No. The new apartment/retail complex on that block will have its own parking deck, located roughly about where Ham's stood.

I recall taking my small nephew to that theater when the original Lion King came out. I think the spot can work for kids and adults...say this type of schedule....

Noon Madagascar 3

5 Madagascar 3

7:30 Hangover 2

10:00 Hangover 2

You hit the eating times with a relevant audience at those times....and get to hit two audiences. The key is the selection of movies and only running them for like a two week period to get folks in during that time.

With ECU next door, it may not be wise to go down the art house road because they will put out their own art house type stuff. I think the goal would be to get folks into an experience type place, that's why I like the old theater better...its uniquely Greenville....and not just some strip shopping center that could be anywhere.

I don't really think it is gonna look as bad as it sounded at first. Looks like they have a nice storefront and we all know that mattress stores don't get much business so I doubt it will last long. I bet the rent is pretty high too. But since it's the BrodyCo building it you know it is going to look nice. And if there is a restaurant beside it then it won't be JUST the mattress store so that doesn't look as bad. I do wish they would have just put another restaurant there instead.

Anyone heard anything about a new store over there? I think they definitely have plenty of space back there to add a couple of big stores. The only thing I don't like about that area is that they put the Fresh Market directly in the middle so now if they add a new big store back there then no one will be able to see it from the road. Seems like poor planning on their part. Hopefully they will buy the school bus shop or whatever it is because that would give it another nice entrance to the shopping center and would solve that problem. What is it they call that shopping center anyway?

They call the shopping center 11 Galleria. That's the one with Dick's, Sears, Khol's and Fresh Market.

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to write a note about the Third Street Community Center that is now in the old Third Street School.

We are working on rehabbing the interior of the school through volunteer efforts and community partnerships. We are excited about building a stronger community for a better Greenville. If you get a chance, stop by and take a look around. We are here for the long haul and determined to see Greenville transformed.

Every third Saturday we host work days from 8:30 to 1:00pm. Come out and join us in taking ownership of your community.

Yeah that would be a good idea. I would like to see them incorporate that into their design. It would be really neat if they could put it on the roof somewhere on the new complex. It would look sort of like a water tower that they have on buildings in New York or something.

I really do not like that name at all. I mean, if they are going for a nice shopping center then it needs a name that people will actually call it by. I mean, places like SouthPoint in Durham and Brier Creek and other shopping centers in the Triangle always have good names that everyone calls them by but no one ever calls that shopping center 11 Galleria.
