    I like the design, I like that the parking is on the back side of the buildings. I'd hope they'd put some commercial on the ground level, make it truly a walkable area. But oh well I guess.

    As I see it, yes for sure better than what's there now, but it needs to be taller. 3 or 4 stories. With the add-on of just the two, from street level it will look kind of... unfinished I think. I'd also love to see them put a commercial venue on the roof. With our amazing weather here, roof top bars, lounges, music venues, night clubs, restaurants should be the norm!

    Heard through the grapevine that the Social Security building on Magnolia is going to be redeveloped into a Residential / Commercial mixed use project. That's all I know. No details. Anyone have any insight that they can share? Sounds like it could be something very interesting.

    From WSPA today: https://www.wspa.com/news/spartanburg-leaders-move-forward-with-housing-development-plan/1319699687 Discussion about building 24 homes on land behind Barnet Park. With a price tag starting at $275,000. With at least four homes will be sold at a maximum of $195,000. To me this is great and the price points are right on. I'd even like to see them a bit higher!

    Looks like Tropical Grill is going to be building a location on Pine Street here in Spartanburg! Love it that we're getting more choices. http://www.goupstate.com/news/20180701/tropical-grille-opening-new-restaurant-in-spartanburg

    Noticed that the Morgan Square Pawn shop closed it's doors. Does anyone have any insight into what if anything is going on there. So happy to see that they closed. No hate to pawn shops, but they do make a stain on a down town street. On a more exciting note: A new business is coming to Main Street. The Spice and Tea Exchange will be opening at 135 W. Main!

    I could see a two to three story structure were there are walk ways (entry ways) from street level into the second floor and then stairs / walkways down into a shopping, eating and entertainment oasis. To your point, something that screams local, designed to reflect elements of railroads and mills, a living museum to Spartanburg's early roots and a lot of artifacts from the same. Could be a real destination.
