Abstract:
For years the sixteen-story Wachovia building in the heart of downtown Greensboro has been an aging, empty building that defied all attempts to rehabilitate it. In 2004, developer Roy E. Carroll, II had plans for the building's use. He would convert the former bank building into luxury condominiums. The new, $40 million project is called Center Pointe, and completion is scheduled for 2008. The building will contain ninety-eight upscale condominiums ranging in price from around $200,000 to $3 million.

Abstract:
Jim Early, of Winston-Salem, the author of THE BEST TAR HEEL BARBEQUE: MANTEO TO MURPHY, has selected twenty-five barbecue establishments to make up the North Carolina Barbecue Society's Historic Barbecue Trail. To qualify, each restaurant had to be in business a minimum of fifteen years; make its own sauce; offer sit-down dining; and cook real North Carolina-style pork barbecue on site. That means the pig must be cooked in a pit over wood or charcoal.

Abstract:
North Carolina's ports are expanding to meet growing volume demands. According to the Ports Authority records, total tonnage at the state's two ports has increased by 53.1 percent since 2003.

In 2006, the state spent another $30 million to purchase land in Brunswick County for a third port--the North Carolina International Port. Harris discusses the renovations at the two existing ports and plans for the new international port which will take ten to twelve years to complete.

Abstract:
The future of air cargo in North Carolina is promising. It is the fastest-growing segment of the United States freight industry, growing at an annual rate of around 8 percent internationally and 6 percent nationally since 1980. Since air cargo begins and ends with the trucking industry, an increase in air means an increase on the ground. The industry has been increasing at the state's three major airports--Charlotte Douglas, Piedmont Triad in Greensboro, and Raleigh-Durham. Harris discusses the growth of this industry in North Carolina.
