The good news is that the space has already sold. I guess the Breakwater owners got an offer they couldn't refuse. 

Lots of new restaurants opening or coming downtown including one for the old 21 East space, Dixies Tavern space, Husk, Famous Toastery, Diner 24, Crepe du Jour, Tropical Grille, Blue Ridge, Basil, Terrace,  etc. Don't let two closings make you think the foodie scene downtown is slipping.

Agree we are continuing to get new restaurants but I don't think any of the new ones are really raising the bar, with the exception of Husk. You go to Charleston, for instance, and you could stumble into a restaurant that would blow your socks off by accident. I eat out downtown often and haven't been blown away in a while. Lots on inconsistency and most of the food really isn't that 'crave-able' --- Obviously this is just my opinion.

I hope Greenville gets some restaurants that raise the bar. We have some good potential... it just seems like they need someone to force them to be better and more creative.

I don't think we will ever get on the same level as Charleston. That is a whole different animal in itself. Have you tried Jianna yet? I loved it. :) Really nice restaurant and some of the best spaghetti I have ever eaten.

Glad that this will be an additional location instead of a relocation.

H&M is opening a 27,000 sf location in downtown Nashville.

Sounds like a feasible store for downtown Greenville, right?

The biggest problem would be finding a retail spot downtown that large. I could see them locating at Camperdown.

I dont remember Camperdown having enough space for either. County Square might be the best for both.

The movie theater at camperdown would have been a total mess. There's no way for traffic to get in and out of there easily. I think it would work at the county development though because you have major roads coming in and out to it.

A movie theater would probably work at County Square better than Camperdown but I don't see why it would work either place. How would moviegoers be any different than any one else going DT already.

Falls Place Retail spaces

Two Retail spaces being added facing the Park

Strange that this wasn't done before now.  

I've always wondered why this had not been done before. Did the office tenant on that level leave? If possible, I'd love to see a restaurant with outdoor dining take one of these spaces.

Yes the larger space on the corner would be great for a restaurant
