    The State of Downtown Retail

    The Caviar & Bananas in Charleston were pretty cool, too. Nice to see C&B, Husk, and Toast branching into Greenville. All were favorites of mine in Chucktown. Eggs Meeting Street from Toast is to die for.

    Denver: Downtown Infill Projects

    Just a reminder, folks...this board on UP is largely inactive because everything is being covered splendidly by Denver Infill Blog and Denver Urbanism Blog. If you are browsing around UP and want to see what's going on in Denver, that's the place for all of the info.

    Stone Avenue at Main Street mixed use project.

    Nice infill and another good residential alternative, just a short walk from downtown. I like it. It reminds me quite a bit of much of what's going up in LoDo near Union Station out here.

    350 N. Main Street hotel.

    Egads! That's what ended up on that spot? SMH

    CONSTRUCTION THREAD: ONE Greenville (Main @ Washington)

    Two of my favorite pieces of Charleston, coming to Greenville. The more al-fresco dining, the better! Love it!

    Residence Inn/ Spring Hill Suites - Washington And Spring

    I don't suspect that to be the case at all. I suspect they're merely trying to fit better with the look and feel of DTGVL. Hello! :-P Me too.

    Rails to Trails

    Where there's a will, there's a way. If there's not enough room, just build it out over the water. Look at what they've done in Tampa and Austin, for example. Tampa: Austin:

    CONSTRUCTION THREAD: Riverplace

    Nice to see RiverPlace finally being rounded out. SO MUCH has changed since I was last in Greenville.

    Greenville Photo of the Day

    Aside from the red firebird, I really kinda dig this photo.

    Greenville needs a Tilted Kilt...or maybe a Tír na nÓg ;-)

    Greenville Photo of the Day

    Neat...although at first I thought it was a giant Sodastream! :-)

    CONSTRUCTION THREAD: ONE Greenville (Main @ Washington)

    Wow...that's, er, uh, unique. I want to like it, but I'm honestly not sure how I feel about it from just seeing the photos. It just kinda clashes with everything around it. I like this one ... kudos to whomever came up with this idea. Whoa...I am not a fan of the lack of grass. I had hoped there'd still be at least a few more living green things on this plaza to soften it. It's all way too harsh.

    The Gateway Site

    Why not just put a huge parking garage surrounded by/clad in ground-floor retail/restaurant and upper level apartment/condo on this site and then replace the surface parking around the Bi-Lo Center with more of the same (retail and restaurant space facing N. Church Street and the Bi-Lo Center both with low-rise apartment/condo above it)? Just a thought.

    Rivers Edge

    I prefer the original plan - right up along side River Street...more urban feel to River Street that way and room for something else to be put next-door on Broad: Meh...they took a good thing and ruined it, in my humble opinion...all for the sake of another plaza and some additional rooms: If they want some outdoor space, why not just set the building back from River and Broad a bit and put outdoor space along River Street while still preserving the original elevation and orientation on the property?
