DT Burlington revitalization.... finally

3 posts in this topic

Burlington has expanded west and south beyond many people's imagination over the last decade. Even though it's brought (and will continue to bring) big names to Alamance County, it has also slowly sucked the life out of downtown and points east. Finally, plans to bring some life back to downtown have been made by local businessmen. In an effort to liken Greensboro's Elm St., lets hope these plans come to fruition!

This certainly is great news. Burlington is actually one of the most fastest growing cities in the state and this looks like a great idea for downtown. If you cant attract comapnies to downtown, build the center-city as an entertainment and cultural hub. The plans are very ambitious and we could see all this quickly happen the way it did in Greensboro.

Looks like by the end of next year, construction will begin on downtown streetscape improvements to eventually make way for upscale condos, restaurants, and more in downtown Burlington. A number of buildings have already been purchased with right around the Depot on Front Street in response to this master plan. The Cutting Board restaurant that burned down at it's old location 2 years ago will be reopened downtown. The 1-3 mile radius around the center of downtown is actually pretty heavily populated and I think even now, a grocery store chain would be sustainable downtown. This is definitely big news for Burlington!!!
