WHOA !!

On 12/18/20, United Community Bank paid $5,750,000 for the building currently housing the Wyche Law Firm . This is the same property that is getting the FILOT property tax agreement.

Holy crap. :shok:  My guess was right. Half way down the page here: https://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/topic/23796-greater-greenville-economic-developments/page/59/#comments

There have been lots of rumors of them moving their corporate headquarters here from Georgia over the last few years. Finally great to see it potentially happening. :shades: PLEASE let this be a highrise also. For $30 million and 225 jobs on that small of a site, you would certainly think so.

^^ If that is the case I might have to move my accounts to UCB. I dread the work involved with that, but my disdain for Wells Fargo's corruption and the chance to support a locally HQed  bank might be worth it.

I’m with Wells Fargo also. I might have to do the same. Lol.

This also begs the question: where is Wyche going to move to? Even though they spent all of that money on the renovation of their current building, it sounds like they got an offer they couldn’t refuse.

Grand Bohemian is projected to cost $100m and their location isn't exactly that much larger than this current Wyche location, so personally I don't expect a high-rise. Probably 5-8 stories, but hopefully with unique architecture.  

I will say wherever Wyche seems to locate, developers want it. Maybe they should move into a construction trailer on the infamous "Gateway Site" next! :tw_tounge_wink:

I wish, but no way you're going to get a highrise out of 30mm and just 225 jobs, unless they put like 5 people per floor, but then it'd cost way more than 30mm.

There was another UCB downtown back in the 90s, maybe United Carolina Bank. I think it was in the smaller glass building, can't remember what it's called now.

The Two Liberty Square 13-story office building once had a C&S bank logo on it, prior to the NCNB merger and creation of NationsBank.  I remember UCB, but somehow can't locate it in my memory of downtown.

Are you thinking of Community Bank--out of Laurens, I think--that opened up an office downtown across the street from the green tile buiiding at the tip of the Gateway site? I'm guessing that was late 80's, but my memory's a bit dim on those details.

I think it was United Carolina Bank.  It took a while to recall that name.  They did have an office downtown, and I think a sign on Two Liberty Square, sometime after C&S during the '90s.

Yeah this was it, the Two Liberty building, also called Two Insignia Financial at one point. That UCB got bought out of course, not sure by who. 

Edit: Here it is, bought out by BB&T in 1997.

Third and final reading for the project will be on February 2nd. Originally it was to be done in November. Delay due to site not being fully closed on by UCB until December.

Yeah, I was a little off (to say the least).

There was a Community Bank at that building at E. North and Broadus. The building was actually built for them. And I'm almost positive it was an attempt by a Laurens bank to make headway into Greenville. I seem to remember that an acquaintance's father was recruited to run their Greenville incursion.

BUT, it all happened in the mid-70's. I found an advertisement for Community Bank in the News archives from May 30, 1976.

Anybody else remember the old American Federal bank, and the "white sheep" commercial jingle?

I'm different, and don't care who knows it

Something about me's, not the same

I'm different,  and that's how it goes

Ain't gonna play no white sheep games.

(Cue black sheep on roller skates)

I do indeed, and liked the "AmFed" logo before they changed to the bland CCB (Central Carolina Bank) logo.

Definitely going to need another parking garage.  Is there enough space there for something that houses 225 jobs?  Could they be buying it as an investment to resell?

If it’s a new building then definitely yes. A parking garage will probably be included with the development plans for the site. I don’t think UCB is buying it as an investment to resell. If so, there wouldn’t be a FILOT/tax incentive agreement with the county for 225 new jobs and $30 million investment. Definitely sounds like they’re buying the site for their corporate HQ relocation out of Georgia.

Thanks, and nice one on getting the scoop!

I remember this UCB. They had a branch in that multilevel building with drive thru attached on [email protected] in the Exchange on Pelham. (just before you get to North Hills Medical and Prisma now) One of the first buildings in that area. Rounded on the corner looked like a space ship lit up at night when first built in the 80's.  I think the building is for sale or lease now.
