Backhoes, bulldozers, etc arriving on site. Buildings being demolished. Construction now underway. More info: https://upstatebusinessjournal.com/developer-envisions-urban-village-for-former-dmv-site/

Same project? This has been sitting for a quite a long time, but great to see it moving forward. It's a really nice site plan.

Yep...same project. Long delay due to sewer line work needing to be done first by the city to increase capacity: https://greenvillejournal.com/2016/06/30/northpointe-laurens-village-get-key-approvals/

Is this still the developer that had... er... legal trouble? Curious to see whether that affects the project

I believe so. I imagine somebody else like the VP took over the helms of the company.

Yup, the reason why you had not seen much investment in that general area is because the sewer basin was at max capacity.

Looks like only the buildings were demolished. No site grading permits issued for project yet.

This project was originally proposed to the City about 4 years ago.

What is holding it up and other growth in the area is sewer capacity. The sewer basin drains beneath I385 near the interchange with Laurens. 

The pipe should have been expanded when I-385 was expanded in the early-2000s, but it wasn't. The only way to do it now is to drill it.

That's why you have not seen a lot of development in the basin lined by Laurens/Airport/I-385 even though its proximity to Downtown and the future SRT extension should be forcing it.

It's something the City needs to fix along with the trail expansion, so they can allow better redevelopment.

The sewer capacity expansion for this area has already been complete. It was done late last year: https://greenvillejournal.com/news/with-planned-trail-extension-and-sewer-expansion-looming-some-say-its-time-for-a-laurens-road-master-plan/

Farther along Laurens, construction of a sewer line that will open up the Laurens and Pleasantburg area for development is underway and should be completed within the next two or three months, said Marcus McCall, owner of McCall Capital. McCall Capital is installing the sewer line in conjunction with its Laurens Village development, a multi-use development on the former state Department of Motor Vehicles site. White said the city also has a million-dollar stormwater project planned near the old National Guard Armory and Fairway Ford.
