Megalopolis (10/14)



  1. I like that ownership is open to the possibility of developing the land they own around the arena. The gateway site could be a good long-term catalyst for more development in its vicinity.
  2. Not sure exactly on Verdae, as they don't seem set on any particular vision (IMO). But, in theory, they have plans for residential and retail along Laurens Road. The Swamp Rabbit Trail's recent extension is going to continue to drive new residential along the Laurens Road corridor, with the apartments at Haywood already well under construction).
  3. I've been curious about this, and finally had the chance to do a quick, high level search. So, I'll share for your own pondering: The recent city population estimate is for July 1, 2023. So, I did a quick UP review of Greenville's annexations of existing residential units during that time. I didn't bother reviewing the contents of small parcels. Sizable annexation of existing residential properties from July 1, 2022 to July 1, 2023 (by no means comprehensive): Monaghan Mill: 190 units Riverside Apartments: 200 units Chestnut Street Single Family Homes: 17 addresses Essentially, annexation alone could be credited for the 514 new residents of the City of Greenville. Of course, we also know that new residential development continued to come on the market (particularly in the larger Verdae area), and multifamily units continued to be filled during this time.
  4. Translation: they're asking for more potential height (5 stories, or 7 with bonus).
  5. It's really the residential areas to the south, not County Square, that is the concern.
  6. You'll never see that height there based on the neighborhood masterplan and zoning code. Height is restricted to the city center core.
  7. It’s going to take time to draw the building, go through the permitting process, and allow a GC to prep. Beginning in 2025 is very reasonable. Hopefully the exterior colors and materials are not hideous. It’s interesting that they’ve kicked that can down the road thus far.
  8. That’s the back of the county courthouse.
  9. I would be quite upset if I paid for my membership all winter only for it to close prior to pool season to open.
  10. They're going to be able to come up with some truly entertaining in-game entertainment and video graphics to play off of the name. I hope they have a greasy spoon race sponsored by the Beacon.
  11. I hope everyone had a chance to check out the festival this weekend. From talking to artists and organizers, it really sounds like the 20th year of Artisphere was one for the books. The weather cooperated, and the crowds all weekend were huge. Multiple artists stated to me that they had their best ever show in terms of sales. Money was certainly flowing.
  12. I'm not from Spartanburg, but I think it's a fun name. I look forward to catching a game in the new ballpark, and I'll buy some merch.
  13. I think this has a lot of potential. I'm interested to find out more, and see how this boosts activity in this corner of the West End.
  14. Artisphere is set to unveil a sculpture tomorrow evening to commemorate 20 years of the festival. The art is currently installed and concealed, located on Main Street above Carmella's. I'm looking forward to the unveiling, and the addition of more public art to our streetscape.
