  1. GSP International

    So back to the topic of GSP, I was checking out the Google Satellite view, and it shows the basic outlines completed. Is the garden going to be landside or airside? Also, what are the opinions of the feasibility of glass jetbridges. I've seen that Huntsville, AL now has them, and I think Amarillo TX has them as well. I think that they would work really well for GSP.

    I want to see a direct to Boston, Toronto, Denver, and LA. LA is pipe dream, but not out of the question. With as many magazines and articles that come up for how awesome Greenville is, why the hell you don't have more destinations is a loss for me. Maybe instead of the people pods, put the money aside for JetBlue or Air Canada Express / WestJet.

    Quick, send them up here NOW!
  4. Greenville Transit

    I think that if anything, this needs to be transformed to one of the VAL systems in use in France, similar to Rennes. Basically a very small light metro that is about 6 miles long. The idea of a glorified Morgantown PRT just doesn't sit well with me.

    There is a similar HT in Charlotte SouthPark near my office there. Starbucks and everything. If this is going to be similar then I'm not diametrically opposed to it.
  6. Augusta Road

    Maybe slightly offtopic, but I'm starting to wonder if HT is going to buy out a portion of the BiLo stores in the Greenville area. When I was last down there, the stores seemed to have really gone downhill, and as if there was no capex being spent on them any longer.

    I flew into and out of GSP last weekend and all I could say is wow. The airport finally looks like a real airport with the normal amenities that I've come to expect. Now if only JetBlue flew into GSP I'd be all set.

    My 2C in this... just found this browsing the net, I was in a CityTarget in Chicago, and that has the ability to fit in downtown. I don't think that a full size like what is on Woodruff would work downtown at all, but CityTarget and TargetExpress. Here is a link to the new CityTarget being built in Fenway I really think that would work nicely in the area of downtown. Maybe not the same size as the Fenway location but like Seattle's or Chicago's urban store.

    I flew into GSP today. Looks good, although a pain trying to navigate and figure out where everything went.
  10. Is Haywood the next McAlister?

    Yes and no... Look at Walmart on Pelham and Woodruff... just 10 minutes away from each other... Up here, we have Target the way Walmart is down there, just not to the same extent. The latest thing here is Target in malls, taking up defunct anchors. They're doing that in Canada too with Target taking over Zellers. So, yeah, it can be done, and I'd rather see it that way than another big box somewhere...
  11. Is Haywood the next McAlister?

    If anything were to happen at Haywood Mall, I'd like to see Sears become converted to a Target. We have two story stores here with the vermaport for two story use. I think that alone would spur more residential development in the Haywood area.

    Wow, but then again, when I lived on Cleveland St I just shopped at Publix anyways. BiLo just stopped taking care of their stores, and it shows. Is the Dollar General still in business at Lewis Plaza, or has that gone the way of the buffalo as well? Will Publix go where the health food store is / was in the back of the plaza? Sorry for the questions, but it's been almost 6 years since I've been back there.

    Is that the BiLo across from Tech? Or was there another one?
  14. CONSTRUCTION THREAD: The Bookends Phase II

    I like it... I've seen it before, over in Medford at Station landing they did the exact same thing. I've linked a Google Street View... Station Landing
