Camperdown (Greenville News Building Site)

Recommended Posts

I anticipate the vacant lot at Main and Broad, the former USPS annex on Calvin, and perhaps even the liquor store property at Falls and Broad will become hot topics soon after the Greenville News block redevelopment. Each of these sites could easily support larger scale mixed-use developments.

The city's long-running success in maintaining the quality and increasing the quantity of attractive boutique shops and restaurants should be praised, and we should hope the bar will be raised with the completion of each new project. Don't settle for lower standards or you'll eventually be surrounded by mediocrity and lots of empty storefronts.

What about the movie theatre? Will it be a multiple screen venue? Wouldn't this be a perfect place for a true Imax?

 

IMax won't built another one that close to the one in Simpsonville.

6-8 screens was the last thing published.

So this will be known as "Camperdown" according to the demolition request on the Review Board agenda. I wish they had provided some renderings.

It's a name. They could call it the "My Little Pony Emporium" for all I care.

That sounds about right. The most expensive part of the project would probably be the parking.

Actually, it's the apartments which are slated to

cost $40 million. The parking garage is slated to

cost $18,750,000.00

That is not a surprise considering the number of units, and the amount of plumbing and cabinetry. The rental/lease rates will likely be among the most expensive in Greenville.

The DRB has set up a special meeting to review the site plan of this development at the end of this month. The developer must be itching to get this thing rolling. I wonder if we will see building designs being reviewed in February?

It seems as if they would be planning to try and build an office building for The News first? My guess would be the 4 story option at Falls Street. Then demolish the remainder of the site..?

That would be logical if that was what Greenville News was wanting to do. But who knows. But I will say this. The longer it takes for them to build. The longer it takes to make their money back. Remember. Time is money.

The latest DRB application indicates The Greenville News may fill 40,000 square feet in the new development. That seems equivalent to the condominium portion.
