Incentives Do Work | GE to Expand in NC | Aviation in Wilmington/Castle Hayne

Wilmington / Castle Hayne NC

In May the New Hanover county commissioners agreed on a 875,000 incentive plan to General Electric Aviation, Castle Hayne site on a planned investment of 63 million dollars. There will be additional jobs added, but the bulk of the investment is to purchase new progressive technology.  Very good news for our area.  The planned investments will include a new manufacturing center in Ashville NC.  The announcements were made at the Paris Air Show this week.  Orders for LEAP, CF34 and GEnx-1B engines were announced as well.  There is a global demand for these engines, prompting GE to invest in the NC plants.

Each April, a full week of natural beauty, big-name entertainment, festive galas, fun family events and Southern hospitality come together to showcase the charms of the Wilmington area. For community pride and springtime pageantry, the North Carolina Azalea Festival has no equal!

The Festival’s concerts, fairs and special events are viewed by more than one million people each year, in person and through media coverage. More than 200,000 are estimated to attend the annual two-day street fair, while more than 100,000 gather to watch the Festival parade. Each event is a celebration, beginning with the traditional arrival of Queen Azalea at the official opening of the five-day event. Stars glitter throughout town as Southern belles and their escorts promenade through lush gardens at the annual garden party. Everywhere the blooming azaleas offer colorful testimony to the rich heritage of coastal Carolina.

The Festival is a great source of local pride, with the entire community involved in displaying Wilmington to the world in its finest colors. More than 1,000 volunteers are required to stage over 50 events ranging from concerts to art shows, a street fair with interactive displays, home and garden tours, a parade, special exhibits, a circus and a variety of other entertainment and events.”

Wilmington NC | Screen Gems Studio to get Iron Man III

10/27/2011

Well it is official. Screen Gems Studio and Wilmington NC will be host to the filming of IRon Man III. Welcome to our great town. Enjoy.

So why is Gov. Perdue coming to Wilmington today to Screen Gems Studio to make an announcement? We shall know at 2:30 pm. North Carolina beat out Michigan in posssible places to film Iron Man 3. Aaron Syrett, director of the N.C. Film Office sent out an email last night to members of the state film council about the visit. The studio has made a call for crew members for another production, rumor has it that it is really for Iron Man 3. More later after 2:30 today. Cross those fingers and get ready to say “Welcome to Wilmington Iron Man III” we hope…..

Rumors abound. According to the Latino Review, a website that reviews and researches films, director Shane Black is scouting the Wilmington NC area to film Iron Man 3. The previous versions have all been filmed in Los Angeles and the thought is that the director would like a change of scenery for the sequel. Screen Gems Studio is home to many movies and television shows. Currently “One Tree Hill” and “Eastbound and Down” are being filmed in the area. Colin Firth and Emily Blunt will start filming in the area for ” Arthur Newman – Golf Pro” in October. If the rumor is true Iron Man will be taking over 10 of Screen Gems sound stages and set designs are rumored to have already started. Filming should start in June 2012 and the release should be May 3, 2013. The budget for Iron Man 2 was $200 million and this film should have a similar budget. We welcome you Shane Black, Robert Downey Jr. and crew. You will love Wilmington NC and the creative crew at Screen Gems Studio. You will also love the people of Wilmington NC, who make the city we live in “perfect”.

James F. Post, Architect
Rufus Bunnell, Draftsman

The Bellamy Mansion is one of North Carolina’s most spectacular examples of antebellum architecture built on the eve of the Civil War by free and enslaved black artisans, for John Dillard Bellamy (1817-1896) physician, planter and business leader; and his wife, Eliza McIlhenny Harriss (1821-1907) and their nine children. After the fall of Fort Fisher in 1865, Federal troops commandeered the house as their headquarters during the occupation of Wilmington. Now the house is a museum that focuses on history and the design arts and offers tours, changing exhibitions and an informative look at historic preservation in action.
