Eastern North Carolina Development News

Hey you all! I used to live in the Eastern part of North Carolina. I just wondered if there was a thread dedicated to it yet? If not, here it is, I guess. I guess anything east of I-95 would be the line drawn.
Places like Greenville, Jacksonville, Washington, Elizabeth City, New Bern, Atlantic Beach, Morehead City, Wilmington and the Outer Banks.
Does anyone have any new development news in these cities that could be passed on?

Thanks.

Steve

Steve, I truly thought about starting a thread dedicated to Eastern North Carolina, but my time and energy are limited Naturally, Wilmington would get much of the focus, being the largest city in that area of the state and having many nice projects. I will try to put together a list, if I find time.

Thanks, iamnorthcarolina. Let me post some renderings and images, so we can all see what is coming to the Eastern NC:

East Carolina Heart Institute


Skysail




DeGraffen


The Grander


To these, we can add the following projects from Wilmington:

PPD Headquarters (Wilmington, NC)


Wilmington Riverfront (Wilmington, NC)






Bannerman Station (Wilmington, NC)

Very nice projects!! I know that the main Hospital in Greenville is a really good one. Pretty large too.
The Wilmington projects look very cool as well.
The PPD HQ's look cool.
Skysail is a cool project! New Bern has it going on!
The DeGraffen looks very ritzy! Probably the most expensive digs around there!

I used to work in Washington, NC. I wonder if anything big is going on there?
Great job guys!

My family lives in Greenville and I will be going there tomorrow. I know there is a new Kohl's opening where the old mall used to be off Memorial. It should be open now. The mall was torn down, except Sears is still open. There is suppose to be more development, but nothing has been announced yet. I think there be a grocery as well.

Not too far away, they have built a new movie theater..the Greenville Grande. There is surrounding retail, but I am not sure if anything has opened yet.

I know of a couple of new restaurants that have opened in recent months or are about to...Gilligan's and Rucker Johns. I think both will serve the area well.

I wish more was being done downtown, but maybe in the future....

Yeah, Greenville has a mall. The mall your thinking about is the old one that had the sears in it.

The mall on Greenville Blvd is still there...Colonial mall

I keep seeing posts that say Greenville, but none of the pics are from here. This is confusing.

LOL! Yeah, I've been to both many, many times. South Carolina's Greenville is the obvious larger Greenville. But one thing I remember about Greenville North Carolina is that their University, ECU, was always known as one of the largest and best party schools ever!!! Alot of girls! Those were the days...
Greenville, SC= Textile Town USA.
Greenville, NC= Party Town USA.

Potential? Absolutely!
Eastern NC is so sparsely developed. Alot of land to build on.
I believe though, that part of the allurement of Eastern NC is the open spaces and undeveloped land and small towns and waterways.

Eastern North Carolina's real potential is still unrealized. They try too hard to build McMansions near the water and miss the opportunity to build on the existing urbanity of the older towns. Wilmington is definitely a leading city and its historic preservation is unsurpassed by any other NC city. Let's hope this continues. Another great town is New Bern and I should take a trip there one of these days. I remember how much I liked it during my last visit - several years ago - and I am looking forward to checking out the progress.

I grew up near Wilmington and have family there. I am glad to see it growing and saving the old along the way.
