CONSTRUCTION THREAD: The Point

Recommended Posts

A new entrance for REI has been cut out on the far left of the space. The Circuit City entrance is gone and is now a blank wall. A new interior wall has been built to separate the former Circuit City into two spaces - one for REI on the left and another space for a tenant to the right.

Since it's going to be an REI, I'm not sure how much it will look like one. I mean they usually have A LOT of glass implemented in their design, but I guess they typically use less in more suburban stores.

The REI going up in Greenville will pretty much look just like this one when complete: http://lh5.ggpht.com/_CR0s3pulNks/R3sfdAIh6SI/AAAAAAAABL8/94Oy5nyIcZw/SSL20445.JPG

REI progress. Can't wait for them to open!

Though they are a little difficult to see in this photo, there are three concrete pads similar to the ones anchoring the braces for the flying awning seen on the storefront shown in RestedTraveler's post of June 23.

I noticed those when I was by there, but didn't realize what they were. Thanks for the info. Guess we now know what the front of the store will look like. Excellent! :thumbsup: This is such a great addition to Greenville and South Carolina.

I agree! Perfect location for them too. :thumbsup:

I already stated what the store's exterior would look like on post #327 of this thread. Guess people just like to ignore it. :(

A building permit was issued yesterday for Genghis Grill valued at $225,000. Merolina Builders Inc. is the contractor. :thumbsup:

I have heard sometime in the Fall, but does anyone know an opening date for the new REI. I got a postcard in the mail last week that said they are now hiring, so it should be soon.

Got that postcard too...and applied. Not sure of an opening date though.

I think the appropriate local response is "Bout Dang Time!" (picture kids banging forks and knives on the table demanding dinner. Yeah, that's me.)

The exterior will be slightly different. Instead of the brick red dryvit shown in the above photos, the front of the new location at The Point is the dark gray corrugated metal. Looking nice when I was by there today.

Does anyone know when the Genghis Grill is going to open? I'm trying my hardest to wait patiently. It's not easy when your taste buds are screaming out for it. Constantly.

Not sure but the coming soon sign for the restaurant is now up on the side of the building. Also, Liberty Mutual has leased the two empty small shop spaces between Whole Foods Market and REI. Tenant upfit has started for that.
