  1. I haven't studied rents downtown, but imagine that rents are already sky high relative to the Sprawlurbs. Anything operating downtown must already have amazing profit margins to stay afloat. For example Table 301 had some cool concept restaurants that couldn't make it in an environment with too high a percentage of teetotalers.
  2. So, the local arts community dares to disagree with the NYT review "Daniel Fish’s wide-awake, altogether wonderful production is thrilling!"?
  3. Auro bridge to be constructed over the next 4 days by the workers suspended from cables. https://www.facebook.com/cityofgreenvillesc/videos/616071882924031/
  4. Is that area still part of the flood plain? Note that the warehouse building that includes Southernside Brewing is elevated.
  5. While not Google Maps, here's some updated imagery from some of downtown - https://www.mapillary.com/app/?lat=34.84353173712471&lng=-82.40555567089842&z=14.193401210095013&panos=true&dateFrom=2020-11-03&pKey=323097099189374&x=0.33908079641864997&y=0.39016138061870465&zoom=0
  6. I agree that the trail to Verdae is the most critical. I still see the Verdae bridge as critical to be scheduled soon after - using the ICAR parking garage as a trailhead, extending the line to the Golden Strip area, etc.
  7. Yes, it's likely that they'll be able to create a tunnel using one or more of the existing bridge tunnels.
  8. Greenville County refuses to accept city's blame for mounting Swamp Rabbit Trail costs
  9. The other rumor going around is that they were too late ordering to be able to obtain that quantity of fireworks, which are temporarily in short supply.
  10. This has been flogged to death, but now even more have pledged financial support. Community Foundation of Greenville announces $15,000 in grants to Hispanic Alliance for ‘Wings of the City’
  11. And Unity Park will officially open in Spring 2022. Not sure if that includes the tower.
  12. From what I can gather: Completion date slipped Dec 2022. Reason: Covid set other priorities City is uncomfortable with the schedule slip and lack of detail on bridge costs by now. May or may not be able to open partial trail as it completes, pending actual bridge schedules. My opinion only- Disappointed that the project could not get a higher priority by now considering the surrounding area investments by businesses. Construction bids and design should have been able to proceed during Covid, pending coordination by the County. Bridges are more complicated and expensive than first estimate, especially the Laurens Rd overpass.
  13. The good thing is that they have plenty of lead time for next year's Artisphere, and the Artisphere juror process can include a limit on the maximum amount of body parts that will be allowed into the show. Here's another Op Ed point of view: Op Ed: Look up — then stand up — for the Wings of the City tonight at County Council
  14. Oh dear... GVL county council votes to pull funding from Hispanic Alliance art exhibit
  15. When was the last time you were in the iStore in Greenville?
  16. We have the reverse problem of Greensboro, where they wonder "why do people always try to call us Greenboro?"

    The West End

    This is because discrimination against the unvaccinated is not allowed, and there's no way to easily check who's fully vaccinated anyway.
  18. I doubt it is based on % vaccinated or daily infection rates, but based more on the percentage who have had an opportunity to be vaccinated by now. Waiting longer will result in progressively smaller increases. On everything else - whether or not it's based on actual data, it's a good move politically.
  19. The old Greenville Memorial Auditorium space would barely hold a soccer field with only space for a few spectators.

    The West End

    The 1021 S Main St. West End Coffee has become the Crafty Cat Brewing co. The former West End Coffee on S Markley St is now PMC Commercial Interiors. And West End Coffee retail is still open by appointment on Fairforest Way.
  21. Yes from a caption: This sign is approx 1177 miles from Duluth, Minn. It is painted on the side of a building in Greenville, SC. In 2007 Greenville and other parts of the upstate through movie magic became Duluth, Minn. in ”Leatherheads", a football comedy set in the 1920’s. Starring George Clooney, Renee Zellweger, and John Krasinski.
  22. In the meantime, here are some other photos-

  24. The top one is at the corner of Harris and Augusta and the bottom one is at Bradshaw and Augusta.
