    Haywood Rd Redevelopment

    Single family homes does not make much sense on that strip that's goes all the way to Brendon. Multifamily or commercial makes way more sense.

    Haywood Rd Redevelopment

    I like the infill. Just two things: Too much hardy plank in the design (DRB will see this anyway) and they need to have a connection into the Beacon Ridge apartment entrance on the west side. There is no excuse not to have an internal connection. Would allow those residents to go straight to the Sphinx without having to go on Pelham and provide an extra exit.

    Pleasantburg Drive Corridor

    Good, but I hope that comes with safety improvements for crossing Pleasantburg for them to get to the Publix.

    The empty building next to SCDOT?

    Scott Towers highrise to be demolished?

    Unless they got a Vested Rights extension. And they technically have until end of business tomorrow to ask for it unless they already applied for building permit.
  6. Fortunately, City leaders have a bigger backbone. Would also like to see one of the lanes become a dedicated bus lane eventually.

    Camperdown (Greenville News Building Site)

    Doubt they last long as apartments. They will be turned into condos within 10 years. Mark my words...

    Both intersections where the road splits would have to be reengineered. Still plenty of options if you need to go through downtown.

    GSP International

    Would be easier for those coming back today from the BC game.....

    Not necessarily easy to tell in black and white photos, but looks like it.

    Master Plan Results

    First, improving the grid network helps. The plan calls for many connections to improve the grid system, especially for Church St. Second, traffic finds a way (Jurassic Park pun). Look at Atlanta when the section of I85 collapsed. People were calling for gridlock everywhere and it ended up not being nearly as bad as they thought. Why? People did not make unnecessary trips and found ways around that they did not previously use. Making them two-way essentially undos some of the wrongs of the 1960s-1970s. Church, Academy, Pete Hollis plowing through neighborhoods really hurt the livability of downtown. It's time to fix it.

    Returning College to a two-way would probably be hated by SCDOT, but I like the idea. Lowering Church back to ground level would right a wrong. I really like the roundabout idea at Rutherford and Pete Hollis.

    CU-ICAR/Millennium Campus

    If I remember right Neighborhood I is completed, so this new construction should start a new one.

    CU-ICAR/Millennium Campus

    ICAR was never meant to be a 10 or 20 year build out. It's a true satellite campus. Clemson wasn't built over night and neither will ICAR.
