Yup, the only thing east of the ECU Steam plant is an apartment complex, until Elm Street. Hopefully ECU will be able to buy that apartment complex soon and tear it down as well.

Construction includes the full renovation of an existing 4,000 SF building and the addition of a new 6,000 SF building. We feel very fortunate to be part of such an exciting project here in Greenville, NC.
Veeeryyy interesting. If you recall, Greenville Awning & Neon is currently shares a location with Scotts Cleaners on the corner of 10th & Evans. That whole block is owned by Ward Holdings LLC, which will be a highly desirable area. Ward Holdings is one of the partners for the Georgetown Commons Apartments.

I wonder if GA&N was coaxed to move, or if it was their own decision. It will be interesting to see if Scott Cleaners is moving. I would think if that occurs, then future redevelopment is coming.

Check out this article from January about the 10th Street connector.

"It's a steep price for local business owners like those at Scott's Cleaners on 1-th Street and other's along Farmville Boulevard."

"...at Scott's Cleaners on 10th Street it's business as usual despite the very real possibility there soon may be no business there at all."

"Business and property owners say they have until October to move out or close down their businesses."

Road expansion project causes financial pains for local business - WNCT | 9 On Your Side Greenville NC & Eastern NC News

I remember the story when it came out now. I wonder if Scott's Cleaners are indeed closing down/moving. They own another store on Farmville, which sadly will be affected by this roadwork. Hopefully it works out for them, but I could see some nice redevelopment occurring here.

LOL; same exact thing I was thinking. It seems like there is more and more demolition going on around these days, and its actually needed demolition. But with demolition, comes that painful thought of the Imperial fire.

Should we not assume that Scott's has to close because the state wants to widen 10th from Evans-westward? Even without a turning lane, that dry cleaners sits very close to the street and is probably in the way. My guess is there will be a right turn lane at that location. I at least hope so anyway.

I don't know if any of you have seen Mayor Thomas in person, but I met him yesterday. I was a bit taken aback by his quiet demeanor and the fact that he is not a very big man. Clearly with things becoming progressive since he was elected, he carries a big stick! Haha!

It's bad news on what level? I can see a whole lot of presuming here.

Well you're right, I'm not particularly suggesting that all woman need to be married before having children but the reason why I say this is bad news is because it seems as if in Greenville most of the people I know who are/were pregnant are younger. It's running rampant there with 70% of woman having children without being married. Now if Greenville were a city full of young professionals, then that would be more understandable because they can actually afford their children meaning the amount on welfare wouldn't keep increasing but for Greenville yuppies are in a minority and most of the people who are having children are those who work at Bojangles, Wal-Mart, or even being unemployed.
