That REALLY looks good, love the "sunken" pool design but still open air.

Looks a whole lot better than a fenced in surface parking lot. Hard to believe there was anyone who even challenged this. Lots of Greenville folks still need to get on board with building Greenville into a Top 10 City in NC.

Hopefully once they're done using the lot across the street (next to bankruptcy court) to house construction equipment, that will open up for another similar development. It's time for some commercial (office) development downtown.

Things are coming together nicely down there. Next year at this time, this Sidewalk development will be done and full. The GTAC will be completed and operational, and other announced restaurants (Ford + Shep, Jack Brown's Burger Bar, Smash Waffles, Luna Pizza) and Whirligig Stage will have opened. We will also be a lot closer to seeing what the Imperial Site will become. The Dickinson Ave streetscape project should be underway as well. Really exciting times.

The GTAC is going to cause problems for the good development on Dickinson. Bank on it.

Maybe. I'm hoping with a permanent police presence at the site, issues with the homeless, harassment, muggings, etc will be minimized.

And the GTAC isn't in the most ideal spot for traffic flow. but hopefully, the enter/exit points will be configured to ease congestion.

That's the problem. They won't stay in the GTAC, they'll wander to Dickinson and harass the clientele. It's not popular or politically correct to point this out publicly, but stakeholders downtown have been saying it to each other the whole time.

Fair point, Garnet.

I"m hoping the police presence will be extended to this redeveloped area as well. The city knows how important this area is/will be to the city and should be stressing that to the police department. They will have to make this area very very very very safe & secure going forward to keep people engaged and willing to visit.

The GPD center city unit does a good job. I don't doubt they'll step up there too, it's just a shame that they'll probably need to.

Walgreens to shutter 600 stores as part of Rite Aid deal | WJLA

I'm guessing two, possibly three, Rite Aid stores in Greenville will close: the one across from Hastings Ford and the Bells Fork store. Both are very near a Walgreens. One of locations near the hospital may close as well. Just speculation on my part, no official announcement on which stores are closing.
