IMO, downtown stops at the RR tracks, which is why 1st St does not have continuity.

If SECU relocated, that site could be utilized for waterfront development. Keep in mind one reason there is not much waterfront development in Greenville is because the direct waterfront floods. Most of the plans over the years have indicated the area directly bordering the water is better served as open space. Buildings can be built right on First St though, which is the thought on developing some of the Town Common.

Boundary looks like it's getting close. Maybe a few more weeks to a month they should be finally complete.

The problem is Town Commons isn't inviting. I don't live in Greenville anymore, but every few months when I come down I do visit downtown Greenville and that includes a stroll through Town Commons. I'm not walking through when an intent on comparing the Commons to many other parks I've been to across the U.S., but I do recognize what makes a park great. There is a huge lack of quality lighting, terrible landscaping, shabby paths, the water doesn't seem like it's inclusive with the park if that makes any sense. Everything is just wrong and it's an embarrassment to the city that needs to be completely rethought in order to truly anchor that part of downtown outside of Fourth of July.

The area across the river from Town Commons, is that land firm enough for a park? It would be AMAZING if they could make a second part to the commons in that area.

They have started tearing down the old shopping center on Memorial where Hobby Lobby was supposedly going to be built. So far they have taken down the small building along Mall Road that housed the hair stylist, NC license plate office, and once upon a time, Retool. Does anyone know if that project is still on or is the land owner just clearing the lot?

Are there any plans in the works for this building near the corner of Pitt & Dickinson? Greco has moved out of this location and over to the building next to it on Pitt.

The place they're tearing down would not be a good location for Publix.

I'd like to see one down closer to PCC in Winterville. Food Lion desperately needs competition in Winterville.

Did Carolina East Centre have a supermarket tenant?

I will agree with GarnetAndBlack. I think Publix locates stores in new trade areas created by growth or established trade areas that are experiencing infill growth.

Inductive loops (pictured below) have been installed at the intersection of Firetower & Whitley Drive (adjacent to Papa Johns) in Winterville. I take it that a new traffic light will be put in place at this intersection?
