    Spartanburg Area Economic Developments

    Typical marketing gimmick that's supposed to impress people. Won't happen.

    New County Courthouse & City/County Government Center

    Thanks for the commentary and link but it all leaves me dumbfounded. Especially the Library Street stuff. Maybe once we have more information it will become clearer (at least to me!).

    Hub City Co-op

    I'm not a regular coop shopper but enjoy visiting and checking out their selections. A few observations: I feel the term "coop" is confusing to people. Some might believe the store is for members only. That's got to change. The coop's selections are limited. If you're accustomed to Ingles or Publix then you'll be underwhelmed with the coop. Prices are higher but not anymore than Whole Foods. or another specialty grocer. You're going to pay a little more for a gallon of milk. So what? I'm not privy to the salaries paid to management but worry they may be out of line. I hope I'm wrong on that. The store is clean and organized - just my style. I haven't been there on Sundays but wonder if Sunday hours are necessary? Finally, the coop is not a "supermarket". Its not going to have a vast selection. It was never intended to be that. Folks who come in looking for ten different variations of hamburger buns need to shop somewhere else. Thoughts?

    I'm not happy with this development but not surprised either.

    The Montgomery Building

    The glass really opens the place up. All these years all I've never seen the inside of the ground floors from the street.

    Do you think Avant Street will be curbed and guttered?

    United Community Plaza (S Pine & E Main Mixed Use)

    Definitely matching up with the architects renderings. Thanks!

    Old HBJ Lot

    That's a lot of money. Something BIG is going to be built.

    The Montgomery Building

    Sounds like a good plan to me. But what will SCDOT say?

    Downtown Projects & Developments

    I imagine most cities experience a similar pattern, albeit with higher (or lower) counts.

    Spartanburg Photo of the Day

    This is an impressive view. The road diet certainly helped the appearance. I can't wait for the West Main corridor to get cleaned up. Too many unsightly businesses!

    The Montgomery Building

    It would be nice if Church Street (US-221) thru traffic could bypass downtown somehow then Church could be narrowed. Pine to Henry and vice versa makes sense to me. Thoughts?

    Spartanburg Off-Topic

    I'm glad the city made the decision it did. There is merit to seeking an outsider. However, I've learned that outsiders typically jump from city to city. Chris, as was Ed, is devoted to this community and won't be seeking out another city for higher pay and prestige. Good luck to Greenville but I think Spartanburg made a wise choice.

    The Future of Spartanburg's Downtown Memorial Airport

    Asphalt is fine as long as the runway is COMPLETELY rebuilt which is the case at the airport. This runway had been resurfaced a few times in the past but never completely rebuilt.

    The Future of Spartanburg's Downtown Memorial Airport

    Due to heavy July rains the runway project has been delayed. The refurbished runway will be be ready until October. This news is unfortunate because the airport was expecting increased flights for the upcoming World Equestrian Games. Moreover, many companies use the airport and this delay will be an additional inconvenience for them.
