We hope your week’s off to a great start! There’s been a lot of news recently about new development to further enhance downtown Greenville, and we wanted to make you aware of what’s happening.
First, for the West End, plans have been submitted for developing a currently vacant area where River Street meets South Main. The tentative plans include a “pedestrian-friendly” walking area, space for several retail shops, and 30-40 new apartments.
New living spaces—including condos—are also in the works for the space where the old Greenville News building now stands. This 4-acre area across from the Peace Center will potentially contain retail, office space, and even a dine-in movie theater. (More details on this project are available here.)
We also learned of a few other projects that are “recycling” downtown historic buildings. First, the old Corner Pocket (where Coffee Street meets Brown Street, just off Main) will be converted into a new restaurant.
And then, for you literary types, the historic Family Court building on Main (next to the Westin Poinsett) will be converted into a hip bookstore and café, with hopes that it will also be a gathering place for local authors.
Of course there’s other new construction currently going on in downtown Greenville (have you noticed the two giant cranes on our ever-changing skyline?). Our city’s continually growing and adding great new businesses and attractions. It’s a great time to jump in on the action—what are you waiting for?
If you can’t wait to move here, give us a call and we’ll help make it happen!
