    Pendleton Street [between West End and West Greenville]

    Maybe, but I still hope it gets built. I like the description: "A historic brownstone inspired 10 unit townhome community.....Modern architecture and design combine timeless brick exterior, floor to ceiling aluminum windows....

    LEWIS PLAZA REDEVELOPMENT: Harris Teeter

    How is the parking? Doesn't seem like enough spots for such a large store.

    Better than anything I had expected for this location. Just awesome.

    New 160 Acre West End Park

    Can't agree more. A very large and open public gathering space is vital for the civic health of a city. Concerts, plays, festivals, speeches, rallies, races (bike and running), and debates. Falls Park and Cleveland Park are not big enough for these events. Hopefully the gathering hall will be large and adjacent to acres of open space (and with plenty of public restrooms). For me, this is the biggest possible added value of the new park.

    Greenville County Square

    I like how University Ridge will be cut into Thurston. Looking forward to seeing the Master Plan.

    Greenville County Square

    Density, with no surface parking lots, will be perfect for that location. Looks like a great start. We'll have the best county building in the state (region?). RocaPoint Partners/The Georgetown Company have a good track record? From Greenville News article: "The public health department, family court, Department of Motor Vehicles and state departments of juvenile justice and social services will be moved." Seems like county / developer want lower income users to go somewhere else? I wonder where they'll put these services? At least we'll be able to actually watch "our tax dollars at work" - literally.

    Traffic counting strip appear to have been set up in this area (Thurston/Howe/President Streets).

    Do you think the County Square project will directly compete with the Bridgeway Station project in Mauldin? I'm assuming Hughes did not win the County Square project and wants to fire off his development / capture tenants in Mauldin before the developer for County Square competes for the same business. If office space and hotel space is starting to get fat in Greenville's CBD then will the County Square project focus more on residential, restaurants, and small commercial tenants and businesses? Maybe there is a large corporate relocation rumor out there? Who wins the faceoff between County Square and Bridegeway Station, or are they playing in different leagues?

    100% agree. I can't read tea leaves, but I feel we're on borrowed time.

    Field Street Row

    I would add information to the marketing material about how it will be constructed. Special windows? ICF construction? The project sits 8 yards from active train tracks.

    Downtown Streetscaping

    https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0925857417306365?via%3Dihub Interesting findings about urban trees and stormwater runoff. Something Greenville could keep in mind as it continues future streetscape projects.

    Regardless, this will be the biggest announcement in years. I'm glad the county is taking their time and doing due diligence. This development will completely shape the city. Acreage equals to about 22 square blocks. A lot of development can fit inside that space.

    Proposal: 708 S. Main

    Like the height. Cool with the design, and like the ground level action; plus, I'm all for any building that will hide the ugly Link building . My concerns: We're at a completion date of probably 2020: "a late spring 2018 groundbreaking, with the first-floor retail portion completed within 12 months and five floors of residential completed in 18 months." "Late spring" usually means June, or later. Maybe longer, and a real possibility of the design be amended further due to budget issues.... "The 84-foot water feature fabricated by Florida-based BluWorld of Water will face River Street and is the tallest water feature the company has ever built," "A typical parking garage requires 375 square feet per vehicle, but the automated system uses less than 200 square feet per vehicle, according to Michael Beck of Park Plus. Ryan Astrup, principal of Park Plus, says this will be one of the largest systems of its type the company has installed."
