Kevin Phillips, managing partner of Phillips Management Company, has purchased the Chandler Concrete site on Mill St. between Battleground Ave and Westover Terrace in Greensboro (see map below). While plans for the site itself weren’t detailed there was an interesting twist that will benefit the Greensboro community at large. From the Triad Business Journal:
Prior to the sale, Thomas Chandler Jr., president of Chandler Concrete Co., signed the restrictive covenant which agrees to cease use of the rail line running behind the Mill Street property.
That agreement sets the stage for further development of both the Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway along Battleground Avenue and the 1-mile western leg of the Downtown Greenway, said Dabney Sanders, the Downtown Greenway project manager with Action Greensboro…
“We are now in the process of determining potential uses and development of this property,” Mill Street Commons LLC said in an emailed statement. “We are supportive of Greensboro’s continued economic growth and the expansion of its nationally renowned greenways and trail systems, and look forward to working with a wide range of city, county and community leaders as we explore ideas for this property.”
