I noticed some construction at the entrance to 11 Galleria across from First Flight Credit Union. Anyone know what is going there? Could it be Mello Mushroom or Carolina Ale House?

South Tar River Greenway Phase 2 Project is scheduled to be complete in March 2011. But that depends on weather. Recall this greenway will attach the dogpark with Greensprings Park. A significant addition to the greenways.

More info about White's Theater downtown was built in 1913. The Redevelopment Commission currently owns it. It received renovations in the mid 1930s and early 1970s and closed down in the late 1990s.

These traits can change, but as of right now:
*Three stories, plus the fly tower.
*The seating will be able to facilitate four different arrangements (end stage, thrust stage, long thrust stage or arena).
*Total construction cost are around $3,126,738
*Redo the fly tower: $94,100
*Redo the front elevation: $83,000


More photos plus PDF here

This is as of September 2010 though....

I'm not sure if this was ever posted here. It is the redevelopment plan released by the city council in 2006. Four years later and you can see where some of it has gone to plan, while other things have gone off track. Good read if you have a few minutes. Link here

The Daily Reflector

Here is an interesting article. The Feds are apparently looking at moving into the downtown area. Anyone have any ideas on what could be coming in?

Very interesting. A 15 year minimum on top of that. I don't care what kind of government entity it is, this is the kind of "people" we need downtown. Plus 22k is a LARGE space. I wonder how many people would work there. It says it needs 250 parking areas, but I assume the general public would use some of them.

This could be what we need to build a new building/parking deck downtown. I just checked MLS and there currently isn't any space in those parameters that meet the 22k sqft, not to mention the extra 250 parking spots.


Not to go OT on this, but it would be...nice...if the County of Pitt, with all their offices out by the hospital, would eventually move downtown. That could help spur more businesses what we (I) want.

The Feds don't plan to occupy this building until Dec. 2013 which gives adequate time to construct a new building. Now if we could get the rumored new hotel, start on the intermodal center, and get a new building for the Feds, this would be a good jumpstart to redeveloping the downtown area.

Plus the Farmville-10th St connector will be in construction to help move traffic east and west from downtown. The hotel, as of right now, is nothing more than a rumor, but everything else has solid evidence for it.

One or two more "good sized" infux of employees downtown will be all we need to start the cascading effect that we all want. New upper scale apartments, restaurants, entertainment venues (White's theater or the ECU PAC etc) etc.

Does anyone know what we will find out on the dates mentioned? expressions of interest” is set for 5 p.m. on Jan. 3, a market survey has an estimated due date of Jan. 12, estimated final date for offers is July 15. I wanna know what it is now!
