Union Bleachery mixed use development.


Recommended Posts

240 acres at the intersection of Old Buncombe Road and West Blue Ridge Drive, also known as State Highway 253, less than three miles from the city’s center. 

Warhaft would act as the overall master developer for what would be a planned development that, as proposed, would include a mix of office, retail, restaurant, hotel, townhouses and apartments. It would also include 55 acres of open space and up to 10 miles of new multiuse trails surrounding the project and connecting to the nearby Swamp Rabbit Trail.

Warhaft’s initial plans call for up to 3.5 million square-feet of office space, a 200-room hotel and up to 2,000 new apartment and townhouse units. He said he is in discussion with a major life sciences company that may locate on up to 500,000 square-feet within the development. 

The site itself would have its own high-density urban core and a secondary town-center style section with a proposed grocery store and ground-level retail.

Buildings closest to the edge of the development would be limited to 55 feet in height and step up closer to the development’s core, similar to how the Greenville County Square redevelopment project is designed.

It would include at least five main entrances on Brooks Avenue, Old Buncombe Road and State Highway 253, with at least two secondary entrances. The entire development would be constructed as a transit oriented development with bike and pedestrian access in mind. A boulevard would run throughout, creating another main thoroughfare for drivers to bypass the intersection of Old Buncombe Road and Highway 253 if needed.

But those plans are preliminary. At an initial public hearing in February, Warhaft told council members they would get multiple bites of the apple when it came to design approvals. Due to its massive scope, the project timeline could be as long as 20 years and include six to eight different phases, according to an initial site plan.

This concept fits into the city's latest  comprehensive growth plan (clusters of higher density development along major corridors with an emphasis on alternative transportation).  Greenville should someday be able to support a more effective public transit system.
