  1. I have been hoping one day with the Northside development on Howard Street that some of that could spill over to Hayne Street and Saxon/Arcadia/Fairforest (already seeing some revival with the condos and nice Dollar General) could become little urban villages further connecting Downtown to the Westside (reuse old buildings for little restaurants, shops, and cafes).
  2. Looking forward to these developments! Excuse my ignorance, but what does "temporary" mean for the FR8 Yard concept (other than I'm presuming the shipping containers would be replaced at some point)?
  3. The Shops at Westgate opened last Friday. Tenants are Starbucks, Men's Warehouse, and Sleep Number.
  4. Work continues at the future Fantasy Island site. Meanwhile... Construction near Spartanburg Medical Center happening. My guess is that it will be a new SunTrust bank location judging by some signs I saw.
  5. Work is underway at the future Family Dollar site.
  6. K BBQ appears to be a restaurant and catering service that will open its doors soon on W. Main Street next to Church's Chicken and across from QT, just west of Downtown. Check out their Facebook page for more information: https://www.facebook.com/KBBQSC. Also, Marco's Pizza will open shop soon in the former Starbucks at Hillcrest. Finally, the Lee's Famous Recipe building at Hillcrest has been sold...but to who?
  7. Since my last post, it looks like the former Funtasia exterior got a new coat of paint.
  8. After success with Dollar General building on Hayne Street and Blackstock Road, Arcadia will now also be getting a Family Dollar store. It will be located on Spring Street at the former Frankie's Grill site (across from Arcadia Elementary School and next to Signmasters and Roseart).
  9. http://www.goupstate.com/article/20140826/ARTICLES/140829721 Captain D's is looking to reenter Spartanburg County and the rest of the Upstate. It has been at least 20 years since Captain D's was last in Spartanburg (it was located where the westside Fuji now resides). Shoney's was next door in the building that recently housed a Mexican restaurant and, before that, a consignment store.
  10. I just found out today that the chicken restaurant at Henry Street will now be called Hub City Chicken & More. Unsure if this will be a completely new or different concept or almost the same as Lee's with same management and staff (but separated from Lee's corporate). I was told it should be open in the next two weeks.
  11. No one else has mentioned this: Stax Billy D's on Pine Street closed their doors for good on Monday, July 21 after 15 years. http://www.goupstate.com/article/20140722/ARTICLES/140729894?p=2&tc=pg
  12. This may belong in the Northside Developments forum, but Funtasia will come back as Fantasy Island this November. The previous owners Clyde and Melody McFadden closed the doors on the then-named Blessed Fun at Funtasia earlier this year after 10 years.
  13. I stopped at Fratello's in Roebuck earlier this week, and I've been told that the Hillcrest location will be its 2nd.
  14. Two Eastside updates: Dino's Subs & Seafood opened this week on Morgan Square. It reminds me of a somewhat more-expensive hybrid of Captain D's/Long John Silver's and WingStop/TNT Hot Wings. Throw in some Miami Subs. The other news is that Fratello's Pizza, Pasta and Subs is locating in the former Mexico Lindo on Fernwood-Glendale. No word yet on whether this is a second location or if they are moving out of their current Roebuck location.
  15. Westsider28, I talked again with someone at Motte & Sons (maybe one of their sons), and now they are planning on opening in August or September. I consistently check their Facebook page and website to no avail thus far.
