a carousel will be coming to downtown Greensboro at the corner of Church St and Friendly Ave. It will open in 2016 along with other downtown projects such as the performing arts center with adjoining park and two mid/high-rise hotels.

I bet that's why the 'Rumba Latina' building was condemned.

i think originally it was suppose to be a double decker. looks like a lot of people and organizations in Greensboro have been very generous over the past year with all the private donations for the performing arts center, a new downtown park and now this.

I don't know how carousels do in other cities, but from my observation a carousel in a public setting in the final nail in the coffin. Carolina Circle & Oak Hollow Malls had carousels and Hanes currently has one, though Hanes appears to have most spaces occupied.
