Mods. Can you delete the other wilson thread?

Whirligig station. The city is converting an old warehouse into apartments and retail in downtown Wilson! Good to see a town in eastern NC doing so well...or at least making a turn in that direction. Sounds like it will be really cool.

Here is the Business Journal article about this expansion.  445 jobs added in a county that has 81,000 people like Wilson County would be the equivalent of like having 4000 plus job expansion in a Wake or Mecklenburg county.  Great win for Wilson, eastern NC and the state as a whole.  https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2017/11/21/german-firm-pledges-100m-to-expand-wilson.html?ana=e_ae_set1&s=article_du&ed=2017-11-21&u=oAaDx%2B74FoP4qOJ%2By4AU6dhJPpc&t=1511310609&j=79213831

New Innovation Center to be located in Downtown Wilson. Construction to start sometime this fall.  Pretty impressive for a town this size. I know Wilson has already been ranked highly for start up companies. I guess Greenlight  (their city owned high speed internet and tv service) might be finally paying off.
