  1. Then and now. The first photo shows Lindsay Street and the old Burlington Industries headquarters. Today center field at First National Bank Field is located there. After Burlington Industries moved into a new building, the building became the home of the Guilford County Department of Social Services. The building was demolished and that section of Lindsay Street was closed to make way for the ballpark. The old DSS Building entrance on Eugene Street . The score board stands where the main entrance once stood
  2. Nice. I drove by there today its even further along and it looks like they are getting ready to start on the 7th floor
  3. A fellow former contacted a representative and said this person told him construction will start very soon with a 2021 opening.
  4. Roy Carroll makes land swap for his Carroll South of the Ballpark project https://www.bizjournals.com/triad/news/2019/08/02/its-official-carroll-and-city-make-land-swap.html?iana=hpmvp_triad_news_headline Apparently there are also some unannounced projects near the ballpark because DGI president Zack Matheny says this in the article which hints additional office and residential projects "We are very excitedly this has transpired" "This allows for a lot of future growth, including Project Slugger, Carroll South of the ballpark, and a few projects we are currently working on that will bring more residential and employers to downtown Greensboro"
  5. Carvana opened an 8 story tower in Greensboro today. It's the 19th vending machine tower in the country and the third in North Carolina. Raleigh has a smaller one and Charlotte has one identical to Greensboro's. https://www.greensboro.com/news/local_news/a-vending-machine-for-cars-believe-it-one-just-opened/article_f1ae66bb-1691-5874-967e-fadbe3426e45.html
  6. Pretty cool. The New York Times highlighted downtown High Point's revitalization efforts with a lengthy article https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/02/business/furniture-was-a-savior-then-it-was-a-handicap.html

  8. Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts set to be complete by January but another few months for finishing touches and will open in March. The center will have some interesting features. - “Schiffman’s Ring of Light,” named for the owners of Schiffman’s Jewelers, will be suspended over the seating area. It will consist of 60 LED pieces, each measuring 3 feet by 12 feet. Among other functions, it will provide a timed countdown to the start of every performance. - The venue will feature the Meyer Sound Constellation electronic acoustic enhancement system. It combines electro-acoustic technology with the physical architecture to provide natural-sounding acoustics. - the two-story, 8,000-square-foot, porcelain-floored lobby called Phillips Hall, will feature a massive piece of art made by an internationally known artist. - The third floor will hold four pre-function spaces, including the Koury Ballroom and an outdoor terrace overlooking LeBauer Park. - One of two interior art gallery spaces runs along the building’s North Elm Street side. Floor-to-ceiling glass there will enable passers-by to look in. - There will be a large wrap-around outdoor marquee spanning one corner which will give it a NY Times Square feel. https://www.greensboro.com/news/local_news/this-building-will-be-a-dynamic-iconic-image-for-our/article_d14273f0-8b87-5c27-a1c9-cd48fedce1bd.html#2 Recent photos. The parking lot is paved. I'm not a fan of all the surface lot but I understand the premium parking is part of the payment structure for the facility. Hopefully one day it will be replaced with development. There will still be enough parking with the 8 story Bellemeade parking deck located diagonally across the street.
  9. Lol well you can bet Carroll will have his name in it somewhere. The problem with the current name is that its too long and people will start calling it SOB lol. Kinda like the restaurant on Spring Garden Street called Mother Tuckers. You can guess at what people nickname it lol. Oh I'm heading over to MFs lol.
  10. My guess is that there will likely be some architectural changes. That's been the case with the last two big developments Carroll has built downtown. Both Center Pointe and Carroll at Bellemeade had earlier renderings before the final design.
  11. After the success of the National Folk Festival in Greensboro, the North Carolina Folk Festival calls Greensboro home and it has some major bragging rights. Based on attendance, the North Carolina Folk Festival is ranked as one of the world's largest music festivals. This also makes it North Carolina's largest music festival. The festival brings in big names like Grandmaster Flash. https://www.charlottestories.com/north-carolina-is-now-home-to-one-of-the-biggest-music-festivals-in-the-world/?fbclid=IwAR1_MTOE87FiH1Msbxg7v6uskZhC2ByXpnSzyCUIkMIfpRg0FkYnBarXnEc Video scenes from the National Folk Festival in Greensboro
