Is this the land where their corporate headquarters is located? I had never realized they were a worldwide company until looking at their website. Chalk up another good corp headquarters for the area. Thanks for the info citylife. :thumbsup:

They were especially prominent back in the 80's and 90's, as most residents in Greenville were quite aware at the time. That is a very enviable property for development. I used to attend the world's largest giant-scale model airplane fly-in (more info) at the Hartness property at Pelham/Garlington. They moved the show to another Hartness site near Woodruff several years ago.

This was to be the site of Cliffs Heritage a few years ago.

That's right, and I am still upset that it was rejected. That would have been a very successful development bringing even more extremely high profile exposure to Greenville.

That's wild. I had forgotten about this, but I attended one time, too! I also was invited and went fishing at the pond on that property once or twice.

Any new info on this development?

Furman Co. hasn't found a developer yet willing to build the project.

Obviously I can't speak to this project specifically, but my general impression is that the market is not supportive of new large-scale suburban residential development right now. While it remains to be seen how development patterns will be impacted by this recession, when the economy does turn around, developers who are able to start projects now, while material and production costs are low, will be at an advantage. More importantly, this is a great location for a TND style development, so I hope that they are able to find a developer who has the ability to tackle such a large project.
