I have not seen this mentioned here. I just got a promotional email saying Jefferson's is moving to 9th street in "Dickinson Avenue Arts District" and Coastal Fog is taking over the rest of their current space.

^ that is a good business for the Dickinson Ave. area & once that area gets up & going, will be good for Jeffersons too.

Wow. That's big news, IMO.

This is what it looks like now.



That will be a big improvement, and maybe the start of officially forming the art district!

They've been doing renovations on that building (formerly Greenville Produce wholesaler) for months. They've already built a deck out back and have removed all the old glass, while keeping the iron frames. Lots of work has been done internally as well.

Wow. That's really fantastic news!! Great choice for that building, and it'll draw residents to the area as Jefferson's is a staple of Greenville's older crowd

Clearing for these two projects should further the momentum in the Uptown area....will be interesting to see if more clearing will occur on ECU's Millenial Campus site.
The houses on Clark St have now come down...the buildings on Pitt St remain for now....and lots of construction is ongoing on the Greco Restaurant Equip building, which is across the street from the Go Science building.

Default Re: Jefferson's

I must admit, though, while I'm strolling around downtown I'm gonna miss the music playing 24/7 at the corner of 4th & Evans.

It's great that there are a number of projects in the works for the Dickinson Avenue Arts District, but I've heard nothing from the city about the street and infrastructure realignment that was a major recommendation in the Dickinson Avenue Corridor study released in November of 2014. That recommendation seemed like a key proposal of the study. Will it be done? If so, when? If not, why does the city spend lots of money on studies like these and then just ignore them? If, in fact, there is work going on to realign the streets and infrastructure, why not keep the public informed of the progress being made?

GoingLocal,

I agree. I was in Greenville a couple of weeks ago, and I did ride through the Dickinson area and a couple of side streets. Tons of crumbling roads and pot holes. I'm not sure if the city is waiting on the state for the 10th street connector to "do it all at one time". (I know Dickinson is technically a state road) I'm sure they are planning this all out, but I'd love to get an update every few months about it.

With regard to Dickenson's condition there is a plan to resurface and upgrade the streetscape. I do believe it will require state funding or at least that was the original intention. That funding has not come through so they are pursuing other avenues while continuing to beseech the folks in Raleigh for assistance. I think that will really be the trans-formative project for Dickinson.

This is from 2012 but I had not seen it prior, thank you Google: http://www.ctcbrownfields.com/greenv...bacco_Plan.pdf
