CONSTRUCTION THREAD: RiverWalk


Recommended Posts

I'll be fair and withhold final judgment until the building is completed, but thus far, I'm a little underwhelmed with how this is turning out. The windows seem disproportionately small relative to the overall building.

Yea, the brick to glass ratio doesn't seem quite like it did in the renderings. Also, the spire on top seems kinda thin. It's easy to miss, IMO.

Nonetheless, the new artist studios, the small amount of office space, and the new apartments are definitely a welcomed addition to the West End! :thumbsup: Now, we just need more apartments...

I like it:

The RATIO of glass to brick wall isn't going to change no matter how long we wait!

I would assume the artist studios are still part of the plan. They have built out most of the retail into what appears to be 500 SF bays. Pretty hard to rent those out to any other retail user. The large retail space is still available and I don't know if they have a tenant or not. The question I have is how in the heck is he going to park this thing? There appears to be about 60 surface spaces for 44 apartment units (mostly 3 beds) and a significant amount of office space.

I assume they'll be using the Riverplace garage. Those parking spaces are eventually meant to be developed.

I think this is also a reason why the side of the building facing Academy is sparsely decorated in terms of windows and other features. Eventually it will be hidden by another building, correct?

Saw people moving into Riverwalk this weekend and the parking lot was full.

I saw some units lit up with people occupying them over the weekend. I need to get out and walk around this development, but I want to do this once they get the powerlines buried and the streetscaping in place. The retail spaces facing Camperdown look good. They have lease signs up in the windows. I wonder if these spaces will be regular retail, with the artist studios only running down the side of the building?

Has anyone else noticed the light projections they've been testing on the top of the Riverwalk building for the last several evenings? Deep colors, patterns, sometimes pulsating and sometimes (right now) solid but changing colors in a rolling sequence, projected on that vertical wall above the roofline. Very different from the slowly changing individual uplights on the Riverplace building -- looks like it'll be striking once they finalize it. Just curious if anyone knows what's up and/or if it'll be a permanent feature.

I saw it earlier tonight and took a few pics which I will post later. Going off what I saw, this building will probably be the best lit up one downtown once it's all complete in my opinion.

RiverWalk's lasers are on. This is the first time I have seen them being used. You can see them throughout the entire downtown area shooting across the sky from atop of the building.

Adec Group, Vidaloo, and the Parker Company have all made their way to the ground floor of this building. Originally these spaces were going to be for artist studios but Hughes decided in the end to go with start up companies like you see at Next.

I have to say I have been very impressed with the crowds at Rick's Deli & Market also.

Wonderful...another corporate, safe, bland restaurant for downtown Greenville.

 

I'm curious whether you've been to Rick's Market and Deli now that it's open, and if you still feel this way. Not sure why folks have to knock something before it's even opened. I've been in a few times now and loved it. Really like the atmosphere and the food (both taste and selection). Certainly more hip and current than Two Chefs, and I love having another grab and go option for late in the day. The chef is a one-star Michelin chef from France, and they're making everything in-house -- including the French Macaroons, which are out this world, and something I never dreamed I could get fresh in Greenville, SC.
