  1. Nice to see this building finally completed after all the years of waiting on the funding and design and construction. They should put public art in that circle that is at E. North and Coffee. A statute to Carroll Campbell would work well.
  2. It is a private-public partnership, which is exactly what built the Hyatt. The city owned the conference space and the atrium/outdoor plaza and the Hyatt owned the hotel itself. When the renovation to the Hyatt was done a few years back, the Hyatt bought the city's holdings, but that was 25-35 years after it was built. Bo Aughtry owns the front project parcel by the river. One of the Hughes brothers (I thought it was Bob) owns the back parcel of the project. Obviously Aughtry stands to gain from increased use of his Embassy property and by the Embassy annex that will be part of the p
  3. ^^ The Hyatt doesn't have the other spaces [42,000 SF] that the new center would provide. The Hyatt has 14,381 SF vs either 17,500SF or 25,000SF. Yes, the Embassy Suites would be the preferred hotel, that is why the owner is donating the land.
  4. include a 25,000-square-foot primary event space for corporate events and exhibitions, a 10,000-square-foot banquet hall, 8,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and a total of 24,000-square-feet of pre-function space. The bold part is what you are missing. The museums are already funded and they make the center a stronger destination for getting convention/conference business.
  5. Project components featured across the various renderings include a 25,000-square-foot primary event space for corporate events and exhibitions, a 10,000-square-foot banquet hall, 8,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and a total of 24,000-square-feet of pre-function space. An 80,000-square-foot museum and gallery featuring art from Bob Jones University and the current Greenville County Museum of Art has also long been part of the discussion.
  6. McClenaghan ribbon-cutting scheduled for Thursday This building which turns 100 this year is now back in the hands of Florence 1 schools after having been in the hands of a local gym and Carolinas' Hospital. Poynor will now be repurposed as it is being vacated by the move to McClenaghan.
  7. Hyatt Place Hotel at 128 E. Broad St. sold for $28,362,000 on 9/2/21. 13B E.Coffee Street and an adjoining lot that frontss Brown Street sold on 8/4/21 for $1,325,000
  8. Sept Planning Commission Agenda See page 15 in the link. 106 acre annexation at Howe Springs and Redbud Lane. Biggest annexation in awhile.
  9. Technically they didn't base it on that, and if a different LOCAL operator sought to backfill the space, they would need a new approval as well (as would a national one) . HOWEVER, the local residents were definitely more accepting of it because it was local, so it did have an impact.
  10. 2.97 acres for sale on Stone I guess we can officially cancelled the TH project that was proposed for this location. There is a an acre + across the street that is back on the market as well.
  11. I would say that it does, although the degree of which might be up for debate. One reason they were more amenable to approving this as opposed to the one by the Baseball stadium is that the zoning is not C-4 (as it is by the stadium) where the expectation is zero lot lines between buildings. I think it also helped that the existing convenience store had very wide 'curb access' that is being reduced to a fraction of that length with this project.
  12. The BZA board approved the Special Exception for the drive-thru, with conditions. I believe one of the conditions is that if a different operator (besides Bridge City) sought to operate there, they would need to re-apply. This is only for the drive-thru. I believe Planning Commission and BRD approvals are still required for the project as a whole.
