Thanks for the updates man!

Went to the Parade of Homes today and saw some nice houses. Looks like the real estate market around here is slowing picking back up.

The property is owned by a company called Gateway West LLC. They own no other property in Pitt County. I think it's safe to assume that this LLC was formed for the sole purpose of developing that particular piece of property.

I like the development of the mid-rise building in the medical district. Kind of solidifies that that area is pretty much like a mini-city in and of itself. I think in the area at the intersection of Arlington and Firetower next to the Carmike would be a good area for a midrise office building as well.

I think it would be an excellant place for a Pep Boys or Popeyes. I wrote to the Pep Boys real estate representative about coming to Greenville but I never heard back from them.

What's that you say? A private damn Yankee citizen lobbying big corporations to move to Greenville?

There is a startup telecom compnay that will be coming to Greenville if they can get it off the ground. I know the owner personally and she has assured me they will come here. She's done all of her homework and said this area is ripe for businesses like hers.

Does anybody know why Greenville seems complacent with the current mall setup. I mean the Greenville Mall is ok and all but it's small, too small for the amount of shopping that gets done in the city it's in. Why won't somebody come in and build a one big dang mall??

The existing mall doesn't do that well...I can't see a large, traditional indoor mall anytime soon. The trend is towards outdoor malls anyway. Look how slow 11 Galleria is going. I had heard about Macy's coming in...don't know what happened to that.

^didn't hear about Macy's. I would guess that major retail expansions are on hold for right now. I think the existing mall does OK but the trend is towards outdoor malls. i wonder if there are any indoor malls under construction or planned anywhere in the US right now.

Macy's is not coming , I emailed them a few months ago...they told me "H**l no" sike..lol But they did say they haven't researched the Greenville market, and the economy is not right, right now so don't expect them to expand in a while...(I think they are opening some new stores though). BTW thank you everyone posting now, I was the only one posting for a while...(besides my buddy ecufootball). They still build traditional malls but very rarley, I like them better than open air centers sometimes because open air centers look to suburban (almost all of them look suburban)...I would like developers to expand Greenville Mall upwards in all the anchor stores (to two levels), build a autrium in the food court by making it three levels high but two first levels are retail and the restaurants while the 3rd level is nothing but glass, or maybe some class A office. Then build the outparcels up in front of Belks, shut down one of those belk stores because it doesn't make any since to me. Build a parking garage where the front entrance is (where Pier Import's, and etc is), and change all the facades of the stores on the most upscale wing (we don't have a upscale wing but where ever the most upscale stores are) by making it look like a town setting similar to Streets of Southpoint in Durham...this could be done in 2011, 2012, or 2013, so the development will be secure to go through...
I'm guessing the cost would be less than $100 million...

Board supports rezoning, grants - News | Reflector.com (http://www.reflector.com/news/board-supports-rezoning-grants-586039.html - broken link)
Pitt County Planning Director James Rhodes informed the board of a rezoning request for property along N.C. 11 North between Greenville and Bethel. County commissioners voted in favor of rezoning the land — 2.18 acres — to general commercial from rural agricultural.
“The general commercial district is intended to accommodate a range of retail, service, office, limited wholesale and moderate density multifamily residential uses,” the agenda states.

It's all about the demographics...if /when Greenville hits 100,000, many more retailers will look into the area. I'm still surprised Macy's hasn't come to the area...I sure see plenty of their commercials on TV.
