In my opinion I think that Greenville SC should go more out of the mid range building range. Don't get me wrong Greenville SC an amazing city. But i would love to see taller buildings so when I come to the downtown area it would overwhelm me and others as well. But I think eventually Greenville will but i just would love to see it.! As far as growing I would love to see Greenville to have better transport around the city. But walkability is great right now but not everyone wants to walk. But I don't mind but there are the elderly and other people who could really use public transport. This rendering looks amazing,I would love to see this pattern more around Greenville. And with the One City Plaza I think it looks amazing and more areas would be amazing.!

For more than a year, the biggest question surrounding County Square has been which one of six developers would be chosen and what would be included in the redevelopment described by Greenville County officials as “game-changing” and “evolutionary.”
That question is now answered.

This may not be within the city of Detroit but it's only about 6-7 miles from the closest part of Detroit, plus obviously this is why I didn't post this in the Grand Rapids section...
It's just been recently announced that the Southgate Meijer store will be renovated this year, along with a couple other Detroit-area locations. This will be just the second renovation in it's existence, which leads me to this short history of this particular store:
Construction began in 1993 on the property of what had been a former drive-in theater and an adjoining four-screen indoor theater along the Fort Street S-Curve between Eureka and Pennsylvania Roads and in what was, at the time, a very run-down, rinky-dink part of Southgate. The store opened on August 30, 1994 with the exterior featuring various facade shapes (which that year helped introduce Meijer to Indiana residents), including a yellow pineapple-like structure and with the original layout of three restaurants serving two cafes (one of which was in the yellow pineapple structure), grocery aisles marked by red signs, gray carpet in the clothing section, a pharmacy at the back next to the grocery section, a photo lab next to the general merchandise entrance, a Michigan National Bank and a shoe repair place.
The first renovation, which took place in 2005-06, changed the interior to confirm to standards set by newer Meijer stores by moving the pharmacy to the location of the photo lab and adding a drive-up window to it, moving the pet department to the former pharmacy location, hardwood floors replacing the gray carpet, the removal of the restaurants and the pineapple cafe and a consolidation of the various electronic departments into one single location at the northeast corner of the sales floor. This is the interior those who come to this store see today, despite a Subway restaurant opening in 2013 in the pineapple and a couple name changes for the bank, which was later Chase and is now Huntington Bank.
And now, Meijer is preparing to give store 123 it's second do-over in it's life, which will likely place a new aisle running through and perpendicular to the grocery shelves and move the electronics department to the middle of the rear portion of the store like new Meijer stores being built now and what first debuted in 2015, again to introduce Meijer to a new state, that one being Wisconsin. According to a cashier I spoke to a couple days ago it's supposed to start sometime in March with no set completion date. I'll be sure to post plenty of detailed logs with photos included once the work begins. As of now, that cashier and this page are the only sources of this project.
I have also created a Facebook group on this project so you can more easily follow updates as I post them.
Expect a Sketchup soon just like how fellow UPer tamais6 used to do Sketchup renderings of Meijer renovation outcomes...
