    Downtown Greensboro
  1. While riding through downtown Greensboro yesterday, I noticed Ellenburg and Shaffer are moving. This is the stain glass place across from Natty's. It appears they are relocating to other states. Also RIM is closed and it looked as if the Elm Street Center is for sale.
  2. City Council votes unanimously to move forward with the ballpark.
  3. If you never ate at this restaurant, then you missed the best restaurant in all of downtown Greensboro. The dinner menu was killer and they had the best pork chops and spaghetti and meat balls i have ever eaten. In fact there is no other restaurants in all of downtown that has food this good at these price points. It is truly a sad day. I know alot of people will miss this restaurant.
  4. Basically this is small town thinking for you at it's best. And your right peopel are too damn lazy to park in a deck and walk. Until people's attitute changes about parking decks it will be hard to compete with the Friendly Center and strip Malls. People around here are spoiled. I do hope they get this worked out though.
  5. So far downtown has lost 2 art gallerys, minj grill, and according to 99 blocks a popular night spot will be closing soon. I wonder if it is ChurchHills. I heard they were not doing good. The Metro is also closing soon. Hopefully downtown want turn into another ghost town before this recession is over. But so far it don't look good.
  6. I lived in Southside on MLK for 3 years and sold just before the real estate crisis. I now live behind Natty Greene's in an apartment. They have said that this building has been 50% sold for about 2 years. I guess they haven't had any new sales in 2 years. I have checked on this building several times and I have recently found out the banks are not loaning money on condo buidings unless they are 51% sold out. With that said, lets hope they are 51% sold out or they might have a problem getting a mortgage. Having lived downtown for 5 years now, I have made many friends and know a lo
  7. I can afford it, but there is not enough in downtown Greensboro that would prompt me to consider paying those kind of dues. Now if downtown offered everything I needed including retail, a grocery store, a hardware store, pharmacy etc, I might consider it, but not for a bunch of bars and clubs. When downtown becomes more balanced with high paying Jobs being #1, then investing in this kind of building might be good, but I would not consider investing in this kind of property after living in downtown for the past 5 years, I don't see it moving very fast, infact it has dropped off tremendouly in
  8. I am not sure who is going to be able to afford these condos. Did you know that the Home Owners Association fees are .30 cents a square foot a month. So if you have a 1000 sf condo you will be paying $300.00 a month in HOA dues. I was told that this covered parking, water, insurance and window washing. If you have a 1200 sf unit you will be paying $360.00 a month. I don't that many people who can afford these kind of prices in Greensboro. I think these remaining units will be on the market a long time.
  9. Looks like a Comfort Inn Hotel to me. I am not impressed but I guess downtown Greensboro will take whatever they can get.
  10. Thats old new The owners of Sweat Potatoes closed The Cotton Mill Restaurant, but has opened again under new management with the same name. The Cotton Mill Restaurant located at the Brookstown Mill has reopened under new management. Steven Butcher, formerly the general manager at the Twin City Chop House, took over the restaurant in late September. The Cotton Mill was previously opened and operated by Stephanie Tyson and Vivian Joyner of Sweet Potatoes in the fall of 2007. They closed the in July 2008.

  12. Winston-Salem has moved closer toward reaching an ambitious national economic goal. the Winston-Salem metropolitan statistical area was ranked for the first time among the top 100 best-performing cities in the nation. It ranks 200 metropolitan areas based on economic growth, including both long-term and short-term measurements of employment and salary growth and indicators of high-tech output. The Winston-Salem MSA was ranked 99th overall, up from 128th in 2007. The area improved in seven of nine categories from the 2007 report. By comparison, the Greensboro-High Point MSA -- which consists of
  13. I was in dowtown Durham today and decided I would take a tour of the American Tobacco Historic District to see exactly what kind of work Struever Brothers does. I must say that I was impressed with that they have done in downtown Durham. I cannot wait for them to get started in downtown Winston. If they do anything in the PTRP like they have done in Durham, then it will definitely bring the cool factor to downtown. Check it out: http://www.sber.com/home.php
  14. I saw this on the Fox8 news Friday night that downtown could support 300,000 sf of retail shopping. That Ed Wolverton is a real go getter. I loved it when he said the days of downtown being able to recruit a Nordstroms or a Macy are long gone. Really shows what kind of big thinkers we have in charge. We need someone in charge like Citiboi. I would like to see a Target, Harris Teeter, Lowes or Home Depot and definitely some hip clothing shops like maybe a Gap or Banana Republic. The Kress building where the former Rum Runners was located is definitely upsale enough for a nice department
  15. I think my comments on an earlier post were very positive on downtown Greensboro: "Lets be happy with what downtown is developing into and focus on continuing to promote it as the Triad"s main entertainment district, instead of a bunch of boring high rise office buildings that are lifeless after 5 and on weekends". I am sorry you are so touchy on this subject. I am nor for or against any Triad city. I see good and bad in all 3 Triad cities. I have just presented the facts the way I see them. If it makes you feel better, there may be a high rise built in downtown Greensboro at some point.
