I know we have seen this rendering but thought it should be posted again. Who knows what the DPC will say this time?

Thanks for posting. I can't imagine why they'd find reason to reject the Main At River Street project. It's got the building facade incorporated and if they care AT ALL about growing downtown then they should know that that property is a very important link. It sounds like a lot of great additions to downtown.

Actually, has the meeting happened yet? And if so, what was the verdicts?

Some interesting proposals for restaurants in the West End at the October DPC meeting. It'll be interesting to see if they let these fly.

I'm not so sure about a stucco entryway on that beautiful old brick building. Just have to wait and see and trust them to do it right.

Yes, that is the building purchased by the Brick City Grille owners. That will be one awesome new hangout, I'm sure. It will add to the growing vibrancy in the West End after dark as well. :shades:

Believe it or not, the DPC rejected the proposed project at Main and River Streets in the West End.

When is the DPC going to wake up and realize that this most recent proposal is a great project? The structure that is currently there is clearly unusable and unsightly. It's not like the developer wants to build a highrise on that spot!

I can't believe they rejected Bib! :shok: He's up there with the Pillsbury Doughboy, Tony the Tiger and Ronald MacDonald in status.

I love Bib!

This is sad. :cry:

I love Bibendum as much as the next guy, but it definitely would've looked out of place.

How would you like a Ronald McDonald statue up there? Piggly Wiggly...?

I agree with gsupstate regarding the instant landmark Mr. Bibendum would add to Greenville's downtown. He is a globally recognizable icon and would instantly become an icon visitors could attach to our beautiful downtown.

Skyliner, your graphic and idea above goes along with Michelins thinking. A modern day version of "meet me under thc clock at Marshall Fields". The last sentences from an article in the GV News:

The aim of the Michelin Man on the entrance is as a signature for the destination.

"We are working to create a destination, one that can be used for directions," he said. "We'd like people to say, 'Go to the Michelin Man and turn left.' "

I wonder if the DPC would deny a Mickey head if this were Disney? If you think I'm stuck on this Bib thing, I am, because I see this as much more than Bib on a building. I see this as a bellwether case for the DPC. The DPC has got to lighten up (keeping good taste in mind) and have some fun! Greenville has slowly and surely built one of the best downtowns in the nation, and we need to start enjoying it more. We need to inject some sense of humor into it and we need to lighten up. IMHO.

Wow. This is not at all the news I wanted to read on here. They rejected Mr Bib AND the River St\Main St proposal? Sorry, but this is garbage. The building for the corner is Main and River Streets REPLACES the SAME facade that currently exists and expands the current space on the lot. I don't understand the problem. What century are we in and what city are we? I am glad they will continue to try, but who knows when they will just give up...? It must be discouraging... <_<

Its difficult to judge not knowing all of the details. When they approve something we like, we are just happy and dont ask why. When it's to the contrary, we never know the reason for the rejection and it may be something that we are not aware of from the few pics posted here, we just assume they didnt like the picture and that they are making a mistake.

They might have a very good reason, and I would like to give them some praise for their work so far. I am very pleased with the downtown they have helped shape and so are many others from the numbers of people that flock to this area every day and night.
