Good problem to have. With the hotel deal being worked out and the Student Center starting...that's 5 big projects coming to the downtown area.

My question is what is up with the Transit Center?...that should make it 6 big projects, but we haven't heard a real timeframe considering its a public project.

And the old BOA building on 1st St...that would be 7 big projects.

To answer the question about the Boundary commercial...think about it, with all of the additional housing downtown, it will help bring in the businesses...it wasn't just the Boundary housing that was needed, it is more than that. It is obvious now that that commercial was built as speculative...for the future needs of downtown Greenville, maybe not as much needed right now.

BTW, the clearing is pretty much done and lots of stuff is on site for the 10th St connector project. You can really see why it will take awhile based on the scale of that project and all of the intersections affected.

Not a physical development, but it affects Greenville. Ruffin McNeill was just fired.

Greenville to receive $100 million for road improvements:

Greenville to receive $100 million for road improvements | WNCT

Quote:
GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT) – Greenville Mayor Allen Thomas announced Thursday Greenville would receive $100 million from the state DOT for road improvements. The funds were discussed during Thursday’s city council meeting.
Construction is set to begin in 2017, and continue for the next five or six years.
A large portion of the money will go towards widening main roads like Firetower Rd., Evans St., and 14th St.
The rest of the money will be used to make repairs and enhance roads in the city.
This money is in addition to the $15 million voters approved as a bond referendum during the November election.
Not sure what they mean by widening Firetower Rd. ? Do they really mean expanding it out past PCC? Also, not sure where or the need to widen 14th...unless that just involves resurfacing the road with a wider shoulder.

Anyone know anything?

Firetower continues East past Charles Blvd. all of the way to Portertown Rd. That is the section that they will be widening.

East 14th St is a mess. It terminates into Firetower at it's southern end. It is a very busy road.

There is a Firetower extension on the board to connect to the Southwest Bypass...I would believe that is the project referenced. Have not seen anything about widening Firetower east of Bells Fork.

Widening of 14th & Evans has been a long time coming.

Wonder what the Firetower part truly means. The article mentions "widening" Firetower. Just semantics, but seems unlikely that reference is to an extension to the SW Bypass. Firetower East of Bells Fork is in desperate need of widening. That end is a more immediate need IMO, but who knows what they will do. Greenville really needs a higher volume corridor connecting 33/10th Street to Bells Fork.

The Firetower work is described in this link. It is project numbers 2 and 8. http://www.greenvillenc.gov/home/showdocument?id=798

Property acquisition for NC TIP U-5006 (Firetower Road extension) is scheduled to begin in 2020 and the project is not currently funded.
