  1. A rush? Hasn't this been in the works for many months, if not a couple of years? There is no rush. The plans were made and the money has been raised. Moving forward with the right plans is what needs to happen. You are only of less than a handful of people that is not happy. Besides, building costs will never drop, no matter what happens with inflation. I should add, I was told by a builder this past week that many building supplies have come down in cost or have leveled out. Now is the time. Let's make it happen. It is only going to cost more if we wait.
  2. This tower is spectacular. I am proud of what the city has accomplished with Unity Park and now with Unity Tower. We live in a special community.
  3. “Justin Timberlake invests in Par 3 golf course in Greenville, South Carolina.” https://www.wyff4.com/article/justin-timberlake-par-3-greenville-south-carolina/41992908

  5. “Saltwater Kitchen has permanently closed.” https://upstatebusinessjournal.com/eat-drink/haywood-mall-rick-erwin-dining-group-saltwater-kitchen-has-closed/
  6. That is a terrible name. A suggestion is, “Sirrine District”, a nod to the history of Sirrine Stadium. Also, at one time, it was mentioned that a replica of the original Bell Tower would be built. The development could be called, “Bell Tower.” Updated to say that I forgot that we already have the Water Tower District in Greenville. It includes all of the water tower’s located beside the old mills that are being redeveloped. Adding another “Tower” district must be fun.

"Greenville developer spends $2.7M for 12 acres along future Swamp Rabbit Trail." https://www.postandcourier.com/greenville/business/greenville-developer-spends-2-7m-for-12-acres-along-future-swamp-rabbit-trail/article_d1a02da4-4a2d-11ed-9711-23e633590ee1.html Sorry, I just noticed this Newly Upstate has already posted this article. Unable to delete.
  9. It is tall, but it will get built.
  10. The students don’t refer to their school being called Wade Hampton. They say, “The Wade.”

    The Gateway Site

    Don’t believe the impatient one’s on this board. This project is not dead.
  12. It is actually called the Greenville Winter Invitational. So far, the schedule is: Clemson/Richmond Furman/Stephen F. Austin South Carolina/East Carolina
  13. Does this have something to do with the new Greenville Winter Basketball Classic coming the in December?
  14. “Grand Bohemian Lodge, overlooking Greenville’s centerpiece falls, cuts the ribbon.” https://www.postandcourier.com/greenville/business/grand-bohemian-lodge-overlooking-greenvilles-centerpiece-falls-cuts-the-ribbon/article_b37b1dc8-352b-11ed-a810-03bdc1aae1f1.html?utm_campaign=blox&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social
  15. My guess is the Peace Center announcement from yesterday will move this convention center project forward quickly. There is no doubt they would compliment each other. Our leadership is too good to let this project die.
  16. Augusta Village sold to Burroughs & Chapin. “Myrtle Beach legacy business Burroughs & Chapin buys Greenville shopping center.” https://www.postandcourier.com/myrtle-beach/news/myrtle-beach-legacy-business-burroughs-chapin-buys-greenville-shopping-center/article_95269392-32c0-11ed-9bc0-cf95b020f17d.html?utm_campaign=blox&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social
  17. I am glad that remake died. The last major renovation was completed in 2012, and it looks absolutely beautiful.
  18. One of my friends tried to get a room for one night as a celebration of he and his wife’s anniversary. The hotel is sold out for the first 30 days. This hotel is going to be our version of the Grove Park Inn., but newer and better.
  19. Birrieria 101 opens today on Wade Hampton Blvd, in the strip center across from the Wade Hampton Fire Dept. They are moving from a walk up only location in Berea. Awesome food. Follow them on Facebook
  20. Out of curiosity I checked room rates for the middle of December. The average per night rate is about $460.00. Hotel rates everywhere are crazy.
  21. My wife and I drove around the West Greenville area Friday afternoon. It is unreal what is happening. New apartments, new homes and new retail is going up everywhere. Our first home was in Sans Souci in 1981. Those little houses are now going for over $250,000. It is hard to believe how fast the entire Greenville area is changing. I do feel bad for the poor. I want to say they are moving to the Berea area, but new homes are going up there too. The only area in Greenville County that seems to be not affected by the dramatic changes is from White Horse/Hwy 253 to White Horse/Augusta Rd. It will be interesting to see where we are in 20 years.
