The helicopter pad is probably for Hughes and/or the penthouse apartments on the top floor(s).

Who, in Greenville, could possibly need a helipad above their apartment? Does Hughes have his own helicopter? Why would he fly it to this building? Even if it's his appt, why would a developer from Greenville SC park a helicopter above it? Does Atlanta have anything like that? Nothing about the helipad part makes any sense. 

It's not April first but I'm feeling some tugs on my leg here. Calling BS until there's way more verifiable evidence.

Not sure about Atlanta. I believe Miami does though. Our little ole Greenville is growing up. :cry:

Not a done deal but not dead either. Basically still in the study phase. From GVL Today: 

Hughes Investments
The real estate developer (Hughes Investments) let us know that the 33-story downtown high-rise design we featured in a News Note yesterday is still fully conceptual. 

“Hughes Investments has never failed to construct what we have announced. We will only announce projects that we are fully committed to completing, not studies that are still under consideration. We appreciate when quality architects present us with interesting and exciting concepts such as this – these are compelling surveys of what could happen,” they said.

^^ I have to wonder if this was leaked in such a way as to be a trial balloon.

Maybe Danmire is Phil Hughes. :ph34r: :lol:

It also concludes by saying," while we might not see the highest building in SC downtown any time soon..."

Then goes into developments we will see in 2019.

So yep, purely conceptual. No current intent or active plan...pipedream.

Too bad! Something like that would be awesome.

That’s only what GVL Today thinks. Hughes was never quoted as saying that.

Doesn't matter since the project isn't actually planned

 

The project is still under consideration though. Hughes might be waiting on studies to come back to see if the project is viable or not. I guess I am a half glass full kind of guy. :lol:

What’s going on with the mixed use storage project on Rhett Street? No work has been done for months.

Just like Hughes high rise, I believe this project is dead.

I saw activity there yesterday. Not much work done, but there were people onsite.

Just stumbled across this.  A proposed 33 story building at Falls and River St by Hughes Investments.  

SGA was tasked with providing the schematic architectural design for a 33-story mixed-use high rise, located at a strategic intersection in Greenville, SC. The structure features a grocery store, parking garage, and apartments of varying sizes and price points. The uppermost roof serves as a heli-port, while a lower roof includes a rooftop pool. The building, when built, will be the tallest building in South Carolina.

^^ what does that mean Gman?

I have no idea what you’re talking about even though there were surveyors on and around the site today. :ph34r: Not saying it’s for this project but I am not saying it isn’t either. Oh and...
