Greensboro plans for input on growth of DT cultural district

Recommended Posts

It appears that properties will be opening up for development and local foundations are land banking to prevent undesirable development. I think its great that leaders are doing this. The Weaver Foundation just purchased the largest availble tract yesterday, the former Duke Power site (4.3 acres). A few years back Action Greensboro had proposed that a science museum and IMAX theater be built there. Adjacent to that property is the children's museum and they are planning to expand.

Very forward-thinking. Looks as though the new park will serve as the focal point for the new district, which is what a park/square should do. Now all you guys need is a light-rail stop at the park and you'll be in business. :thumbsup:

this is a nice idea! hopefully the city will suggest more developments centered around the tourist (like that science museum proposal) instead of more residential/retail. too bad the civil rights museum wont be included in this district. :(
