I would be driving at around 70-74 in the 65 zone, passing some cars...then when it switched to 60, I'd slow down to 65-69, and many of the cars I had recently passed would pass me, since they kept the same speed, even though the limit was lower. Anyway, I guess that won't be an issue any longer.

Pretty cool lengthy article in the New York Times talking about downtown High Point's revitalization efforts.

This was a pretty awesome nod to the Bull city and Gate city, on their amazing efforts to create vibrant and noteworthy downtowns.

"Other cities in the state, including Durham and nearby Greensboro, have revitalized their downtowns, but High Point’s has languished."
But where is the Camel city...come on NY times.

While i do agree with the NY times, we have to remember that Durham and Greensboros sucess was not simply overnight, it took both cities decades to get where they are now. And both had ballparks that became a major catylist for millions of dollars in development and revitilation that eventualy spread throughout the CBD.

Highpoint is starting to crawl, but it will be running soon enough.

New burger place, called Lone Star Burgers, coming to 130 W Lexington Ave, where Emerywood Fine Foods used to be.
Forgot to mention it previously, but Tipsy'z will also be expanding. They bought the former Fixins restaurant on N Main and will be opening a taco joint. I tend to forget about Tipsy'z but they do have amazing burgers. Haven't tried their tacos yet.

The old Wendy's on N Main (next to University Kitchen) is being turned into a Jimmy John's.
Sort of interesting, as I don't think I've ever seen a Jimmy Johns that large (most that I've seen have been in small strip malls or downtown areas) and I'm wondering if they're actually going to utilize the drive-thru.

Looks like this project may not happen:

"Last year, Adnan Mjalli announced a $500 million investment to create his 80-plus acre Oasis Village for Longevity and Healthy Aging in High Point, but after the pandemic struck, plans were put on hold. Since then, other states have reached out to Mjalli about relocating, offering land, cash and other incentives to do so. No final decisions have been made for the research park, which could create hundreds of high-paying jobs in the region."

Yeah, downtown High Point is about 20 years behind Greensboro in this regard. but it's also unique in having so many buildings that are actively used as furniture showrooms in prime street front properties, which is an economic driver but doesn't really contribute to an experience of the casual person downtown who isn't there on business during the biannual furniture market that goes on about a week each time.

Outside of downtown, I wonder what will happen with the old Oak Hollow Mall that High Point University purchased, with the one exception of the Dillard's clearance store which is still in operation. The university there has been on a massive property acquisition and construction campaign for several years now.
