Midtown Greensboro Developments

11 posts in this topic

An area along Battleground Ave just northwest of downtown (extending to Westover Terrace) which includes a multiplex theater, retail and restaurants is starting to be called midtown Greensboro. Friendly Center and affluent neighborhoods are nearby. The most recent development news is a large street side retail project fronting Battleground Ave next to RED Cinemas movie theater. While this is not new news (was reported in July) I did get a scoop on what is planned for phase 2 which would include a residential or maybe even a hotel component. I just recently heard that a 10-story tower could be going up next to the movie theater.

There was a hint in the article below

"Phase two of the project would be to the right side of the theater. That phase could be another 20,000-square-foot building with a similar investment, or it could be something bigger"

It will be interesting to see that area will really start to urbanize. I always thought the area along battleground had potential to become a more dense urban node.

Marty Kotis just purchased additional property adjacent to the theater going towards downtown. Kotis says the additional property would help his mid-rise project grow in size and scope. The new property could be the site of a high-rise hotel.

The residential and retail portion next door. The residential portion will be built behind the current Red Cinemas movie theater. According to their Facebook page,  the hotel, retail and restaurants would be a part of the first phase. The apartments would be built in the following phase

Downtown has Roy Carroll and now Midtown has Marty Kotis. 

 

WFMY did a news clip on midtown developments

Also here is an updated flythrough of the retail, theater,  8 story condos, 10 story hotel development. Kotis says construction on the retail portion around the theater will begin this year. 

Developer Marty Kotis is working with a large upscale grocery store to come to midtown. I hope its Wegmans. Everything will be linked by the greenway which will link to the downtown greenway. Kotis wants midtown to blend in with downtown like Atlanta. 

Also the large upscale grocery store Kotis is in talks with for Midtown could be Wegmans. Sources say the chain is looking at site in Greensboro for the Triad's first Wegmans

^ I misspoke, was thinking of the open pockets along Benjamin, so am having trouble placing this now, the article says the developer owns 45 acres, bounded by Benjamin Pkwy, Cornwallis and Battleground, thats a massive triangle that is all residential, and far more than 45 acres, where exactly is this being proposed?
