There is A LOT going on with this project going off the site plan and unfortunately I was sworn not to share it so I will try my best to describe it. Everything described below (north, south, east, west) is looking towards the site from I-385 on Google maps. Speaking of Google Maps, you might want to have that open in another tab on satellite mode over the site to follow along more easily. By the way, everything listed below is ONLY phase ONE. :blink: :shok: 

 

-There will be a 40,000 square foot retail store constructed just to the east (facing from I-385) of the current Greenville Health System building. This retail space will be the west end cap of the proposed mixed use development. Directly in front of this retail store facing towards the east will be a centrally located courtyard and two 5,000 square foot retail spaces (one to the north and one to the south of the courtyard) exactly like you see in front of the Hollywood 20 cinema at Magnolia Park. To the north and the south of the 40,000 square foot retail store will be two parking lots. The one to the north will have 260 spaces while the one to the south will have 395 spaces. After this though, the project becomes drastically different from Magnolia Park thankfully. 

-Right next to the courtyard and two 5,000 square foot retail spaces on the east side (remember facing from I-385) are two newly constructed roads. One is facing north-south and the other is facing east-west. They both connect at a three way stop right next to the courtyard on the east side. This is where the east-west road ends on the west side. The north-south one starts at Holland Road and ends just to the southwest of the Charter building at Digital Place (road on google maps). The east-west road starts where the courtyard is on the east side of the 40,000 square foot retail building and goes eastbound to where it ends at a newly constructed round-a-bout to connect with Center Pointe Blvd (road on google maps) just west of Bridges Road. Both of these new roads will be two lanes with parallel parking, sidewalks, decorative lighting, benches, fountains, tree lined, brick work at intersections, pocket parks, etc. Pretty much like other lifestyle mixed use developments you see throughout the country (Market Common, Biltmore Park Town Square, Avalon, Birkdale Village, etc.)

-Along the east-west road from the new north-south road to almost the new round-a-bout just west of Bridges Road will be buildings like you see in the rendering from Upstate Business Journal. This is also the case along the already built Centerpointe Blvd from Charter heading north bound 75% of the way up to Holland Road. In the middle or heart of this is a four way intersection where the current Centerpointe Blvd crosses the new east-west road between Holland Road and the current round-a-bout next to the Charter building.

-At this four way intersection on the northwest side are a set of buildings. They start at the north-south road on the west side, run along the east-west road eastbound to the intersection then north along Centerpointe Blvd ending halfway up to Holland Road. This area will be home to 45,000 square feet of retail space, 140 residential units, 40,000 square foot cinema with 700 seats, and a 200 space parking lot. Part of the lot will actually be a garage built underneath (yes...underneath) the cinema. The cinema will be along the east-west road. All of the buildings are built up against the street with the parking in the back. The west side of the parking lot will connect with the new north-south road northeast of the new plaza in front of the 40,000 square foot retail store. 

-At this four way intersection on the southwest side are a set of buildings. Just like on the northwest side, they start at the north-south road on the west side, run along the east-west road eastbound to the intersection then south along Centerpointe Blvd through the Charter building and west bound along Digital Place back to the north-south road. This area will be home to 31,000 square feet of retail space, 44,000 square feet of office space, 135 residential units, a pocket park, and a 170 space parking lot.  On google maps, the office building will be constructed where there is currently a small grass lot to the southwest of the Charter building between the current parking lot and Digital Place. The north-south road will intersect with Digital Place right next to this office building on the west side. All of the buildings are built up against the street with the parking in the back. The west side of the parking lot will connect with the new north-south road southeast of the new plaza in front of the 40,000 square foot retail store. 

Had enough yet? No? Good. Because we're just getting started. :P 

-At this four way intersection on the southeast side (side with rendering from UBJ) are guess what? Yes...a set of buildings. They start just west of the new round-a-bout west of Bridges Road and run westbound along the east-west road to Centerpointe Blvd. From there they head south along Centerpointe Blvd to the current round-a-bout in front of the Charter building then east along Centerpointe Blvd. ending a little ways just past the current round-a-bout. Everything east of that back up to the the new round-a-bout along Centerpointe Blvd is parking on the north side. One lot is 280 spaces and the other is 100 spaces. This area will be home to 56,000 square feet of retail space, 146,000 square feet of office space, 200 room hotel, and a 70 space parking garage underneath the office space. Some of the office space will be built along the east-west road while other portions of it will be built along the north side of Centerpointe Blvd just east of the current round-a-bout. 

-At this four way intersection on the northeast side are a set of buildings. They start at the new round-a-bout and run westbound along the east-west road to Centerpointe Blvd. From there, they head north along Centerpointe Blvd ending halfway up to Holland Road. This area will be home to 72,000 square feet of retail space, 236 residential units, and 185 room hotel. Parking in the back with three separate lots. 180, 200, and 180 spaces each. The hotel will be right next to the round-a-bout. Right next to this hotel on the west side and before the next building is another north-south road that will be constructed. This road will run from the east-west road up to Holland Road. The difference between this and the other roads is that there will be grass lawn between the lanes along the entire length and a 4,000 square foot retail building in the middle of it. Future phases and parking on the east and west sides of this road. 

-Between two of the northeast parking lots closest to the four way intersection and Holland Road is slated to be a 30,000-50,000 grocery store and 15,000 square feet of retail space. Parking to the east of this structure with 260 spaces and parking to the west of this structure with 525 spaces. 

-Between the current round-a-bount next to the Charter building on the east side and I-385 will be an amphitheater. Right next to that on the east side will be new pedestrian bridge (swamp rabbit trail) crossing I-385 that connects with the amphitheater. Right next to the pedestrian bridge on the east side will be a public park that runs to Bridges Road. 

-Five future phases along Holland and Bridges Roads including the former Bloom grocery store. Possibility of future development where parking lots will go also. 

 

-Overall, it looks like a very large and fantastic development. There are a few other things on the site plan I didn't describe (more pocket parks, more small stand alone retail buildings within the development, fountain locations, other roads, etc) because it would be too much to explain. If it gets built entirely and with the current plan we are in for a real treat. If you have any questions because I know this is probably confusing as hell (tells you just how massive it is) just ask.

Wow, gman thanks for the leg work! Sounds pretty cool. This is kinda like what I envision for the county square site, ultra dense and urban, but with more height. 

So are the 5 future phases similar? How many acres total?

The future phases aren't as large as phase one in terms of land size and are blank on the site plan in terms of what is planned. All five future phases combined probably equal half the size of phase one. These future phases are basically large parcels located along Holland and Bridges Roads. One of these parcels is the former Bloom grocery store site. The first phase is a little over 40 acres. Not sure the size of the entire project in terms of acres. 

If the project is built according to plan, it will definitely be ultra dense and urban. No question about it. The only portion of phase one I would consider not to be this is the grocery store on the north end of the site along Holland Road. Everything else though is built out very much like Market Common, Birkdale Village, Avalon, Biltmore Park Town Square, etc. 

While there is a lot of parking too, almost all of it (minus the grocery store) is located behind the buildings that are located along the east-west road and Centerpointe Blvd going north-south. The parking for the 40,000 square foot retail store on the west end cap of the development is located on the north and south sides of it.

Roads...roads....the connecting roads are narrow/winding two lane. All the traffic will not funnel to this project from 385. Bridges Rd, Holland (southern end from Bridges) and Bethel need Improvements...Butler Rd from 385 to Woodruff Rd needs widening. This sounds like a good project...hope plans include road improvements in the vicinity as it's not good now. Did not include Tanner Rd...it will experience more traffic as well!
