Really good stuff

The N&R reports on two great steps forward for downtown Greensboro.

On behalf of Action Greensboro, The Weaver Foundation is purchasing the 4.3 acre Duke Power site on North Church Street @ Friendly Ave. for an undisclosed amount, “(b)ut it is being sold at a very favorable price…” according to a Duke Power representative.  There is speculation about how the land will be used, including:  a concert hall, expansion of the adjacent Children’s Museum, and – perhaps an IMAX theatre which would create a complex similar to Charlotte’s Discovery Place.

The Ole Asheboro Neighborhood has been working on their master plan for nearly a decade.  Today’s article gives us a glimpse of the Neighborhood’s vision (PDF file) for itself.  Approval of these plans will come before City Council early next month.  It should sail right through… the plans are wonderful.
