Downtown Greensboro

Recommended Posts

photo thread for downtown Greensboro. Downtown has changed dramatically over the last 15 years and things will look even brighter with the major upcoming downtown projects which includes 3 downtown hotels, a 3,000 seat performing arts center, another urban park, continued construction on the downtown greenway, new apartments, Union Square campus, beer garden, several breweries, a possible distillery restaurant and even a carousel. Downtown is even landing major national events. The National Folk Festival will call downtown Greensboro home for the next three years.

Not sure what's taking Carroll so long to finish up the rest of the apartment buildings but the exterior of all the buildings are just about complete. Its taking him 4 years to build this!

Took some night time photos downtown. I was amazed that so many people were downtown on a Sunday night. People walking the streets, drinking at bars. Even some of the nightclubs were banging.

I used to live in Charlotte, and I’m now in Chapel Hill.  I’m impressed with Greensboro.  It’s already nice, but it has a lot of potential to become really fantastic.

Took a few photos tonight. Looks like they have installed quite a few of the smart kiosks. They'll be operational in time for the folk festival next week.

They have the Smart Kiosks lit up. The screens were on earlier today. I took a few pics of several of them. The tops change from one color to another.

 

Eventually they will add more of these kiosk on sidewalks along Gate City Blvd near the UNCG village, the Coliseum and the Koury Convention Center so it will expand beyond downtown. Each kiosk will provide information about events that's nearby that kiosks. For example a kiosk near the Coliseum will provide information about events at the coliseum complex and info about nearby restaurants and retail along Gate City Blvd. A Kiosk at LeBauer Park downtown will provide information about events happening at the park including dates and times. A planned kiosk at the ballpark will likely give info about home games and times. But they will all still give the same general information about city services and transportation.

Dixie building on South Elm next to the Elm Street Center/future Westin Hotel. This is a gorgeous building that I could see being converted to a hotel like Hotel Indigo.

The Guilford Building built in 1926 was originally supposed to be a hotel. Instead it was a bank headquarters. Today small businesses lease space in the tower but I would like to eventually see it being converted to a mixed use hotel/apartment tower.
