  1. Since the Oklahoma City terrorist attack on the Murrah Federal Building, new Federal buildings, especially courthouses, have had a lot more restrictions on how they are built, especially regarding built in safety measures. Since 9/11, the impetus to enforce those regulations for newer Federal buildings has really stepped up too. I think you could find online sources about those kind of regulations - set back from roads, the amount of glass used, the type of construction materials, access to underground parking garages, etc. The General Service Administration, the Federal agency that woul
  2. I believe linkerj can add more, since his office is in that building, but I know the ARP has been wanting to sell that building for a while.
  3. Do you mean the tower at Westminster Presbyterian?
  4. Maybe, but the Braves organization just has a unique minor league business model. I think they are the only MLB club that owns all its minor league clubs. They have a nice set up outside Jackson, MS. It's a similar ballpark to Fluor Field, just in the suburbs. I have no idea what their cost structures are, but they seem to be doing well. I do miss the Braves though, and AA ball. Attendance for last year, the pre number is the rank among all minor league baseball: 51. Greenville Drive (SAL) 339,356 80. Mississippi Braves (SL) 246,674 The highest attendance of any Single
  5. The ballgame part is the only thing I would change about the Drive experience. Low single A baseball is hit and miss sometimes.
  6. Did anyone attend the opening of the 'Shoeless" Joe Jackson museum yesterday? How was the ceremony? How is the museum?
  7. So RT, is that your last post in the Greenville forum? Have you moved?
  8. I believe the building is empty inside. I remember the last time I was in there, for a sporting goods sale, about eight years ago, the structure was empty except for supporting columns and light fixtures.
  9. So the Drive will be on TV a few times this year: http://www.greenvilleonline.com/apps/pbcs....ONTPAGECAROUSEL I'll admit, I'm surprised at this. I guess the Drive found some good sponsors, and for a non major channel like My40, it's neat to see WYFF broadcast a game as well. And it makes sense to broadcast an away game from Asheville, since that is in the TV viewing area as well. I imagine you could broadcast several games v Asheville every year and get two cities interested in the game. I guess it makes for good summer time filler TV entertainment. Drive TV schedule: MY40 June 2
  10. What do you mean by "ready"? A minor league hockey team and a minor league baseball team draw different audiences much of the time. Let's look at how "GVegas" spends its sports spectator dollar. Clemson estimates that on any given home Saturday, roughly 20,000 or so are coming from Greenville. Included in that are booster club donations, along with ticket prices, and tailgating. Furman probably has several thousand, up to 5,000 or so from Greenville county at their football games. I'd guess on any given Friday night in the fall, you would expect another 20,000+ at the various high scho
  11. So is a Kalahari Resort like a water version of "Frankie's Fun Park"?
  12. I believe there has been a Mexican restaurant off of Orchard Park Road that had some faux pink adobe exterior walls? Is that it?
  13. For about 20 years, from 85 to 05, you could have probably have run the state government based on on 8 o'clock client
  14. It's always been busy when I have been there. And most of the folks there Saturday night were under 40, is my guess. Hard to argue with a locally owned establishment that has been around for 87 years. Good steaks, good prices, friendly staff too...
  15. That building has served a variety of functions over the years, including medical offices. I can see C. Dan redeveloping it to catch the rising market near the ball park.
