping center. It's a industrial park. There is a sign on the property.

I've seen this work being done the last few weeks. Seeing how it's an industrial park, it makes me wonder if it has anything to do with certain small manufacturers having to relocate because of the impending 10th St. expansion.

It is looking really good! also the new apartments on 5th (near the future VA site) have a really nice upscale look.

It does look good! The entire area should be very proud of this sprawling complex that they've paid to build. And it's getting bigger by the day.

Speaking about the drive into Greenville, as much as the City Council loves to streetscape, I would really like to see Stantonsburg Road receive a makeover from 264 to Memorial Drive.

They need to bury the power lines. Put up nice looking street lamps. Install the black traffic signal arms at ever needed intersection. Add an island median. Add dedicated turning lanes. And probably a few other things. other things.

This is the FIRST road most visitors see of the city. It is heavily traveled. This road needs to look good. Plus it will help residents here who travel to the Medical District every day.
