Villagio Verde Called Off

73 posts in this topic

I jut got word that the Villagio Verde project has been called off for the site along Villa Rd. and I-385 that is was planned for. BUT, the developer still wants to do a project of that concept but is looking for a new site that will interest possible retail users more.

Also, signs should go up soon for a new project on that Villagio Verde site. Two "seven story very high end condo buildings" are planned. Much of the site will remain natural.

As much as I feel that this project would have done volumes for that area, I had two main concerns, one being would an italian village be completely out of place in that area, and the second being traffic concerns. In my opinion, it will only be a matter of time before someone takes that 90 degree turn on Villa just a little too fast and goes airborne into I-385. The developers I think are wise to do Villagio Verdae somewhere near Montebello, or at the very least that general area of Greenville. The one thing that I can say though, imagine two seven story buildings up on that hill, and being able to see them from 85. I think that our dream of an city that can be seen from 85 is starting to come to fruition.

I DO like the idea of two seven stories condo buildings and I'm glad that Villagio Verde or something like it will still happen somewhere... I hope that when you say "remain natural" that it is a nice manicured natural and not an overgrown forest :whistling:

I think that means that many of the trees in place will remain, all underbrush in gone.

Glad to see the Villagio Verde project is still in the works. Twin condo towers for this spot seems like a better use than retail. Hard spot to get into for high traffic retail, but perfect spot for condos. Great view. :thumbsup:

Villagio wasn't just retail is was condos and office space as well.

I think this is an excellent idea what their doing with this site. Moving Villagio Verde to a better site and putting up two seven story condos here sounds great. Hopefully, the design of the condos look nice. :thumbsup:

What company is developing the twin condo towers?

Sounds like a win-win all the way around. I think retail would have struggled there. Maybe the project will move closer to DT. Let us know what you hear btoy, and thanks for the news.

I wish Villagio Verde could go somewhere adjacent to downtown and we could start our very own "Little Italy." :thumbsup:

Yea, me too. I suppose we could really start to call it "mid town" then. :lol:

:dontknow: I don't get it. Why not call it midtown? That is where it is, afterall. And not far away, Brick City Grille is finally open, I believe. There is a nice new health spa going into the space next to this shopping center as well. That whole midtown area has changed dramatically over the past few years. :shades:

There could be a development coming out that will be called Midtown Greenville. :whistling:

I was actually thinking it would be out around Haywood Road and was hoping for something more like Atlantic Station...but if this "midtown" development is downtown and a highrise, then I'll take that, too. :lol:

Btoy said that two seven story condo buildings are going to go up at the Villagio Verde site unless you already know about that one. That's the only good sized development going on in midtown right now, unless there is another one i'm not aware of either.

I wonder how long it will take these condo buildings to get started on construction and be completed? Imagine the views!!!
