This is completely off-topic, but I found a story that I thought was interesting. An artist redrew all US state lines to reflect states that have all equal population.




According to this map, Greenville and all of Eastern NC would be a part of a state called "Tidewater" that would run North of Richmond,VA to south of Myrtle Beach, SC. Seems like it would be an excellent state to live in and a tourism would rule the State (with VA Beach, the Outer Banks, Wilmington, and Myrtle Beach.)

The Full story is here: http://news.yahoo.com/us-map-states-...165216893.html


Just thought it was interesting.

I was thinking the same thing


On another note. Does anybody know what they're doing on the south side of Firetower between the Kangaroo station on the corner of County Home Rd/Arlington and Firetower and the Sky Nails? They bulldozed the field like they're getting ready to build something. I wonder if it's going to be more strip mall suites or if someone is building a freestanding business?

Costco usually serves markets over 200k. The Greenville Metro area is at 192k. It's possible that Costco will go in the old HD because its near its competition as well. Also, on firetower between Covenant and the Vet/ Lemongrass shopping center there should be a new Target. It's a huge space and I don't think there is plans for residential area since there is for sale signs in front of them.

I heard a long time ago that another Cookout fast food restaurant was going there on Firetower.

Google maps (or Bing, can't remember which one) already has streets in that space with names for a residential area. I was pretty certain it would be a residential area.

I wish Target would build another store out near the new Wal Mart & Harris Teeter needs to build a new store out across from K&W Cafeteria..there is not another grocery store around in that area beside that Food Lion. Seems like a great spot for a grocery store with all the new apartments popping up around the Medical campus.

Yes it has it on both but there has been no activity over the past 2-3 years there and it has 2 for sale signs for residential and commercial so you never know!

May be just from the layout of the trailer park that used to be there.

I thought the same thing when I saw it. I know they talked about Cookout going down there over a year ago so the location and look of the lot made me think Cookout, but that's just pure specification on my part. They should put in a Firehouse Subs down there too. What would be better than a Firehouse on Firetower!

from the looks of the way they have the dirt foundation leveled out, it's probably just going to be another strip mall to finish off the set of them I would guess...which is disappointing if so.
