Unincorporated Area

Unincorporated Area (2/14)



  1. Just saw this on News 14 Carolina. The Creative Corridors project is continuing to gather local input for the proposed improvements to Business 40 through downtown. They'll be having a meeting to discuss these improvements this Thursday, one meeting at one the other at six, at the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts. The video also gives a sneak peek at some of the improvements they're looking into for the corridor!!! Creative Corridors Project
  2. Opening day for Ziggy's is set: http://www2.journalnow.com/news/2011/jun/22/wsmet01-ziggys-rebirth-near-ar-1142252/
  3. I took a few photos about a month ago during rock the block. Nothing special really, just thought I'd add them:
  4. Some more info on the renovation of the Flatiron-ish building (or whatever it's called) over on Fourth Street. Apparently the building is home to a new clothing boutique! It's great to see that one of the more distinctive buildings in the Burke Street area is now occupied! http://downtownwinstonsalem.blogspot.com/2010/01/858-w-fourth-street-exciting-new-tenant.html
  5. The layoffs are regrettable but hopefully the park can whether this period and continue with its expansion. The factory district there is something of an underutilized redevelopment asset, given all the development interest focused around there. Here's hoping we get some goo news though in October!!
  6. Thanks for the info there Spartan that certainly does help explain some of the differences.
  7. That's true but the Bentley dealership is a small one, 5 or 6 cars in the showroom and maybe a few other ones outisde, but they DO have one. I really am suprised Lamborghini thinks there is enough business here for a stand alone dealership I also would have though the Foreign cars dealership would have at least a few Lamborghinis in stock on account of having a few Ferraris there, either way I just may have to plan a visit over there when they open!
  8. Even a modest change in South Carolina's municipal annexation laws would give South Carolina cities some much needed leverage in the planning process. Better oversight, more coordinated city/county planning efforts, needless duplication of city and county services, and better quality control on new development are just a few of the results that could arise from SC cities having more power to annex. There are plenty areas outside of Greenville that are undeniably urban and by anyone's guess would be considered a part of the city of Greenville yet aren't due to restrictive annexation practices the proposed legislation that would clamp down on city "doughnut holes" would at least be a modest start. I have noticed that Columbia, and Charleston particularly, have been more aggressive in capturing some of the surrounding growth, any particular reason behind this? I think there is more hostility to the idea of municipal annexation in the upstate but one would think that Greenville or Spartanburg would have at least made some modest annexations that would have tacked another 5,000 or 6,000 people to those census numbers. Any theories?
  9. Between this dealership and the Foreign Cars dealership a short drive up over near Guilford College, perhaps we should designate the Wendover Ave. area as the premier corridor for car-gawking in the Triad!
  10. Hello there, I've recently come into the Augusta area, while I usually lurk the Triad threads I figured that since I am in the area I would contribute a couple of photos I took from around downtown Augusta. While i'm only here for a brief time I figured that I while i'm here i'd share a few photos of the Augusta area that I have taken, hoepfully I can stock up the photo thread with some nice city photos. Either way here's a little of downtown Augusta! Finally here's a poor photo from today's July 4th Festivities Hopefully I can get some more later on!
  11. Here's some details from the Winston-Salem journal about the Baltimore developer who wants to bring an ambitous new development to PTRP which would renovate upwards of 1.1 million square feet of warehouses into office space for residential and retail units and some new lab space. It seems the company has mapped out how they're going doing to this pretty carefully, here's hopefully we can see this development come to fruition soon! http://www2.journalnow.com/content/2008/ju...ghts-develop-6/
  12. Its nice to know this building is getting a much needed makeover, I know some have questioned the look of the renovation but belive be its a real improvement. The old facade always looked like it was in a constant of construction and renovation with an odd assortment of paneling or lack thereof. Its also nice that John Kuhn is contirbuting to the arts district by making his studio more prominent and showing off some of his wares. His art is definetely worth seeing BTW and he has made something of a name for himself regionally as a great glass artist with his works being spotlighted on a feature on the state's PBS station although his art is insanly pricey. Let's hope that some more rehab work makes it way down Liberty Street!!
  13. I'm hesitant to start a whole new thread around one development alluded to in a Winston-Salem Journal paper editorial but apparently one of the editors at the journal alludes to a potentially significant development under proposal by a Baltimore developer that could really transform the industrial district over there, it also alludes to using and rehabbbing the old Power plant!!! http://www.journalnow.com/servlet/Satellit...path=%2Fopinion
  14. I'm suprised this hasn't been mentioned more often here but does anyone know what progress is going on over at what used to be Tobacco Square? Renovation has been well underway for quite a while and the project may be completed soon, if not now, but I haven't been in the area to see for myself, either way some new apartments should be coming up on the market pretty soon.
  15. Not really downtown, per say, but its close enough to warrant a posting here. This has gone under the radar but Winston-Salem State has been building some new dorm hosuing for around 300 students, more information in the follwing journal article: http://www.journalnow.com/servlet/Satellit...s=1037645509099
