This turned out to be purty nice  :D.  I like the new sidewalks leading to the bridge/park.  With the completion of the Grand Bohemian there will be lots of foot traffic all around that whole vicinity of downtown.

Was there supposed to be a pool for the BOA building condos?  I thought I remember reading about it but haven't seen it in any photos.

Not really. Those units have access to the Deca pool though.

Has the large tract of land at  corner of E. Broad & Main across the street from Camperdown Plaza been designated for a new development?  I read something  a while back and wondered if something was brewing now.  TIA...

That is the location I would most prefer to see serious height (tallest and most beautiful building in Greenville).  Get the City involved to incorporate new offices and convert the current City Hall into residential with retail/restaurant space below.  Buy the properties along Broad from Main to Falls/Spring and fill/build it all up to Grill Marks (or better yet, incorporate their property into the new development).

Greenville’s textile history is the inspiration for Camperdown Plaza Public Art Project “Common Thread.” The sculptures are dynamic and playful with sound (soon!), light, and color. These re-imagined and oversized textile sculptures weave a story throughout the plaza of the legacy and importance of the textile industry in our community. See the sculpture and the inspiration: textile warp beams, spools, and weaving shuttles.

Visit Camperdown’s Facebook page to see pics of the sculptures.

^^ It seems like the Class A space gets taken but the Class B and C space sits and sits. Maybe we need to take a major Class B building and convert it into a different use altogether.   

I nominate the Landmark building. Renovate the exterior like you’ve seen done in other cities and convert the space to apartments and condos.

Not sure if the numbers work, but that would be a good one to do. The market for that amount/type of office space is clearly not there. It looks very dated and the architecture isn't the best. The views would be great as well.

Imagine the cost of the plumbing alone. :shok:

There are plenty of old office buildings that are converted and upgraded into Class A office space, with the entire building gutted and redone, or converted into residential.  For example, http://www.390madison.com is one of many in midtown Manhattan.  It looks really stunning and modern now, although it was built in the 1950s.  I'm surprised that this hasn't been done a while ago.

Plus upgrading or converting the Landmark Building could hopefully eliminate the swastika-like logo.

Here's another one...two, actually. Two 10-story dorms, Curry and Frazer, at Longwood University in Farmville, VA. Really nicely done.

These were totally gutted.

Thanks for sharing. That gives hope for something similar to happen to the Tower East building on North Main.
