  1. A well-designed playground/park certainly will do more to attract and enhance urban vitality than most of the former gimmickry (ferris wheel, water slide, etc.).
  2. My information may not be completely accurate, considering this source: "The walls of the room are split-face block, sealed with a clear sealer. Because the sealer did not entirely fill the block’s pores the room is not as reverberant as originally expected; however, given the room’s range of use this has not been a problem." "The Peace Center illustrates the idea that smaller cities deserve excellent arts facilities, and that such facilities can be built on a modest budget. The Center has been an important part of revitalizing Greenville’s downtown as well as supporting local arts groups."
  3. Yes, they were intended to provide outstanding acoustics (and they do), but during construction, some of the block cell columns failed to receive the proper amount of grout filler and this apparently negatively affected the acoustic rating.
  4. That map needs an upgrade. Gattitown has been out of business several years, was not located where the Holiday Inn Express is, and Palmetto State Armory has been in the same location (former Gattitown building) several years now, not in the old Capel Rugs/Spectrum space.
  5. But at first glance it doesn't seem that tall. Nice complementary design without too much compromise.
  6. Really like this one, with so many undeniable signs of growth. Loved the cranes in Asheville's skyline and love them in Greenville's skyline. I understand the concerns of some people regarding rapid growth, but this is where I don't mind seeing it - the Upstate's heart of urban activity.
  7. I have been hopeful the northeastern quadrant of Main at Broad will eventually be transformed into the tallest building in Greenville. It is an ideal location, especially if a developer can acquire the adjacent property(ies) fronting South Spring Street.
  8. A recent article mentioned a vision to redevelop that property into a large cancer research center.
  9. Did I not recently see a "coming soon" sign in the window with the name of a fitness store/gym? Oh, here is the answer to my question. Not coming to the Bevello space.
  10. If this remains true, then that would be great, although maximizing the potential of the space along Broad will be difficult via a detached/stand-alone development.

    The Gateway Site

    I wonder if anyone has considered building a large, mixed-use development with conference/convention center, hotel, residential, retail, and perhaps museum space, on the Gateway site (incorporating significant property across Beattie Place).
  12. Not a bad design, but the position of the building on the property seems short-sighted.
  13. A sad reality about aesthetic appeal is that a pile of poop can be declared "beautiful" by some highly educated people.
  14. I highly recommend a visit to the Biltmore Estate while their Gardens Railway miniature trains are on display (through September). Anything remotely similar would be a significant attraction in Greenville. The creators of the Biltmore displays, Applied Imagination, are among the best in the industry.
