Looks like a quality development. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

I saw the trucks out there working this week and thought they were getting a quick jump on this project. Then I realized it was just the City putting in new sidewalks in front of the project... right before they get turn up by construction traffic. :dontknow:

Apparently this project is in two phases. The first five units are listed in the Journal Homes section for sale. Prices range from $850,000 - 890,000. Since there aren't that many that need to be sold, hopefully this will happen sooner rather than later. It would be nice ot see another construction site DT.

The sign for the project is now up on site.

Was there a previous development proposed for this site, or is this more of an update on an existing plan? I seem to recall a thread about this site.

I believe there is one (maybe I started??) about this development before we knew the name of it. Or maybe it was just discussed under a general development thread, but it was previously discussed based solely on the siteplan that the City's DPC agenda had online... I'm pretty sure there's not been anything within the last several years proposed for this site.

The McBee Park sign has been down for quite some time. The house was demolished, and nothing else has happened. The website linked in this thread calls for updates in the new year... six months ago!

I hope this doesn't go the way of the other Tom Croft project: The Chicora. Hopefully they're both still in the works...? :dontknow:

The May/June 2010 issue of G magazine has an ad for McBee Park. The website is still just one page.

McBee Park

It mentions 'flats' so obviously the concept is changing quite a bit. Maybe there will be something on this sooner ratehr than later, if they went to the expense of an ad.

Seeing an ad is definitely a good sign, since they've removed their sign on the site. :console:

Now, the City will consider this site again... It appears that Tom Croft is adding the house/lot to the right of the current site? I'm not sure if that was always involved or not...

But, it's going before the Planning Commission for land development permit. No other details are provided.

Spacious living and bedroom spaces are efficiently organized on three levels with elevator stops at each floor.

Masonry exterior and party walls provide exceptional sound insulation from neighbors.

Do not like the part that I quoted. It sounds like City Club in Columbia which is mostly cut off from it's surroundings downtown. My friend lives there. This sounds like it could be the exact description of that neighborhood. Nice materials and styling though. It will be nice to get a different type of building downtown though.

From GSA Business:

The Croft Co. is waiting on infrastructure approval from the city for a new single lot subdivision with a community green space at 701 E. McBee Ave., a few blocks from downtown Greenville. Tom Croft, the Croft Co. Inc. owner, plans to market these in the first quarter of 2013.

The eight, single-family homes will vary in size from 1,500 to 2,800 square feet. The lots will range from 2,100 to 4,100 square feet. These homes and lots will be sold as a package.

Croft, who has been in real estate development for 30 years, sees a lot of demand from young professionals and young couples wanting to have a small footprint close to downtown, in addition to the empty nesters and retired people looking to downsize.

Those houses must be really packed in to that little site. Seems like a better place for a condo/apartment building.
