Downtown Greensboro is Changing

Expanded interest and development in downtown in recent years has created an exciting buzz for the area around Greensboro and throughout North Carolina. With increased interest in the area by residents, property and business owners, and developers, we are poised to encourage new development that celebrates downtown Greensboro’s unique character and the areas that support it.

Working with numerous downtown stakeholders and the public, the City of Greensboro, Action Greensboro, and Downtown Greensboro Inc. have created a Downtown Design Manual to provide a flexible framework to promote quality design, enhance our urban character, and maintain long-term compatibility.
