No site plans have been posted that I have seen. Judging by the concept image though, it looks fairly large.

The radio tower at Town Common is coming down, but not without a small controversy. The CEO of WOOW comes off as a little suspect in his statements...

So many questions that aren't that hard to answer if they just try.

WOOW was issued a construction permit to locate the transmitter on Shore Drive in 1958. The station moved there from Washington.

https://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/pr...etter_id=66018

But that still doesn't address who actually owns the tower.

1) Sounds like nobody has maintained the tower so the fact that it needs to come down shouldn't be a surprise to either party. I was told by a Public Radio East employee many years ago that the inside of that transmitter building was a horror. PRE just leases space there (who are they paying...?)

2) There is no record of this tower with the FCC. Towers have to be registered if they are above a certain height, or if they are below that height but in the flight path of a nearby airport. If the tower is not of that height or not in the flight path it does not need to have a lit beacon on top. I think WOOW is far enough east not to be in PGV's glide path. So either whoever was paying to light this thing all along was pissing away money, or they haven't registered a tower that was supposed to be. I'm inclined to believe it's the former.

There are a few people still around Greenville who worked at WOOW back in the top-40 "Big WOW" days who could answer institutional questions about the history of the station.

New grocery store could be coming to West 5th Street.

Grocery could be coming to West Fifth Street - Daily Reflector

Quote:
Greenville’s Redevelopment Commission on Tuesday took the first step in a west Greenville project that could bring an oasis to an area classified as a food desert.

The commission unanimously approved a request to convey ownership of an empty lot at 907 W. Fifth St. to the City of Greenville so the city can combine it with three adjacent lots west of Vance Street.
The city has been working Koinonia Christian Center Community Development Corporation to place a small full-service grocery, a laundry and office space on the four lots, city planner Tom Wisemiller told the Redevelopment Commission on Tuesday.

“The city’s Community Development staff has been working with the CDC to acquire this property and noticed that one of the parcels is owned by the Redevelopment Commission,” Wisemiller said. “The city wants to combine this into one parcel so we can take it before the City Council.”
Wisemiller said the project would satisfy several goals of the city’s West Greenville Redevelopment Plan, including providing jobs and access to food in the area.

“This area of Greenville was designated by the USDA as a ‘food desert,’” Wisemiller said. “This project would help residents with access to health food and will help in revitalization efforts in the area.”
Wisemiller said the CDC is committed to moving this project forward on an expedited basis and has indicated that it will not seek any cash incentives from the city.

Veronica Grice, the CDC’s business director, said the Koinonia Christian Center, now located at 1405 Southwest Greenville Blvd., “grew up” in west Greenville and was looking for a project in the area.

“The church wanted to remain a major part of the community,” Grice said. “This property gives us a chance to come back to west Greenville and have a positive impact.”
Grice said the location of the property was “perfect.”

“Its location of Fifth Street is perfect for this type of development,” she said. “It will help provide jobs and is in walking distance to so many residents.

“It’s a win-win for everyone,” Grice said.

Redevelopment Commission member Pat Dunn agreed.
“This will be a welcome addition to Fifth Street,” Dunn said. “I can’t think of a better use for this property.”
The commission acquired the property in 2012 as part of ongoing efforts to rehabilitate the area. It ceded the property to the city for $1.

Now that the property has been conveyed to the city, staff can negotiate a development agreement for the entire property and bring it before the City Council for approval.

Greenville’s Community Development Director Ben Griffiths said staff hopes to have an agreement ready to go before the City Council by June.

“We are really excited about the possibility of this project in west Greenville,” Griffiths said. “This really fits into Greenville’s redevelopment plans.”

The City Council could decide to transfer the property to the CDC on the condition that it satisfies the conditions of the development agreement.
This is great news. I hope this will lead to a boost in investment in West Greenville.

I'm confused. Is this saying the church will be running a grocery store or they will be looking for a grocer to come to the lot?

I stopped by the new Aldi today, it's quite nice. A great addition to east Greenville, they should also pull folks from Washington.
