University Commons gains one tenant and loses another. LaVida Massage will be located next to Barnes & Noble (in the former Big & Tall Men's), and the Chinese restaurant next to Michelangelo's has closed (or moved?).

You don't have to build a new facility to have HD cameras. Just HD cameras and switching/processing gear.

Nope, they just upscale their old cameras. Whether you can see the difference between SD and HD depends a lot on your television. If you're watching with a 720P TV then the difference isn't as noticeable.

Just a reminder, Chipotle has opened in the former O Charley's location. Unfortunately, with the way restaurant openings work in Greenville, it will probably be Christmas or 2015 before the line finally dies down and you can actually go get food!

I hoped WITN would have moved downtown before they got their building on Arlington.

But I agree. WNCT, WCTI, The Daily Reflector, and whatever other big media outlet should move downtown.

Could you imagine a evening newscast with with huge window showing the Town Commons in the background, vs the mess they have now?

Plus, there is good marketing to hear something like "WNCT, broadcasting live from Uptown Greenville, your home of the ECU Pirates" (or similar).

Yeah definitely. Sorry, I was referring to some of the recent posts in general that said they needed to just build a whole new building.

WITN didn't have a big enough studio so they needed to build a brand new facility but I think WNCT has a big enough building, they just need a renovation. I like the idea of them moving to downtown. I feel like eventually one of them with move there, as long as they stop reporting about every single shooting/robbery over there.

Walked in the door last night and turned right back around and walked out. The line was literally wrapped around the whole restaurant. I should have known it was busy since its only the second day but I didn't expect that. Might have to try it for lunch on Sunday instead.

The Bread Lady has moved further down the road in a larger building.

You guys are right that you don't have to build a new building as long as you renovate / upgrade existing facilities. But similar to a debate on Boneyard Banter about our football stadium pressbox, aesthetics are meaningful and say something about a place. Our football stadium has one glaring eyesore - the double wide on the south side. Likewise, seeing a facility like WNCT has which is clearly about 20+ years out of date makes a statement. Yes, I want the programming to be good and the quality, but at some point I think you have to realize your studio looks like it's dying and make improvements.

Maybe to you guys' point - they'll move downtown.

McConnell Golf Group agreed to purchase Brook Valley Country Club
The Daily Reflector

Looking at the other courses MGG own, this is huge. Look at the other golf courses they own:



They are WAY above anything in Greenville currently. Which makes it big for Greenville. Plus members receive unlimited access to all eight properties for one fee. Plus numerous other benefits: Private Golf Country Clubs in Raleigh, Durham, Greensboro & Myrtle Beach in NC & SC
