*Funding for the new Federal Courthouse will not be available until next Fall at the earliest. The footprint will be rather large due to the required square footage and the limited number of floors spoken of to reporters. Early requirements for building design More Info Here

These are only projects that have been publicly mentioned to date.



Highrise proposals not included on this list include a 9-story mixed use building downtown, 8-story condo building downtown, 7-story mixed use building downtown, 9-story county office building and 11-story condo building at Magnolia Park Town Center, and several rumored 30+ story buildings. I'll have renderings for some of these in my next post. Pinnacle on Main is scheduled to start grading on site sometime next week. Here are some update pics of the Peacock Hotel and Spa, which is going to be one of the finest hotels in the southeast and will go for 5-star status. Pics were taken on March 15 by me:

Here are renderings of what the Peacock Hotel and Spa will look like:





Here are some other renderings for the Camperdown Condos:



The next new development is a mixed-use $137 million dollar project downtown that will include 9 buildings set in three phases. One of the buildings is a Hampton Inn and Suites Hotel, which is the one next to the large fountain that is already finished. There are also three other buildings in phase 1, including one office building with restaurants and two condo buildings. Right now the fifth building and the first of phase 2 named the Terrace at Riverplace, which will have condos is under construction. The City of Greenville now has the money for the next phase of the Riverplace Garage which will move up the Phase 2 timetable. Hughes says apartments may be included as well as extention of Art Crossing. The third phase may include a movie theater and/or a grocer. The third phase's 12 story office building may go higher if demand warrants.

Rendering; more on websites after pics and renderings of Riverplace:

Just to show everybody how fast Greenville is growing, all developments listed below are located within a 4-mile circle in the City of Greenville. This isn't even all of them either. There is also Magnolia Park Town Center, Shops at Greenridge, the Point, and others not listed below. I'll have more information on all of these developments in the next few posts:


The Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research – CU-ICAR:

 A 250 acre master-planned research campus encompassing five “technology neighborhoods,” each anchored by a research university magnet facility. CU-ICAR is located along I-85 in Greenville, SC, and was formally announced by Clemson University in 4th Quarter 2003.
 Vision: To be the premier automotive & motorsports research and educational center in the world.
 $214+ million has already been committed to the project in land, infrastructure, buildings, equipment, and faculty through public/private partnerships – including the 90,000 sq ft, $25 million Campbell Graduate Engineering Center [officially opening 2007] which will house one of the world’s most innovative automotive/motorsports graduate programs, focusing on systems integration – with over $36 million in endowed chair faculty positions.
 Announced CU-ICAR major private partners include BMW, Michelin, Timken, Sun, IBM, and Microsoft. Major public partners include the State of SC and Greenville City and County.
 BMW launched an 84,000 sq ft, $15 million Information Technology Research Center on the CU-ICAR campus in 2005 and will employ over 200 – in addition to their 4,400 employee manufacturing facility minutes away. Timken is constructing its 110,000 sq ft global power train research center, opening Summer 2006 – projecting over 100 positions with average salaries exceeding $80,000. A 1,200 car structured parking facility with marketing offices/mixed use elements along with privately developed office/lab buildings will be completed in 2007. A Computational Center for Mobility Systems has been announced.
 CU-ICAR has been hailed as one of the most revolutionary, public/private economic development projects in the world. It is projected to create thousands of knowledge-based jobs in Greenville on a campus designed to accommodate millions of square feet.

The South Financial Group – HEADQUARTERS PROJECT:

 The South Financial Group announced a massive expansion of its corporate headquarters on March 17, 2006, on a 68 acre tract along I-85, adjacent to CU-ICAR in Greenville, South Carolina.
 Phase 1 of a 4-phase master plan anticipates the creation of approximately 600 new jobs with an average salary of approximately $54,000/year, and an initial capital investment of $100 million. Construction will commence “soon” with completion of phase 1 by 2011.
 Phase 1 of the campus environment anticipates 375,000 square feet of office space, 1,500 parking spaces, 4 buildings, and a “town center.”
 This project will anchor a growing financial services cluster in Greenville; The South Financial Group has total assets of $14.3 billion, ranks 40th among US banks in total assets, and is the largest financial services company ever headquartered in South Carolina.

Verdae Development, Inc. – VERDAE:

 Verdae [official brand name], unveiled on May 3rd, 2005, is an 1,100-acre master planned, mixed-use development near the intersection of I-85 and I-385 in Greenville, South Carolina.
 Verdae’s eventual value could be $1.5 billion according to William G. Monroe, project master planner. Approximately 3.5 million square feet of commercial space, homes for 10,000 residents, and places to work for 15,000 employees could eventually take shape according to news reports.
 The Board of Hollingsworth Funds, Inc. [the not-for-profit organization established by deceased textile magnate, John D. Hollingsworth] created Verdae Development, Inc. – a subsidiary of Hollingsworth Funds. Verdae Development, Inc., was organized and financially structured to implement the Master Plan in the role of developer.
 Verdae will be developed in phases over a 20-30 year period. It will encompass residential components [single-family homes, townhouses, condominiums, apartments, retirement center, and the Hollingsworth Legacy Park incorporating an amphitheater] and commercial components [hotels, retail, a variety of office and professional spaces, and “The Town Center at Verdae”]. Phase 1 will emphasize the retirement community, residential housing, and the Hollingsworth Legacy Park. Initial site work is underway.
 The project is designed to be an unprecedented mixed-use development in Greenville that will “meet the needs of the growing labor force that will be entering the marketplace as a result of CU-ICAR and the Millenium Campus.”

Rosen Associates Development, Inc. – THE MILLENNIUM CAMPUS:

 The Millennium Campus, developed by Rosen Associates Development, Inc. and formally announced in 2004, is located on 500+ acres along I-85 in Greenville, South Carolina, adjacent to CU-ICAR.
 Millennium Campus’s first major project is the headquarters for Hubbell Lighting, Inc. which is expected to house 350 employees in a $36 million, 175,000 square foot multi-story facility currently under construction. Greenville and The Millennium Campus were selected by Hubbell after an intense recruiting effort that involved cities in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Completion of Hubbell’s headquarters facility is expected in 4th Quarter 2006.
 The Millennium Campus is described as a pedestrian-friendly, international environment. It is targeting research, technology-driven, knowledge-based industries across the globe that are seeking a new strategic presence.
 It is anticipated that the project is capable of creating thousands of jobs and could result in millions of square feet constructed over a 20-30 year period.

This was taken at the Millennium Blvd./Old Sulpher Springs Road intersection next to Hubbell Lighting Headquarters. What you see in front of you is where South Financial Headquarters is going. I drove by this site just yesterday and the trees were still standing. Drove by today and well, you get the picture. Every tree between the old entrance where the Harper Corp. sign is and where this picture was taken have been torn down:

the michelin shop will have many different things about michelin, north america since their headquarters is in Greenville, SC. So its not really just a supped up tire shop. Its a way for michelin to show off and showcase different tire technologies, and what supply to the rest of the world.

Also a proposal will probably come for the old Gateway site which a developer is wanting to build the tallest building in SC on.
