Heritage Green

Recommended Posts

I couldn't find a topic for Heritage Green, so here's a fresh one.

 

We've seen the campus essentially double in size in the past 10-15 years (approx?), bringing with it new offerings like the Museum & Gallery, Upcountry History Museum, and the Children's Museum of the Upstate. Now, they've gone through a complete campus branding, and instituted a comprehensive way-finding system-- everything from the vehicular level to the pedestrian. I snapped a few pictures yesterday while walking around the campus. This area is such an asset to the City and downtown. Redevelopment of the BB&T and AT&T buildings/blocks could really create further synergy in this corner of downtown. 

 

Here's a quick tour:

 

Pedestrian scaled campus map/directional signage:

I'd really like to see Greenville add a contemporary art museum. Raleigh has a fantastic small one. Maybe if Heritage Green expands eastward we could see that addition someday.

BJU to close Heritage Green Museum

Bob Jones University’s on-campus Museum & Gallery will close on Feb. 18 for a two-year renovation, and its Heritage Green location will close Feb. 4 permanently.

Under the direction of M&G Director Erin Jones, the museum will loan out as many of its more than 400 paintings as it can to museums, corporation headquarters and private homes of art enthusiasts during the closure. Paintings that aren’t loaned out will be placed in secured climate-controlled storage. That is expected to take the rest of the year.

In the city's proposed capital improvement plan for next year they have money going towards a cultural corridor urban trail that would connect Heritage Green with Main Street. Is there anything out there now that shows a proposed route for this? I would like to see it. This is a much needed connection.

We've heard this talked about, but I can't remember how many visuals we've actually seen of this connection. It needs to be well done. It would be great if it could be in conjunction with redevelopment along that stretch (Landmark parking garage, AT&T building/parking lot).

They just need to take out the far right lane from Bob Secours Arena up to Heritage Green. The pictures did look nice. They were in the last master plan that talked about the “nodes” of development downtown.
