This is better than I expected as far as site plan is concerned.

Aren’t the parking spaces on McBee street the wrong way? Unless it’s gonna be back in spaces (which I dislike). Please don’t let the city start doing back in street parking

Im guessing it was a mistake.

I dunno it’s in all the renderings at the end. Massing looks alright. Would argue that along Beattie Place and Academy is where developers should try and go taller, away from Main street and the West End.

I hope the City takes the opportunity to narrow McBee. There's no reason for any stretch of this street to be wider than 3 lanes. And really, 2 would be sufficient and more pedestrian friendly.

What was the point of repaving it within the past week if they're just going to narrow it soon?

DRB approved the site plan but with some changes, mainly to make the Academy/Washington and Academy/McBee corners more promenient and visually appealing, and to widen the setback from the three streets by an additional 2 feet. 

They Do want to make the angle parking on McBee to be reverse in, just as shown.

Not bad on the massing and layout but needs more height IMO.

I agree with man, some height here would have been nice. Greenville is surely the capitol of the U.S. for buildings less than 8 stories.

Not sure I understand; so the placement and number of buildings have been approved but not the architecture, right? I mean, it looks like a seven year old drew those on a napkin.

Yeah, some height, anywhere in Greenville would be nice!
