  1. Perhaps this will be paved before the bridges open, but it's not paved or open yet between the Double Stamp brewery and the Laurens Rd Bridge.
  2. Status updates from Dorothy Dowe's newsletter -
  3. Here's where the new trail goes, 2/3 mile of old railroad bed and nearly 1/3 mile of connector trails on both ends. Swamp Rabbit trail green line along Laurens Road
  4. Which project is going in next to Waffle House?
  5. They have to build the bridges long enough to meet requirements for disability access and road height clearance, so that's why the big price tag.
  6. I would guess no change to the trail under the bridge because one place stated that the existing walls wouldn't change.
  7. I'm surprised that they can't do something else to improve the existing pedestrian bridge and add a bridge over Church Street which will always be a challenge for pedestrians because of the 2-way street. They could use the building to get some height for road clearance, but of course would require something major on the other side.
  8. It's going to be a challenge to get dog owners to clean up after their pets - stepping off the trail is an exercise in danger. The likelihood of stepping in a 'bomb' is pretty high, as the dotted tracks show on the concrete. There are already 3 bag dispensers along the trail. But the rest of the park is coming together well for the opening...
  9. It shows on the county GIS imagery, probably from early this year (near 130 Halston Ave). Appears to be active construction.
  10. They are moving to a new location, yet to be disclosed. The previous location doesn't yet have a consistent high level of foot traffic, despite being close to Fluor Field.
  11. What if they relocated one of the old mill water towers and converted it into an observation deck - are they higher than the Unity Park proposed tower? For example https://nextpittsburgh.com/environment/north-parks-iconic-water-tower-finds-new-purpose-as-a-public-observation-site/
  12. Someone figured out that it'd be cheaper to buy one of these units than hotel rooms at $400+ per night.
  13. The proposed stadium would have been on the Swamp Rabbit Trail too. (of course at the current rate of buildout, it might be 30-40 years until it reaches there!)
  14. An interesting analysis of the vote Greenville County Council Got It All Wrong
  15. Can't wait until 'they' find something to protest and get upset about it.
  16. 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.
  17. So, the local arts community dares to disagree with the NYT review "Daniel Fish’s wide-awake, altogether wonderful production is thrilling!"?
  18. Auro bridge to be constructed over the next 4 days by the workers suspended from cables. https://www.facebook.com/cityofgreenvillesc/videos/616071882924031/
  19. Is that area still part of the flood plain? Note that the warehouse building that includes Southernside Brewing is elevated.
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. Yes, it's likely that they'll be able to create a tunnel using one or more of the existing bridge tunnels.
  23. Greenville County refuses to accept city's blame for mounting Swamp Rabbit Trail costs
  24. 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.
