I heard the same from a manager. They said it was closing after the new one across the river was built. I suspect the reason for all the neighborhood markets in the area are to pick up on the business that would have been lost. For years, stores like Walmart have been moving to smaller stores instead of offering so many options and products. I'm all for it cause that would might mean better customer service.

Grand China Buffet, 3040 Evans St. in the University Commons shopping center, has closed.
Not a shocker there, that place was filthy...like something you'd expect to see on Restaurant Impossible.

Is there a construction cam for the new Belk Dorm project...Gateway?

These pics are really showing the transformation of Greenville...Parking Deck, Go Science, Community Smith Superblock, and old Georgetowne property. Throw in Gateway and upcoming 10th St connector construction.

The other thing I was thinking the other day was about Publix...anyone heard of any potential sites besides Bells Fork? Would be great to have a place near downtown, near campus that was within walking distance for lots of students...have to wonder what Taft/Ward are planning for on the corner of Evans and 10th. I would think there could be a market for that.

If it is the College View Apts. I am thinking of, hopefully a bulldozer will be involved. There is a good portion of land there that that could be better utilized.

There is a whole slew of Apartments near there, north of 10th, that need to be razed.

Then build another apartment complex (mixed-use?) that incorporates Green Mill Run and Greensprings better.

Or, donate some of the land to the City, so they can increase the size of Greensprings Park.

My understanding is that they will open bids in December. The acquisition portion went quicker than anticipated (although there are always loose ends to tie up).

So it probably wont start until February or so...next summer should be real interesting while that heavy construction is underway. I expect Greenville's crime rate to go down next year while that project is going on. Seriously.
