  1. Buncombe St. Mixed Use Project

    Yeah I was confused by the original post on this and was expecting a makeover of the building itself. I guess this is the parking lot directly across? I like this better than all the modern stuff going up but would like to have seen a little more density for this site with maybe a 6-7 story building. And also has one of my pet peeves; a flat roof. That's a long building to have nothing up top to break up the monotony. This will help extend development though, and I wonder what will become of the clone properties. There's lots of room down that way all the way to where McBees Diner used to be.
  2. Proposal: 708 S. Main

    I sympathize and would rather have seen something more along the lines of the university ridge condo building, but at least this modern box isn't a simple cube. It does have some extra designs and elements that make it more interesting than many of the others. I give it a 5 out of 10 (the univ ridge would probably be an 8-9, with McBee Station being a 0).
  3. Haywood Rd Redevelopment

    This would fit in PERFECTLY downtown!
  4. Alta Vista Place condos

    From the street this is one of the best looking buildings in Greenville. We can get it right when we try!
  5. 1100 S. Main St Apartments (Pendleton Street Baptist Church)

    Wow, now that last picture makes us look like a real city! Great pics gman!
  6. Florence City/County Pics

    Thanks for the pics and keeping the Florence thread going. Florence will always have a special place in my heart with so many family roots there and in the Pew Dee.
  7. Augusta Square

    Agreed. I just don't like the style and think it's lazy and uninspired architecture. Sigh... everything is so fast, cheap, disposable, mass produced these days... they sure don't make em like they used to!
  8. Augusta Square

    Not seeing what you guys are. This design looks terrible. It's another modern box that looks like EVERY other one going up now. Come on, where's the creativity and character???
  9. AC Hotel on West Main

    Just checked it out. Pretty bad but honestly i think it's better than some of the stuff going up in Greenville, ESPECIALLY the Aloft. Havent been to Sburg in a few years but a lot of their new stuff at least showed some thought to it. I know it's not "Greenville" per se, but our architects, or the projects getting approved, just seem to be putting out so many lazy and boring designs. They're just being thrown up with no thought. This AC Hotel did it right. There's no reason that Greenville powers that be can't ask for a little more from these architects. Way to go Sburg on this one.
  10. GSP International

    August numbers are out and 185k came through, or + 8.6 percent increase. After a slow first three months of the year, the passengers have really taken off. The last four months have seen an increase of 8.6, 8.5, 8.9, and 6.0, over the same month last year. We're on pace to pass 2.1 MM. September and October are historically two of our busiest months as well.
  11. AC Hotel on West Main

    Embarrassing that Greenviles proposed AC and the Aloft hotels are so stinking awful when Spartanburg can get it right. Awesome looking building there. I'm still amazed that this has only 114 rooms. Greenville has gotten several new ones with more rooms and they are short ugly boxes. Greenville architecture...
  12. Camperdown (Greenville News Building Site)

    I mostly agree, it's tolerable and much better than some of the other architecture going up but it doesn't look like it took much creative thought and doesn't step up the game here. Glad to see less brick but looks like a smaller box stacked oddly on a larger box. I see some of the buildings going up in sister cities and its hard to understand why ours are always so bland and uninspired.
  13. When Will Greenville Be Ready For Height?

    Should be some good height, but remember this is a pretty low spot in DT. I also would have liked to see something not flat on top, maybe a pointed top penthouse or office or something.
  14. When Will Greenville Be Ready For Height?

    That's often true but then you have situations like in Mobile where they have much taller buildings without the density. I don't think people expect Greenville to build a 70 story building or 3-4, 35 story ones, but it makes sense if we can get 15 , 8 story ones over the past ten years we could have also gotten one 24 story one and twelve 8 story ones, or even a 32, a 24, and eight 8s. A little variety and layer never hurt.

    A little dramatic perhaps? What's important about a skyline? Not much really. There's a bit of a cool factor, but that doesn't really matter in the end. Still, fair or unfair, skylines have become a visual scale on which people often judge a cities size, importance, and opportunity. I think people just want to see Greenville s better represent it's true nature.
