New year to bring new look to downtown Greensboro

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The new year will bring a new look to some parts of downtown Greensboro.

At South Elm and Lee streets, construction on a joint university campus for nursing students could start in the early part of 2014.

Construction and renovations continue at the Southeastern building downtown Greensboro and will offer apartments, retail and business space.

Two new hotels could build up downtown and transform the skyline.

Demolition is also set to start soon on the north end of Elm Street to make room for the new performing arts center. It is set to open in 2016 after about 18 months of construction.

Greensboro resident Caroline Maness sees a lot of potential in downtown Greensboro.

"If we're trying to invite people to come and visit, trying to invite people to come and settle here or bring their business here, the town has to have flavor," she said.

"We have work to do," she added. "But Greensboro's come pretty far."
