    Our lawsuit against the city of Greenville is finally coming up on the docket.We will be arguing that RDV is an illegal zoning ordinance.At this time my brother and I are interested in hearing from other parties that are of the same opinion.I can be contacted through this forum, we are looking for some support.Fighting the city will not be easy for us,and any help would be greatly appreciated !

    Hope you all win too. Begs the question of how a Burger King can be allowed but a Starbucks can’t in the same area?

    That observation tower is meant to overlook the park, not the entire city of Greenville. It's the perfect height for what will be a near perfect park setting. 

    Sounds like a huge waste of taxpayer dollars to me. :dontknow: Now we know why no company has donated any money to the observation “boondoggle” tower. 

  3. How long until the five buyers walk away from this joke if they haven’t already? I’m surprised they haven’t taken legal action against the developer especially if there was any deposit money involved. Maybe the developer will decide to put a graveyard on site of all of the failed projects downtown instead. :D

    Somewhere in this thread there is a video that explains why and what trees were removed. They were invasive/non-native or of similar nature to warranty their removal.  They are adding back other trees that are more appropriate as well.

    Thanks. Too bad it’s gonna take 30 years for those trees to fully mature and provide adequate shade. It is what it is I guess. I still don’t how this park is costing $60 million either. I think the city got screwed over by Harper Corp. $10-$20 million is what I am seeing. Maybe I am missing something. :dontknow:

    You forgot to mention that whole city center with creative architecture and classical elements being built on 385 that is nothing but a cheap disney looking waste! :lol::rolleyes:

    I’m gonna take a wait and see approach on Bridgeway Station.

    No one will be calling them shade structures next July.    I love how these look (walked past them a few times already) and I love how little they obstruct any views  (in any direction, you can see across the "river" and through them and all around ) and seem to blend in so well with what is around them despite their modern appearance.  I mean that is quite a feat.   They should not be referred to as any kind of shelter (I asked the installers what they were and was told "picnic shelters")  in their current incantation, however. They wont shelter against sun or rain.   This is the south folks.  Maybe there will be more to these so there is more functionality added to their, again, really top notch, aesthetic. 

    Look at the bright side. At least they didn’t tear down any of the big trees on site that can provide shade. Oh wait…

  7. Meh…still not really impressed with this park so far. I thought there would be a lot more with $60 million being spent on it but I guess not. Honestly, I think the money should have gone to more important issues within the city instead like transit, affordable housing, sewer upgrades, litter control, paving roads, upgrading current parks, burying power lines, new landscaping, fixing street lights, etc. 

    I also find it pretty hilarious the city can find all of this money for a new park but can’t find any for Greenlink and a pedestrian bridge over Verdae Blvd. Priorities.

    This doesn't seem like a bad idea. I'm curious at what is driving it?

    The city wants to implement safety improvements due to the deadly car crash that happened with the woman walking on the sidewalk a few months ago. 

  9. What’s the future of the Old Cigar Warehouse? Well, now we know. Coming soon to the Old Cigar Warehouse space is New Realm Brewing. The new craft brewery + restaurant will feature a 5-barrel brewhouse, scratch restaurant, biergarten, dedicated stage + outdoor bar. New Realm plans to open in the fall of 2022.
