Downtown Greensboro Developments

Recommended Posts

Little information about the future Eugene Street Parking deck, which with be on the interior of Roy Carroll's mixed-use development.

Bidding site says its 9 stories which means Carroll's project may be at least that tall to hide the deck.

The bid date for the deck is March 26th. It was posted March 13 th.

Carroll plans to build an office building on the corner of Eugene and Bellemeade with residential and an Aloft Hotel along Eugene. The parking deck will be hidden by Carroll's project. The deck access will be on Eugene St.

Looks like the configuration has changed since last summer. The latest configuration puts the Aloft Hotel with the office building north of the deck. 

City documents also call it a "future mixed-use hotel and office tower" This confirms Carroll is still planning something tall. Maybe not as tall as the first plan.

This means only the residential and MAYBE a convention center will be south of the deck

Pay wall

Carroll already has the designs for his development south of the ballpark. In 12 days we'll see what Carroll has planned. Can't wait!

Roy Carroll's Greensboro based Carroll Companies is one of the largest development companies in the southeast. For those of you who live in Charlotte, he builds the Bee Safe Storages. There is one nestled on the edge of downtown Greensboro and midtown. He is downtown Greensboro's most active developer. He renovated the 16 story old Wachovia tower and turned it into Center Pointe Condominiums (him and his family live in the penthouse unit) , purchased the CityView Apartments and built Carroll at Bellemeade/Hyatt Place. His company builds major projects in Texas, Florida and all over the southeast. The mixed-use Westin development in Wilmington is his project. Carroll is one of Greensboro's most wealthiest residents owning his own jet and yacht.

Roy Carroll has become Greensboro's next Joe Koury.

One day until this now. I'm pretty excited to see what he has in store for downtown

Some construction photo updates.

Steven Tanger Center. Won't be long before exterior walls start going up. Just think a year from now this facility will open with its first Broadway show. One thing to point out...the Tanger Center will probably be just as successful as DPAC in Durham. Season ticket pre-sales for the Tanger Center are setting national records for a new performing arts center.

Construction fencing for Project Slugger office building 

I'm so thrilled they are going back to building it at 9 stories. Sometimes delays are a good thing.

Starting on the third floor for the Hampton Inn and Suites. Technically 4th floor. Its called a 6 story building but it actually has 7 floor. However it will be 8 stories tall with the top portion of the building.

Cityboi...have you been up to date on a development map for GSO? I'm intrigued to see the breadth and status of projects in the city. Or at least to get a sense of where all this is concentrating. 

Thanks!

Pay wall but the article says a 5 story mixed use building with office and apartments will be going up on the edge of downtown near midtown. 34,200 square feet of office space and 32 apartments. Nice to see this kind of development which will bridge downtown and midtown development.  Pretty soon you wont be able to tell where downtown ends and midtown begins. Its also an indication that office development is picking up in the downtown area.

If this is done well, it would make a nice gateway entering downtown. This site also fronts onto the future A&Y greenway, near where it will come into the Downtown Greenway. Hopefully the building will interact with the trail - could be a neat little spot.

Action Greensboro is awarded a $75,000 grant that will used for a major art installation along the 4 mile downtown Greenway loop that encircles downtown. The greenway is expected to be complete in 2020. One thing I will say. Downtown Greensboro has been getting some significant public art over the past several years and large scale. The illuminated net sculpture in LeBauer Park is one example. It was designed by an international known artist with similar net like sculptures around the world in major cities. Greensboro is the only city in the south with that kind of sculpture

"The $36 million greenway project, financed with public and private funds, is expected to be completed in 2020.

The $75,000 grant will go toward a large-scale work created by Raleigh-based artist Thomas Sayre, known for his monumental sculptures made in and of the earth."

Example of his work.

And this cool V8 vantage on battleground by wendys within 5 minutes(i love car spotting, i am a member of Exoticspotters.

:good: Think you're right about the car under the cover, it does look like an Elise or Exige, which is one of my favorite cars ever actually.  I'm a huge car enthusiast too, been taking pics of cars for years.  Just sent you a pm, you'll have to send a few other pics over!

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

About 12 smart kiosks are being installed downtown that will provide information about restaurants, retail, public transportation,events and other attractions downtown. They will also have free wifi hotspots. They will look like large smartphones. To my knowledge Greensboro is the first city in North Carolina to install these downtown. Raleigh has plans for them too.
