Also, Isn't a portion of the block where LL will set up going to be refreshed like the OP, Rumors, etc. on 5th street?
LLB is going into the building being rehabbed by Community Smith. So the same people who are gutting those old clubs.

Go-SCIENCE will occupy the corner of Dickinson and Ficklen. But I can't recall off-hand any official redevelopment occurring in the immediate area.

But gosh, that whole super block of Dickinson/10th St/Evans/Reade is just ready to POP with redevelopment.

  • Full Moon Cafe & Brewery, Manteo, NC
  • Huske Hardware House Restaurant & Brewery, Fayetteville, NC
  • Mother Earth Brewing Company, Kinston, NC
  • Outer Banks Brewing Station, Kill Devil Hills, NC
  • The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery, Farmville, NC
  • The Mash House Brewery and Chophouse Restaurant, Fayetteville, NC
  • Weeping Radish Farm Brewery, Grandy, NC
Brewery Map | North Carolina Craft Brewers Guild

Or add in the 16 wineries in the east, as well.
Vineyards & Wineries in North Carolina | NC Wineries & Vineyards

Might as well add the three distilleries in ENC to the list as well.

Could be a fun concept. Bring in local agriculture and meat as well, etc etc etc.
Exactly like this Bojangles. Maybe extend it to some Tidewater area breweries, even NC beer produced west of Greenville. (Aviator, Big Boss, Red Oak, Natty Greene's, etc.)

Looks like we just need the money to make this happen! I need to hit the Powerball quick!

Greenville is starting to really pick up steam and it is being recognized as such by the media. The Atlantic Cities has specifically named Greenville by name, as one of the locations that will experience high rates of job growth in the next 10 years. They expect high end jobs to pick up as well as the service sector jobs. Manufacturing jobs will probably stay about the same. Read the full story here:

Default Beach Bingo Building

Same thing for Beach Bingo. The land price is going to SHOOT up and spur more redevelopment.

It is so weird to drive from Memorial to 10th St now. It feels like a ghost town in the best way possible.

You're right, the Beach Bingo building isn't historically significant and is currently an eyesore, but it could serve an important purpose. Not sure what the original purpose of the building was, it's not specified in its GIS profile, but it looks like it could have been a grocery store. If so, or if the inside would accommodate it, it would be a great place for a co-op food store. If the entrance were changed to the Dickinson Avenue side of the building, the facade was upgraded, significant landscaping were done, and an outside eating area and small stage were added with some kind of shelter/canopy, it would be ideal given its location and relatively low value. The problem, as you say, is that property values in that area will be skyrocketing soon and I doubt the organization of food co-op has progressed very far at this point. But, it's fun to dream!

The building may be on the large size for a start-up food co-op, but it could be split into more than one unit. A small certified kitchen could be a possibility or another store front that would draw "the creative class" (I assume everyone knows the term, but if not the creative class is the basis of Richard Florida's popular theory of contemporary economic development). Other nearby remnants of land created by the Tenth Street bridge could also be considered for a downtown farmer's market shelter, which would compliment the food co-op.

ECU/the state owns that building and already has plans for it.

GIS has not been updated then, because it doesn't reflect that.

I believe it is up to date. There is still a corner of one lot hanging out into the new roadway. I think they're the lone holdout.
