Since we featured the collaborative workspace of the Chamber of Commerce yesterday, we thought we would follow up with the actual office space for the organization. Currently, the Chamber is located at 342 North Elm Street. According to their website, the Chamber prides itself in being "dedicated to nurturing the growth and prosperity of our members and making Greensboro a better place to learn, earn, and live" (reference). They work tirelessly to promote our city to businesses and organizations considering relocating here. From the moment you walk through the front door, it is obvious that they are promoting GREENSBORO!
Soon, the Chamber will be relocating to the old Myers Department Store space downtown. The building is located at 200 South Elm Street, by the International Civil Rights Museum. It was built in 1924 and is currently undergoing significant renovation with the architectural details of the facade being retained. Here is how the Myers Building looked, under construction, a few months ago when we featured it on GDP (link, here). At the time, we did not know one of its tenants was going to be the Chamber of Commerce. Hopefully, this move in the heart of downtown will work out well. Their old space will become parking for the new performing arts center.
We sound like a broken record, but Greensboro is changing before our eyes!
