I noticed those on firetower a long time ago, months. I assumed they were for traffic counting or control of the intersection of Memorial.

Winn Dixie and I think later Piggly Wiggly. We're talking 80s into maybe 1995, at best.

There on both sides of Whitley, but only in the left turn lane on Firetower (both ways). That area is getting built up. I can see where a light will be needed in the near future to turn left on/off Whitley or to go straight across it.

The entry/exit was reminiscent of Winn-Dixie stores in the early 1990's. I think the location relocated to a replacement Marketplace format store in the mid-1990's that is now Big Lots #1858 (Greenville Square, 609 Greenville Boulevard Southeast, Greenville, North Carolina 27858-6738).

It is indeed a new traffic signal. The inductive loops senses traffic to warrant a light change to allow cross traffic to move or allow traffic to make left turns.

Have any posts or masts been installed to wire and hang traffic signals?

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.
I've inquired about the property across the river from the town common and as I understand it cannot be developed...

According to city documents, the property belongs to a company called OMG Properties LLC and was purchased back in April of this year. Other than that I have no idea. I love the building though, it has great potential.

I'd love to see the Ficklen Tobacco warehouse repurposed for something nice. Lots of potential uses for it. A city market, mixed use, events space, etc.


In Raleigh, they are trying to repurpose a large industrial warehouse in downtown raleigh called "The Dillon" with 200,000 sq ft of office/retail space, apartments, and a parking deck.





I wouldn't mind seeing something similar for the Ficklen warehouse, with a 4-6 story structure on top of the existing building.
