  1. Agfa redevelopment

    I hope the City takes the opportunity to narrow McBee. There's no reason for any stretch of this street to be wider than 3 lanes. And really, 2 would be sufficient and more pedestrian friendly.
  2. Agfa redevelopment

    This is better than I expected as far as site plan is concerned. http://sc-greenville.civicplus.com/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Item/4351?fileID=17182
  3. BB&T building/lot redevelopment

    I've long wanted to see both of these sites redeveloped. I'm underwhelmed by what I've read thus far on the tower re-use. I'd like to see the entire triangle of land put to a better, more engaging use. The parking deck is horrendous. It will be interesting to see what sort of layout they propose for the other land. I'm not holding my breath. If the city really wants to connect Heritage Green and Main Street, a strong mixed-use project would have been necessary for the triangular site to drive foot traffic and build up the area as a destination. Maybe we'll see that in another 20 years when the site needs some TLC and re-invention. Sigh.
  4. GSP International

    I imagine there was probably a big uptick across the state for August thanks to the eclipse.
  5. Greenville Transit

    That's great news! More residential build up in the arts district would assist in ridership, I would think. Things like the proposed Senior living place on Augusta are good for the future and expansion of this experiment.
  6. Augusta Square

    Wow! That will be a nice addition!
  7. New Greenville developments

    Excellent to see! More of these types of developments will help aid in the development of legitimate mass transit in the future. Happy to also see the trail connection!
  8. Likely to see one for the AC Hotel, as well. I'm not sure the reach or overlap of work with the apartment building crane allowing for it to be shared.
  9. New Statues downtown...?

    I concur: ribbons is my favorite! I like the large scale, uniqueness, and artsy nature. It has the potential to be a place-maker. Hopefully the City is thinking along the same lines as all of us!

    Awesome! Looking forward to see how they finish out this development!
  11. Greenville Transit

    Interesting take. What areas do you suggest that it should serve? Not a lot of poorer areas around downtown are even within the city limits. In many ways this is the right step for Greenville, because if you want to have a viable transit system, you need to recruit those individuals who have the choice of using a car. If you can't get the general population to buy in, you're never going to have the support to grow the bus system or the trolley lines. Not to mention, The city needs people coming in and spending money in order to operate this free system. This is a non-PC answer in our sensitive society, but it's true and perhaps unfortunate.
  12. Homewood Suites - Main and Markley

    Excellent! Hopefully they put forth a stronger proposal.
  13. Greenville Annexations

    That is indeed an interesting figure without any context. I would think that density would be a factor. Chanticleer's large lots versus something like Verdae style density. I would think assessed value per acre would be a more useful number than a raw price per house. A side question: The city doesn't provide trash service to commercial properties does it? I would think commercial viability is different due to the scope of services provided by the city? And how that compares... idk?
  14. Camperdown (Greenville News Building Site)

    You make a good point!
  15. Camperdown (Greenville News Building Site)

    What throws me off is that is says "workshop" to discuss site plan. Maybe the footprint or approved massing/size of the condo/office building is changing? But workshop seems more interactive and implies something that the city has money and a say in (i.e. the public space). Otherwise, why not just submit a standard DRB application for consideration? Who knows. Just speculating and analyzing diction here...
