Three words that always go together:

Steal
BMW
Kinston

How does Kinston support a BMW dealership anyway?

Well they have been there for over 20 years. Wasn't Du Pont still popping then? Maybe a few other industries kept it up.

A property owned by the State was torn down on 10th St and Evans/Forbes. Maybe a first step in the building of the Business/Education building? The State owns all the properties on that block, minus two. But they [the State] still needs to purchase six parcels on the 10th/Cotanche/Forbes/9th block.

Yeah, I saw that today. That whole area still needs a whole lot of work. I was in Garris-Evans lumber yesterday and looked at the old pictures they have on the wall back at the Contractors Desk. One was of their current building back before Greenville really started growing up. There were cornfields right up to the Garris-Evans property and hardly any houses on the street.

The next streetscape project (think west 5th st and Reade/Cotanche) will occur on Evans from Reade Circle to 10th St.

PLUS the 10th St extension will end there, with its related streetscape. PLUS the intermodal center is going in between 9th and 8th, so there will be landscaping/etc will occur.

PLUS there is talk to put some kind of academics between Cotanche/Evans and 10th St (like a business/education building plus parking deck).

And at one time the current apartment buildings near Evans/Reade/Cotanche I thought were gonna get razed and new apartments were going in. But I haven't heard anything about that recently.

So it won't be tomorrow, but it is in the pipeline to upgrade the Evans corridor

I've mentioned before about the new Children's Hospital and Pediatric Emergency Department future construction. So I have an update on the Pediatric ED. It should be open within a year (crosses fingers). To recap, it will be beside the current ED, in the former Heart Center area. It will have 16 beds, of which two will be trauma beds. They will expand the child-life staff. Also, ECU has to send medical students/residents to WakeMed to their Childrens Hospital currently to fill this academic need. So no need to do that anymore.

Any new development lately?


I've noticed a building or two across the street from Starbucks, Subway, & etc (10th st) has been demolished, anyone know what they're planning to build there?
Also Cheddar's looks like it will be open VERY soon.
The Kirkland's building has been gutted out (remind me of what's supposed to be going there again, please).
And I believe that's all I've seen so far.
