^ for what it's worth, the owner is the original owner of Blvd. Bagel. So the Bagels will be legit...Blvd. Bagel has gone downhill ever since it was sold & then sold again.

What exactly constitutes the Millenial Campus? I thought that's what they had planned out on Charles where they tore down the apartments. Across from the baseball field.

Council OKs zoning changes for Campus Edge



Daily Reflector, The (Greenville, NC) - February 11, 2016Browse Issues
A $54 million student housing development got the final OK from the Greenville City Council to move forward with construction after a unanimous vote to add a new zoning overlay to the property.

Taft-Ward Investments still will need a special use permit from the Board of Adjustment before beginning construction of the Campus Edge student housing project.

Greenville’s zoning ordinance does not allow dormitory developments within the downtown commercial fringe zoning district, so in order for Taft-Ward Investments to develop the Campus Edge student housing complex on 10th Street, across from the future East Carolina University Student Center, it needed the overlay applied and the addition of dormitories as an allowed use before it could begin construction.

Taft-Ward officials said they needed the overlay added because city zoning does not recommend downtown commercial south of 10th Street and the planned development is dense enough that it requires such a zoning. It needed the dormitory designation because of the nature of the development — several bedrooms which share a common area per apartment unit, similar to other student housing developments.

The overlay is an additional zoning parameter placed over an existing zoning. Campus Edge is the planned larger sister project to the Boundary @ West End on Evans Street. The Province Apartments previously used overlay zoning.

Campus Edge will be bounded by East 10th Street, Green Mill Run, East 14th Street and the CSX railroad. The entire designated area will be taken up by the Campus Edge development and will not affect the Krispy Kreme or the shopping center owned by George Naoum which fronts Charles Boulevard.

At a previous Greenville Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, Naoum and his son were concerned about the density of the property, parking issues and who could live at the development (dormitories are not legally limited to students). Naoum and his son said nearby property owners were concerned that the development would cause parking issues if not enough spaces were built for residents and their visitors. Naoum and his son said parking already is a struggle for nearby properties. No one spoke against the development at Thursday’s council meeting.

With the Campus Edge development, 0.75 parking spaces are required per resident. The Boundary was required to have 0.5 spaces per residents. Other cities analyzed by staff require an average of 0.72 parking spaces for similar developments. Durham requires 0.25 spaces per resident, Matthews requires 0.33, Charlotte requires 0.5, Greensboro requires 0.75 plus 1 space per dorm, Mount Airy requires 1 and Boone requires 1.5 parking spaces per resident. Chapel Hill allows no more than 0.5.

District 4 Councilman Rick Smiley asked if overflow parking is expected. Staff said the 0.75 space requirement per resident aims to accommodate all necessary parking for the development.

The council also approved amending its zoning ordinance to add a dormitory as an allowed land use in the downtown commercial fringe district with the addition of the Urban Core Overlay, and only allowed with a special-use permit and specific criteria.

This does not immediately open the area to other similar developments, staff said. Future developments must apply and be approved for a special use permit first. That process includes going before Planning and Zoning, the Greenville City Council and the Board of Adjustment.

Also at Thursday’s meeting the council approved: An ordinance request by Beacon Investments LLC to rezone about 1.4 acres along the northern right-of-way of Old Fire Tower Road and east of County Home Road from residential-agricultural to office-residential (high density multi-family);

An ordinance requested by Greenville Utilities Commission to rezone about 1 acre at the northwest corner of the intersection of West Fifth Street and South Pitt Street from downtown commercial fringe to downtown commercial;

A resolution approving up to $73.5 million Greenville Utilities Commission combined enterprise system revenue and refunding bonds series 2016, but not yet approving the issuance of those bonds;

An ordinance amending the penalty for parking beyond posted times in the downtown area and allowing all-day parking in the Fourth Street parking deck;

An amended contract with its auditor in which the auditor more than doubled its fees proposed fees for 2016 auditing services from $70,500 to $117,500, an increase of $47,000 annually (a 67 percent increase) due to the auditor working with the city’s new financial system implementation. District 5 Councilman P.J. Connelly voted against.

This 0.5 parking spaces per person thing is so incredibly stupid.

Also

Campus Edge will be bounded by East 10th Street, Green Mill Run, East 14th Street and the CSX railroad. The entire designated area will be taken up by the Campus Edge development and will not affect the Krispy Kreme or the shopping center owned by George Naoum which fronts Charles Boulevard.

The railroad is nowhere near there

If I remember correctly, at one point, they were looking to select one of several different sites to be the "Millenial Campus". (Over by the Health Sciences center, old Stratford Arms apts. warehouses off 10th street, etc. ) Somehow, someway, something switched to ALL the previous places they were looking at will now become the "Millenial Campus".

Here's some more info released last year.

ECU Millennial Campus


Quote:
In addition to the warehouse district property, ECU is asking the Board of Governors for millennial campus designation for three other parcels it owns. The other sites are:

The university’s uptown properties--19 acres that lie on both sides of Reade Street from Fifth Street to First Street and the river front park.

The Health Sciences Campus.

The Stratford Arms and Blount Fields properties across Greenville Boulevard from Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

I don't see why you need a whole bunch of parking for a complex within walking distance to Downtown, Campus and Harris Teeter...not everyone will have a car.

I'm struggling with those boundary parameters as well...is this taking out everything along 10th to the old Daryl's and then along Green Mill Run, surrounding the Province? Or jumping over Charles and going behind Harris Teeter through that neighborhood? Those would be the only ways to get to 14th and the RR tracks from 10th St.
