  1. New downtown federal courthouse

    Construction is scheduled to start on June 5th, 2018 with completion slated for February 23rd, 2021.
  2. New downtown federal courthouse

    It’s early June. I’ve got the entire construction timeline document from the GSA. And agreed about the rendering.

    Everything you need including the latest news is right here: https://www.gsa.gov/about-us/regions/welcome-to-the-southeast-sunbelt-region-4/buildings-and-facilities/south-carolina/new-greenville-us-courthouse Construction starts in June 2018.
  4. Amazon HQ2

    I feel like Raleigh is more of a tech city than Charlotte due to RTP and that’s probably why they got chosen over Charlotte. I see Amazon going to Boston though.

    I doubt it. Daniel Corp. (yes that Daniel from the Fluor past life) is the one building the apartment building. They are a very large experienced southeastern developer. Here are the urban apartment projects they have done: https://www.danielcorp.com/property_type/multifamily-urban-residential/ Some pretty big high-rises in there especially in Atlanta. My guess is that they are waiting to finish the rest of the parking garage first before starting on it.

    Not yet. Webcam here: https://www.senserasystems.com/public/BrasfieldampGorrie/M68625134439 World’s slowest project.
  7. The West End

    According to an article in the Greenville News, the developers are looking to add more office and retail space along with changing the design.

    As of right now it is until that date but after S.C. goes into compliance the first quarter of this year you will be good all the way until 10-01-2020 with just a DL.
  9. The Gateway Site

    You’re right and because of that they should put a QT on site instead.
  10. New Greenville developments

    Some upcoming bids including new zoo entrance, Cleveland Park master plan, and PNG connector: http://www.greenvillesc.gov/Bids.aspx

    Correct. Every resident in every state will need a real ID eventually if you want to board a plane unless you have a passport or military ID. For S.C. residents, it is October 1st, 2020 for when you will start needing this. A DL will no longer work after that date. Only a Real ID, passport, or military ID will work if you want to board a plane: http://www.scdmvonline.com/-/driver-services/drivers-license/real-id About REAL ID The US Congress passed the REAL ID Act of 2005 as a result of the 9/11 Commission’s recommendation to standardize government-issued identifications, like driver’s licenses. This is a federal law that affects federal agencies, federal buildings, and military bases. A REAL ID license is valid for no more than eight years. If you do not think you’ll have a need to fly or visit a federal building, you do not need a REAL ID. If you have a valid US Passport or military ID, or another federally approved identification, you may use that as your identification when you travel instead of changing your license or identification card. Federal buildings and military installations may have different, specific identification requirements. You should contact the facility directly to see what it will accept. South Carolina's Status The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has granted the state's request for an implementation extension to become REAL ID compliant. This extension means South Carolina's current, unexpired SC driver's licenses or identification cards will continue to be accepted as your identification to board domestic flights, enter secure federal buildings, and visit military installations through October 10, 2018. It is anticipated that this is the last extension request the state will have to submit. In the meantime, the SCDMV is working towards certification to issue REAL ID licenses and IDs. The SCDMV and State of South Carolina anticipate being fully compliant and issuing REAL ID licenses and IDs during the first quarter of 2018. October 1, 2020 Deadline When the state is certified compliant, your current, unexpired South Carolina driver's license or identification card may be used as your identification to board domestic flights, enter secure federal buildings, and visit military installations until October 1, 2020. On October 1, 2020¸ you must have a REAL ID license, ID, or another type of federally approved identification, such as a valid US Passport or military ID, to board a commercial flight or visit a federal building. If you’re planning to visit a military base, you’re encouraged to check with the individual base for what it will accept as valid identification.

    You have until October 2020: http://www.scdmvonline.com/-/driver-services/drivers-license/real-id You can start getting Real ID though at the DMV in the first quarter of 2018. There is a large Real ID kiosk at the airport right in the middle of the main passenger terminal with pamphlets for all of the info needed for the changeover.

    Flew out of GSP today for the first time since the renovations were complete and have to say I am very impressed with the final outcome. Loving the new retail/restaurant options. It's actually starting to look like a real airport now. Passenger traffic at the airport for November 2017 was 9.10% higher than November 2016. The number of available seats for February 2018 will be 23,645 compared to 21,788 for February 2017. An economy lot-terminal shuttle bus is slated to start early this year. Planning for the new and additional parking garage continues also. And regarding JetBlue which unfortunately isn't good at least when it comes to Boston: "Mr. David Edwards, President/CEO, met with jetBlue corporate executives in mid-October to discuss service out of GSP (Boston, JFK, Ft. Lauderdale, and Orlando). It was a productive meeting; however, GSP appears to be less of a priority for jetBlue compared to last year. In particular with Boston, jetBlue is focused on originating traffic from Boston. We have a 60% origination here at GSP versus a 40% origination out of Boston. Mr. Edwards connected with the Air Service Director at Boston Logan airport and will continue to have ongoing dialogue with him."

    I wouldn't have a problem with something the height, size, and scale of the ONE buildings especially with the site being on a higher elevation. However, I still don't want anything only 5-6 stories tall. For me, the buildings need to be at least ten stories tall.
