^ that would be a nice development in a good location if they can make it work. I like how they put "Carolina East mall" on the map. smh

They have two 50K sq ft stores planned. The new Publix stores are 49K. Perhaps the developers are targeting Publix as a potential tenant? It'd be a good spot for one.

I'm not a fan of their proposal for an additional traffic light. I'd rather see them extend an entrance/exit down to the existing light across from the Treetops neighborhood.

if you go down the left side of the Sears parking lot, at the entrance to the Lowes lumber yard area there is a Carolina East Mall sign, still in good condition. I always thought it was kind of funny they left it there.

This development would make a great spot for Publix. In a different thread in the Coastal forum, Someone just announced that a 45,0000 sq ft Publix is coming to Wilmington. This development would be a good fit since there aren't many grocery stores in that particular area of Greenville/Winterville.

Wish there was more space on one end of this development for a new Target. 50,000 sq ft won't cut it.

ECU is finally tearing down the old house in the parking lot area that use to be the Chinese Restaurant across from Sheetz. That whole lot should be available for parking now I guess until future use is needed.

Nice update near the bottom on the Uptown theatre project. Seems only Community Smith is still interested. Weren't they the group that wanted to make a facility similar to Lincoln Theatre? I sure hope so.

Editorial: Downtown grants good for city



The awarding of business grants by Greenville’s Redevelopment Commission is a proven help toward revitalizing downtown and the commission’s move to expand the grant competition should be approved by the City Council.
While awarding $15,000 grants to three businesses last week, the Redevelopment Commission noted that there were nine applicants this year, which is a higher number than usual in the Small Business Plan Competition.


Since the Small Business Plan Competition was established in 2008, awards have been given twice each year to grow small businesses or help new ones hit the ground running in the center city and west Greenville redevelopment areas. The grants have ranged from $15,000 to $30,000 and have gone to as many as four businesses per grant cycle.
Businesses can use the funds for working capital, equipment purchases, to improve property, or to expand services or products. The grants are a sound investment of tax dollars in the city’s vision for enhancing the downtown area as a draw for arts, entertainment and retail business.



Members of the commission and city staff said several applicants in this year’s competition had found it difficult to locate in the downtown area. That is good news in that downtown business space is becoming a scarce commodity. Officials noted that extending the competition to include areas along Dickinson Avenue could help.


One vacant building that has not opened for business is the Theater Uptown. The property — previously known as White’s Theater, State Theater and Park Theater — holds promise for becoming an entertainment venue but will require extensive renovation.



Only one of two development firms that were interested in the theater last year remains interested, Raleigh-based CommunitySmith. The Redevelopment Commission has a sizeable investment in the theater project, having purchased the building in 2008 for more than $280,000, using general obligation bond funds designated for downtown redevelopment.



The commission has about $180,000 left in its theater account, and the city is pursuing a grant to help pay for needed environmental cleanup related to the project. The city is negotiating how the property will be turned over to the development group, which plans to make the theater a mixed-use facility open to public use.
The city already has approved an ordinance allowing live performance theaters in the downtown area. The sooner that project comes to fruition, the better for businesses downtown, new and old.

Publix has confirmed its first store in Wilmington, Publix at Pine Valley ("Publix to open in Wilmington"). As Ogden Market Place has received the necessary zoning approval from the City of Wilmington, it remains to be see if it will be the location of Publix's second Wilmington store.

Publix has opened several new stores that are 45,600 or 49,098 square feet or larger. Some new stores have pharmacy drive through.

Thalhimer does have one retail center anchored by Publix, store 459, Saint James Shopping Center, 208 Saint James Avenue Suite C, Goose Creek, South Carolina 29445-2994.

Publix would succeed in Greenville and Pitt County.

Looks like Red Robin may actually happen... though I completely agree with the comments that Greenville should be able to do better.
