  1. For those of you who like maps and aerial imagery: https://livingatlas2.arcgis.com/sentinel2explorer/ Not hi-res but appears very current.
  2. Now Wal Mart: https://www.goupstate.com/story/news/2021/10/19/walmart-announces-plans-build-spartanburg-county-distribution-center-create-400-jobs-2024/8519730002/
  3. Has anyone besides me noticed the appalling deterioration of SCDOT's "big green signs" on our interstates and highways/streets approaching the interstates? Peeling lettering is what concerns me. I've written SCDOT but have received only "canned" replies.
  4. I don't know what to make of this: NY Bitcoin company plans to 'mine' at Spartanburg's former LSC Communications plant https://www.goupstate.com/story/news/local/2021/10/06/greenidge-lsc-communications-plant-mine-bitcoin-spartanburg-sc/5831242001/
  5. I've driven by the old Coca Cola building on West Main and have seen a sign and vehicles for JDavis Construction Company. I don't know if JDavis has set up shop there or preparing the building for renovation. Anyone know?
  6. Probably not the ideal spot for this post but Rigsby's is nearly ready to open from what I can tell from driving by today. The redevelopment of the former co-op is impressive.
  7. I think you have a point but, if the store is managed, "shrinkage" the term that's used in the industry for theft, can be minimized. P-W is receiving significant incentives in the form of loans from the city and the nonprofit Mary Black Foundation to make this thing work. Let's hope it does.
  8. Well, there's Bon Haven that's now leasing, The Charles, with umpteen dozen apartments coming on line shortly, the development on Kennedy at Union, and the Robert Smalls village on Wofford Street. If I'm P-W, I'd be encouraged.
  9. Abandoned Hardees on West Main at Forest Street is being demolished. One bit of blight is being removed from one of our gateways.
  10. My "compromise" is (1) the elimination of both Main and Dunbar Streets adding more public space for Morgan Square and (2) improving the wayfaring so that motorists can better navigate themselves through the downtown area.
  11. About two decades ago there was a movement to build an interchange at Old Georgia Road and I-26 but NIMBYS made a lot of noise and the effort was dropped.
  12. It sounds like the strip shopping center adjust its space to accommodate a larger Piggly Wiggly. A much nicer store than Sav-a-lot, I hope.
  13. Road diet for Asheville Highway? That road is wide!
  14. Hey all, R-S has started this new thread because: the new infrastructure bill(s) working their way through Congress and the possibility this money will filter into Spartanburg. population growth that is already straining our existing and aging transportation infrastructure . Any transportation and infrastructure topic is welcome here.
