Live-work neighborhood may have found El Dorado

By Teresa Killian | Staff Writer

A new-to-Spartanburg "live-work" neighborhood may be in store for the wooded land behind where the El Dorado motel once stood.[edit by Spartan: the El Dorado was a roach motel- everyone was glad to see it go]

The selling point would be efficiency -- cutting down commute time and saving money through consolidating the expenses of housing and a small business with a few employees. Limited parking would mean the kinds of businesses allowed would bring minimal traffic.

In a way, it's very similar to what's happening downtown in a lot of old store buildings upstairs renovated into apartments."

Only it's different from downtown -- a little farther from busy streets and restaurants. [edit by Spartan: Its acutally alot closer to the busiest streets and restaurants in Spartanburg]

The site under consideration is behind the business-zoned property where the motel once stood.

The residents would be close to downtown and shopping at nearby Dorman Centre and WestGate Mall.
