Haven't heard anything, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to split up the former Lowe's into 2 or 3 units. Home Goods would make a nice anchor in that shopping center.

I was really hoping the rumors of Guitar Center going in the old Lowes Foods were true.

$10,000 is nothing. I spent almost that much just removing trees at my previous house.

I wish I had more I could tell you, but unfortunately that is it. It was when the building was first vacated and someone on this forum said that guitar center was interested in the property.

City launches a new website:

City launches economic development website - Daily Reflector

Quote:
The city's Office of Economic Development has launched a website — Growgreenvillenc.com — to help Greenville continue the economic growth it has experienced in the past few years, the city’s economic development manager said.
"This website will appeal to site selectors and investors," Greenville Economic Development Manager Roger Johnson said. “This is part of the city’s new economic development strategy.”

Greenville’s 2020 Strategic Economic Development Plan, developed to promote investment in the city, includes strategies to recruit new businesses to the area, promote entrepreneurship and attract new private capital investment.
The new site is separate from the city’s website, greenvillenc.gov, and includes a design that will employ search engine optimization, Johnson said.

“Before, the Office of Economic Development site was a subpage on the city’s website,” Johnson said about the website that launched last week. “This helps to get us out there, and the search engine optimization helps keep this site near the top of the page when someone does a search for economic development in Greenville.”

Johnson said the website is designed to be responsive, meaning it is formatted to be viewed on a mobile device as well as on a computer monitor.

“It’s an adaptive site, which makes it more user-friendly,” Johnson said. “Data shows that about 47 percent of the time, people use a mobile device to look at a website or email, and this site is designed to allow that.”

The website provides information about the city's demographics, quality of life, major employers, grants and incentives for businesses, and links to local economic development partners, Greenville’s economic development liaison, Christian Lockamy, said.

“When businesses or site selectors wanted this type of information they would have to contact our office,” Lockamy said. “Now that information is much easier to for them to access. It also provides links to our economic development partners and helps get them more exposure as well.”

Lockamy said the website also contains a searchable database that promotes buildings and sites that are available for prospective businesses that are looking for locations with specific square footage or zoning requirements. This will help the city to attract four target industries to the area — high value office/headquarters, artisanal manufacturing, healthcare information technology and digital media/software/simulation.

“These are the industries we are looking for in Greenville,” Lockamy said. “This helps us by letting these businesses or industries know that Greenville is the right match for their companies.”

The site also provides a link to the Office of Economic Development's new virtual building, a 30,000-square-foot design that could be expanded up to 90,000 square feet and be ready for a business within 10 months. The city has two prospective sites for the virtual building.

“These sites already are properly zoned for the types of businesses we are trying to attract,” Lockamy said. “Once we have a site, it will be shovel-ready, and a business can have its building constructed in less than a year. This is a program we are really excited about.”

Johnson said that the city recently sent out more than 900 emails to high-level corporate executives and corporate site selectors to let them know about the new website.

“We are getting the word out about our new site and we have got a lot of positive feedback about it so far,” Johnson said. “And we will continue to add new features to the website and will make sure it stays at the top of a Google search when people are looking for information about what is going on in our city.”

Drove by there tonight. There is construction vehicles out there now, and they appear to be in use on that site.

There is also some kind of development happening on the southwest corner of Frog Level and Davenport. Only about 60% of the open land on this corner is fenced off, seems rather small for a housing development. Is commercial/retail permitted in that area? The only non-housing out there are schools and churches. I doubt it's for one house. A church maybe?
