“We’ve had conversations about how it would be nice to have an open space component to the site, particularly since the project itself will be encroaching on some current open space in downtown,” Wilson City Manager Grant Goings said. “The bank and the city have mutual interests in seeing that replaced, but the possibilities are endless. This is an attractive corner of downtown and integral to making a good impression, so we appreciate the bank being willing to partner with us to make something positive happen.” Internal discussions about the project have taken place behind closed doors for about a year, but Goings said it was very clear that BB&T was committed to Wilson.
