"Huge" New Sports Complex

16 posts in this topic

This should add a lot of new sports and entertainment options for the area. Sounds like it will be nice, and if all five phases get built, quite large as well. A new complex is needed, and this should complement the Kroc Center well, on this side of town. :good:

Fairforest Way and Mauldin Road? That's next to the old Municipal Stadium, isn't it? Is this the same project that encompasses the old stadium or is this something new and in addition to the plans for the old stadium?

I'm not completely sure who this project will target, but it is interesting considering the Kroc Center is about to be built downtown with most of these same amenities.

I've been out of town for about 12 days, but just got back and heard about this. Some people last night were talking about a tram system to connect this development with other I-85 developments and downtown. Anyone know more? :dontknow: From reading the article, I can't tell if this is being developed by a church organization or a commercuial developer? :dontknow:

I hope this development turns out nicely and isn't just abunch of metal sided buildings. I drove by the site yesterday and it is in a very industrial area off of Fair Forest, and not close to 85. Not the best greatest area of town. The coming soon sign is just a cheap banner. I have a fear this may be a low end Kroc Center. Hope I'm wrong. At any rate, it'll be another entertainment option. :)

You guys may be right, but this just sounds like it will be waayy more than a run-of-the-mill rec complex. I don't know too many average complexes with this many different venues, retail, restaurants and a concert hall (bigger than the Peace Center BTW). This sounds to be something really special (of course we'll ahve to stay tuned as we know how these projects seem to go around here :rolleyes: ). :good:

With all they have planned, I wonder just how feasible it is that we'll see all of this come to fruition. I hope they can pull it off, but all of this stuff in that location doesn't seem like something I would bank on. But I hope they can do it! :)

^ I hope it's a success too. It'll serve a need in the community.

With Kroc Center, we've seen the renderings of San Diego's and we know the quality they build....plus it's on the edge of downtown and West End, in a redeveloping area. Have a great feeling about it.

With this project, it's being developed by locals with little development experience and it's in a light industrial area with mostly metal type warehouse buildings. I just hope it turns out nicely. The better it looks and the more features it has, will create a larger draw and ultimately ensure greater success.

I agree I love to see venues like this. Greenville needs as many of these projects as the community can support.

Did this development just die off quietly? :dontknow: Haven't heard anymore and was by this site a week or so ago....no construction.

It always seemed a bit shakey anyway....
