  1. 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’
  2. And Unity Park will officially open in Spring 2022. Not sure if that includes the tower.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. Oh dear... GVL county council votes to pull funding from Hispanic Alliance art exhibit
  6. When was the last time you were in the iStore in Greenville?
  7. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. In the meantime, here are some other photos-
  14. People From Up and Coming Cities
  15. The top one is at the corner of Harris and Augusta and the bottom one is at Bradshaw and Augusta.
  16. The name of this community is not well publicized but it's signed as "The Preserve at Logan Park"
  17. I'm glad the P&C came out with this investigation - I donated to their investigative fund. Conceptually I'd like to subscribe to Greenville News for purposes of funding a local watchdog, but I still don't understand their zany subscription price games.
  18. It took some time and it's not the "Jeremiah project", but land has become valuable enough to clean up a superfund site. The location is key to it all. https://www.greenvilleonline.com/story/news/local/2021/02/15/redevelopment-union-bleachery-mill-could-transform-part-greenville/6759666002/
  19. Greenville Co. Councilmembers partake in groundbreaking ceremony for new County Administration Building Dirt is being turned today!
  20. Hope springs eternal!
  21. That is why 'Towers' in downtown Greenville are capped at 196 feet
  22. I'm not as close to this business sector as in the past, but here are my impressions: 1. The additional data and infrastructure is a good thing for the area. Not an immediate benefit, but others may indirectly build on it in the future; citing its presence as a reason to proceed here with similar projects. 2. It's surprising that there is such a market, with the prevalence of Amazon and Azure cloud services, as well as the current presence of Immedion. I'm guessing redundancy / backup for the Atlanta / Alabama / Chattanooga market would be the biggest usage.
  23. From vague memory, I believe they used to refer to the area around Lewis Plaza as the Augusta Road area, either from an old name or casual association, although it is named Augusta Street today.
  24. That's a good point: lifetime totals need to be tracked but they are no longer useful to analyze situations at either local or national levels. This is an example of a realistic assessment of the South Carolina case: the number of Covid hospitalizations. Not the proverbial gunshot victim with antibodies, but real life people spending multiple days at the hospital with varying levels of gasping for breath. At least until the data reporting has been blocked for now.
  25. “As cases rise, deaths decline. The disconnect between case and death trends is striking,” I'll be looking forward to the deaths to continue their sharp decline. The current wave in new areas of the country are composed mostly of younger people. As it spreads, it is more likely to invade senior centers which will have an even larger death rate.
