Couldn't ECU have done something like purchase the three homes just off the eastern edge of campus and built a new chancellor's home? Seems like cost would be more than the SHF location, but less than the 5th St. projections; somewhere in the $2M to $2.5 range. There's also ample parking in existence. At least one of the existing homes is a rental. Seems like having the chancellor live on or near campus should be part of the job.

I never see the man on campus as is anyway, not sure it matters where his house is. I use to see Ballard all the time, really miss him not being in a chancellor's role any longer.

I don't know where the chancellors of UNC or NC State live, but I do know that App's chancellor lives on campus, but in a way that she still has privacy. They built a place for her a few years ago.

Privacy be damned, USC's president lives here:

Wish ECU would learn that.

Not necessarily Greenville news, but affects the East...

Kinston Woodman Center and Lyons Waterpark are in deep financial trouble ...

I remember wondering when this thing was announced and opened, how would Kinston support such a thing... Whelp.

Jeez. And people are upset at Greenville for trying to run a golf course!! No way I'd touch this with a 10 ft. pole if I was the city of Kinston. Maybe the Lions Waterpark folks should approach the water park at the outer banks or sell to the highest bidder.

Until now I assumed this thing was some sort of nonprofit charity venture and that Lions Water Adventure had something to do with the Lions club. Nope just a gym with a pool and cartoon lions.

I canít believe they actually put this in Kinston? Really?

NC State just dropped $3.5 million (private donations) and built their 8,500 sq. ft. chancellor's residence on the Centennial Campus. It is nestled on a point on Lake Raleigh, right beside the alumni center, and across the street from the on campus golf course. It is off the beaten path when it comes to students but is located at a great location to entertain donors and guests while also showing off the new Centennial Campus.

I understand if ECU wanted to relocate the chancellor from the 5th street house, but in my opinion, the chancellor does not belong in a residential neighborhood miles away from the campus. To me it just seems like an odd and out of place location to host guests of the university. ECU should have thought towards the future and possibly built on or near their new "millennial" campus they are looking to build off of 10th. What better way to attract science leaders, companies, and investors than to display that the chancellor of the university wants to be up front and center of the new initiatives. This location would also be centered between the medical and main campuses along with being right in the middle of the new developments off of Dickinson.

I was really hoping to just see that corner demolished & rebuilt, but this is nice. I wish the owner of the Stop Shop would invest a little money into the outside facade of the building. =


That looks pretty good.
