Innovation District mixed use development

Recommended Posts

Aside from whatever restructuring efforts may remain in bringing the two hospitals system together, Prisma Health has big plans in store for the Upstate in the form of a mixed-use Innovation District on nearly 70 acres of property near the Greenville Memorial campus. Prisma Health hopes the place will become a "destination" for area residents. 

The properties are owned by either Hughes Development Corp. or the Hughes Family Trust.

Little detail about the proposed development was given, but the effort could be similar in nature to the WestEdge "Discovery District" in Charleston, an emerging mixed-used development centered around the health-care and life sciences industry.

Containing residential and retail units and office and research space, WestEdge is near both MUSC and Roper St. Francis. It's currently home to a Publix, Jimmy John's, Hokkaido Sushi Bar and Grill, BKeDShoP, and Barre South, and is leasing residential units.

If Prisma's plan moves forward, the proposed Innovation District would join other notable destination developments located outside of downtown Greenville's main commercial corridor, most notably the project at County Square, Holland Park and The Enclave on Laurens Road, and Poe West in West Greenville.

I know there has been rumors of this for awhile. Im just glad that it will be in the City  and not in the County.

And as far as "not in Downtown" issue. The more mixed use development, the better. No matter where they are, it is better than what we have gotten in the past.
