  1. Sprawl? Density of Greenville County is 574 per mile, Meck County is 1,755. Most southern cities/counties have sprawl and little appetite to stop it, especially in SC.
  2. Good, it appears you are more interested in trying to be funny, I’m sure a forum exist for that. Thanks, but don’t worry about me. Now, if you don’t want to talk about Greenville, why are you on here? Best post I have seen from you
  3. Good question LOL, are you here to talk about development?
  4. You said Greenville was like Portland, tell us why.
  5. At some point, you moton, and others should talk more about your city. If it’s great, post why. And, if you are really interested in development and improving QOL, it is critical to assess where you are and what could be improved. Sadly, maybe that should be added to the list.
  6. Tell your friend, it’s a 50/50 call about where the thread should be, some of it is development related. But, if you read the post, there is a lot about Greenville.
  7. Here’s a question, why do you talk about me instead of your city? If there are great qualities, share them.
  8. That’s a fair point, but many in Greenville have claimed that Greenville has a higher QOL than Charlotte, so it’s why I started there. Charlotte would obviously trail ATL in a lot of things....would love to have that aquarium here. But, some things aren’t as size driven. An example is job recruitment, Greenville and SC need to recruit more higher quality jobs. Greenville and Columbia would compare equally on most levels, Charleston is a different level.
  9. Since everyone can learn from others, it’s interesting to look at qualities of other larger cities that Greenville may want to emulate. I am familiar with Charlotte and Greenville, so: QOL factors The arts: Greenville has a nice performing arts facility in the Peace Center (although the interior could use work) but, beyond that, the depth isn’t there. It would be nice to have the Peace Center finished out like Belk and more theaters catering to various levels of shows. Charlotte has layers of performing venues to accommodate shows from broadway to local groups. From the visual art
  10. According to business journal, Ally will lease the entire building. Time for another tower to start.
  11. 100% right....building higher will cost more and demand higher rents. If the rental amounts won’t support the higher cost, why build it. It’s the same reason you don’t see a Hudson Yards Building in Charlotte, the rents won’t support that type of building. And, I’m not sure Greenville needs it. A cluster of 10-15 story buildings work well into a skyline v one large 40 story just to say “we have the tallest building in SC”. Now, I also hate 4-5 story brick office buildings, so there is a balance. The other issue worth noting is that it’s nice to see tenants move around in market, it
  12. I’m not sure I would say nothing to be concerned with. If downtown tenants are simply relocating, it doesn’t help other than to have cheaper backfill space to offer. One is showing space available. Where did Nelson Mullins move from? https://www.onegreenville.com/office.php
  13. The state of SC could definitely do more to keep and attract a workforce in Greenville, Columbia and Charleston. But, the focus has traditionally been on manufacturing, which isn’t bad....I would love to have BMW Plant Spartanburg in Charlotte. However, I think they need to do more in attracting and keeping companies in SC. State Street was the largest bank in SC and moved the HQ to a small town in Florida....no idea why that happened. Charlotte, Nashville, Raleigh, Atlanta all have great momentum in attracting people, Charlotte attracts 60k people annually. Flipping the switch and a
  14. It is a great time for the state of SC to recruit non-manufacturing businesses across the state whether its Charleston, Greenville, Columbia or Ft Mill/Rock Hill. the traditional challenge facing SC is the ability to produce a deep workforce that companies will look for when relocating. A lot of college grads head out of state to places like Charlotte, Atlanta, Nashville etc.... The #1 destination for grads of the Moore School of Business at USC is Charlotte. Another negative is the narrow scope of direct flights offered. QOL is a tricky measure, it means so many different things to d
