I'm assuming that deal fell through
That's what I was thinking too. That listing is only a month old, but the signs have been down for much longer than that.

I think the six Dunkin Donuts will be a long time coming. The article stated that they plan to build one in 2017. Whats up with the Walmart on Tenth St. They had a building permit listed as Walmart Real Estate Business in the Daily Reflector today for $495 thousand dollars for that address. Are they expanding or are they building more shops at the strip center? Sounds like more shops in the strip center.

Even with the new Fairfield on Moye and eventually the Hilton downtown, Greenville could still really use another (maybe even 2?) decent hotels.

A lot of people tend to think that those 3 areas that you mention are the bulk of Greenville. The east and southeast sides of Greenville are growing at a rapid pace too. Remember that Walmart built a new store on East 10th St in the middle of a corn field. That location wasn't chosen by accident. Although initially they did want a location about a half mile closer to Greenville, they still built where they did.

Greenville Utilities is building a large electric substation (judging from the size of the fenced in area) on Mills Rd just south of Greenville.

Additionally some sort of utility work, be it power, road widening, sewer or whatever, is getting ready to happen on south Charles Blvd where it turns into NC 43. All of the big trees that were on the east side of Charles/NC 43 have been and are being removed by the same contractor, for at least a mile down the road.

Greenville and the State are in the final planning stages of the huge east Firetower/Portertown expansion.

The point is that there is a lot going on on the other side of town too. It's not as glamorous as Uptown so you guys don't talk about it much but there are things happening all over Greenville.

BTW AirU just opened off of Corey Rd. Take the kids there. It's located next to H Boyd Lee Park. Air U Indoor Trampoline Park and Birthday Party Center in Greenville, NC

Richard,

Thanks for pointing out the stuff going on out in E/SE Greenville. I think we all try to cover all news in all parts of Greenville. I was just highlighting areas that are not currently served by a Dunkin Donuts. Those three main areas don't have any DD nearby . SE Greenville is served by the DD on Firetower and Eastern Greenville is technically served by the DD on 10th street near Hastings Ford.

GTAC Breaks ground today!!!

GTAC project set to get moving - Daily Reflector

Quote:
The construction of a transportation center in downtown Greenville is scheduled to begin today, the city’s public works director said.

The City of Greenville officially will break ground on the Greenville Transportation Activity Center at 3 p.m. today, Kevin Mulligan said. The transportation center will be located on Bonners Lane, between South Clark and South Pitt streets, and will provide a hub with access to multiple forms of transportation including Greenville Area Transit (GREAT), Pitt Area Transit (PATS) and East Carolina University Transit systems, taxi services, Greyhound buses, shuttles to the Pitt-Greenville Airport and bus service to the Amtrak station in Wilson.

Medical and hotel shuttles potentially could locate there as well, Mulligan said.

“This is such an important project for transportation in Greenville,” Mulligan said. “Theoretically, an ECU student could connect from well out of state to get to Greenville.”

Plans called for the facility to have a building in which transit customers can wait and will include a seating area, ticket counter and restrooms. The facility will have about 12 bus bays with shelters, and the Public Works Transit Division will have administrative offices in the facility.

The majority of funding for the project is coming from state and federal grants. The cost to the city is about $800,000.
The original estimated budget for the project was about $8.4 million. TCC Enterprises Inc. of Louisburg submitted a bid of $7,194,300, Mulligan said. The City Council unanimously approved the contract with TCC Enterprises.

GO Science actually had a little business last night. Cars were parked on the other side of the building as well.

Still have not seen a rendering of the Taft Ward project.

Another article says that Greenville will be getting 6 more Dunkin Donuts.

Dunkin

Hopefully one downtown with all of this commercial space being added.
Is anyone worried about an even bigger glut in the apartment market? Now that North Campus Crossing has pretty much failed.

I'm happy to see this revitalization of the urban core. There are many benefits of it. Especially the decrease in general traffic.
