Attendees of a Tuesday meetup at 217 Brew Works discussed ideas for amenities of the Gig East Exchange. "I want the community to see this building and see opportunity," said exchange manager Darren Smith. Some of the ideas pitched included programs and workshops for Wilsonians from young entrepreneurs to retirees, a rooftop garden and state-of-the-art technology. Construction on the facility at 127 Goldsboro St. is set to begin this month with plans to open in February.
