The historic Dixie building at the corner of Bellemeade and Eugene streets across from the Grasshoppers stadium in Greensboro came down today. The former apartment building, along with the structure that housed the famous lesbian bar Time Out was torn down to make space for a mixed-use complex by developer Roy Carroll.

Carroll, who owns the Center Pointe condo tower downtown and the right-wing Rhino Times newspaper, plans to include a hotel as part of the project.
