Excellent -- I'm ready to get the County out of that building... 

Has any work started on the Halton Road buildings?

Really dont think it is construction fencing. Looks to me they just put it up to mark where the auto place was and keep people from getting hurt or driving on it. Certainly no evidence of any construction starting anytime soon.

You’re getting your sites mixed up again. Lol. I’m not talking about the orange fencing that’s been up for months on the old Cobb Tire site. I’m talking about the gray fencing that went up two weeks ago where two large construction trailers currently sit. It’s further up University Ridge from the Cobb Tire site basically right where the main entrance for County Square is.

The area I marked in red below is where the construction trailers and new fencing are located:

Thans for the clarification. Isn't the county office buliding the firsr one to be constructed? Isn't going to go in the old Cobb tire area?

The amount of land they’re grading is a lot more than I was expecting. Definitely gonna be a big building.

Great to see this actually starting to happen.  This idea has been on the front or back burner for about 12 years at least.

I assume this will include a parking garage and surface parking?

No surface parking.  A six level 1,070 space parking garage is slated to be included and will be built behind or north of the new county office building where the family court building currently stands. Demolition and site grading hasn’t started on that yet. Here’s a good overlay map and site plan:

This is crazy! They've extended their current lease at least twice, and they've had notice to vacate since 2017. It's nice to see some actual reporting on local Greenville issues. Welcome to town, P&C!!

Could a section of the Greenville Convention Center be leased to the SCDMV? NewSpring will be moving out by the end of the year, ending a long lease with the Center. Could be some decent income for the city of Greenville. Maybe sell the state part of the building?

Anna Mitchell who wrote this story used to work for the Greenville News and has done the vast majority of the county square stories for them. Or at least did. Lol.
