Recommended Posts

Lots of construction happening in the Patewood area for GHS and St. Francis. In the next 5 years, this are is going to look very different. A photo of some of the construction.

I think there were some earlier photos of the construction of the buildings across the road in another thread. Would be cool if we could merge those posts into this thread, too. :thumbsup:

Then across the street where they are building those two identical looking buildings, thats going to be offices and a surgical center and supposedly their going to build a life center where that last big parcel of land is left across the street from the short stay hospital.

Whats the "life center" g-man? Is it going on the piece of land by Regions Bank?

The life center is a huge health and fitness center, probably the largest in Greenville County. They have one right across the street from the main hospital and yes it is supposedly going on the land by Regions Bank from what my mom said seeing how she goes to the life center and works at GHS.

I still call it the "fortress" because of so many nice round towers. This is the type of building design I love to see - large space in a floorplan that is not square. :)

Has anyone noticed the added height to the towers? I wonder if there will be some kind of awesome lighting scheme to make them stand out and accent the building? If someone could get a shot from near the Pelham Road-Patewood Road intersection that would be excellent! You could even include the other buildings across Patewood Road. Another nice angle is from the Roper Mountain Road Extension side. I will try and take more photos soon, but it isn't always convenient. That whole area is dramatically changing into an urban center outside of downtown! :D

It also makes great impact from 385. When you're headed into town and cross under the Patewood bridge, with this on the right, and the Hilton and other hotels rising up from the hillside ahead. Lots of lights and development. Great view! Looks a little "mid-townish"! :thumbsup:

Some photos from this afternoon...

Work is almost finished on Saint Francis Women's & Family Hospital on Patewood Road (sorry for posting this here, but there doesn't seem to be a separate thread and I also believe GHS has agreed to purchase this property from Saint Francis anyway:

Construction is wrapping up on the East Side of Patewood of the GHS Patewood Medical Campus:

I didn't get any shots of the construction on the West Side of Patewood, but it's coming right along!

Driving down 385 last night, the Patewood/Haywood area is looking great. The additional height of this GHS building, along with Earth Tech, Hilton, Amersuites has created a a nice mini midtown skyline. Looking great! :thumbsup:

It really does. Thanks, gsupstate! And if you think that looks great, you should definitely see the other side, and a broader view of the entire Patewood medical complex. It is quite unbelieveable if you remember the days when nothing was there at all. :w00t:

Is anyone noticing the 880-foot underground tunnel they are building under Patewood Drive? It is suppose to connect the medical offices with the acute care hospital. I think they will be closing the road for awhile to connect both sides. Traffic will be detoured through the campus I heard.

Yes, I noticed the story on WYFF 4 yesterday evening and this morning. Looks pretty impressive. :shades:

I am also kind of anxious to see the Eastside Life Center they plan to build on the campus.

Does anyone know if there are any plans to upgrade the Patewood Drive/Enterprise Boulevard/Frontage Road intersection? It is bad having no turn signals to make left turns onto Patewood or into the medical complexes. Frontage Road lacks a left turn lane to turn onto Patewood towards East Orchard Park and Pelham.

I remember when they first started building this, you could tell the foundation was dug very deep, two to three levels underground. Maybe the tunnel will have a people mover! Just dreaming, but could be cool! :D

I assume the tunnel has to be deep enough in order to support the roadway above. I doubt anyone would want a sinkhole to form.

Those people movers or moving sidewalks would be nice elsewhere in Greenville, though I do not know who would need it the most.
