The Lofts at Stone and Rowley.

32 posts in this topic

JSD designed the Bookends so maybe this will be fairly nice looking. I like how the building will be up against the street with parking in the back. Residential and commercial space is planned. Max height of structure is 56 feet 4 inches above Stone Avenue street level. Looking forward to some renderings: http://www.greenvillesc.gov/PlanningZoning/PlanningApplications/Applications/2013/AUGUST/PlanningCommission/08-08-2013/Z-15-2013-CornerofStoneAvenueandRowleyStreet.pdf This is the developer: http://www.bluewallre.com/

Excellent news. I drive by there a couple times a week and have been waiting for something to happen. That white building is literally falling apart.

 

So 56 feet would probably be about 4 or 5 floors, right?

With new urban development coming to Stone, I think it seems like a logical candidate for utility line burial. Maybe we will even see the city push its street diet plans..? This is great to see!

They would probably have to move US276 to do that. Not that easy.

Does this mean phase 3 of ONE is going to be announced soon? :D

What does the video or post have to do with anything related to the topic?

 

 

I think this is great for the area and I really wish Target would consider the Main and Stone street intersection. Maybe this project will draw more people's attention to the area.

I like these a lot. I'd love to see Stone lined with developments like these. Unfortunately, NIMBY resistance is very strong in that area.

What do you base that statement on?  The recent Gville News article, IMO, did not indicate as much.  There is/was a lot of support for the Master Plan that fits nicely with this project.

I don't see the relevancy of a 24 hour restaurant with a bad reputation for crime, compares to a largely residential project. Apple and Orange.

But a fantastic reputation for hash browns - scattered smothered covered chunked capped and diced

The Greenville News article mentioned "concerns" from some residents...of course.

 

It has been my long-time observation that news media always present a 'conflict' situation whenever possible.  Just as the two or three people that opposed the ONE project on height grounds got 50% of the coverage, even though 99% of the merchants/property owners/residents had no problem with it.  Conflict gets readers/listeners/viewers, harmony doesn't.  Plus, having 'concerns' is different than having a 'problem'.  A lack of info. can also be the source of 'concerns', which can be resolved with simply providing answers to their questions.   That was my take on that article, at least.

Absolutely. That's always a fun game with The Greenville News. No matter what the article is about, they HAVE to find the complainers. It could be about a fireman saving a cat from a tree, and they would focus on the guy complaining that it was a waste of taxpayer money.

I thought this was approved with the stipulation that they needed to provide additional parking analysis and alternatives... does that mean that they did this and received final approval?

Going, going, gone. "Under contract" has been removed from the available sign. :(

It is just due to a notice that the building is being condemned and the city is tearing it down... not due to potential construction.
