Downtown growth gives rise to new tower

A Greenville real estate company is planning a 20-story building downtown near Main and Broad streets that it says will apply a successful suburban office-condominium concept to what would be among the tallest buildings in the city.
Developer Ron Vergnolle said PHC Communities, which he started in 1999, plans to develop the $34- to $35-million project at Broad and Falls streets on property occupied in part by Bouharoun's liquor store, about one block from the Peace Center for the Performing Arts.

To be called The Tower at Falls and Broad, it would include 200,000 square feet and mark the tallest of three downtown high-rise projects that publicly have been disclosed since December. If built, those would add a total of 47 stories to Greenville's skyline.

This is great news for Greenville. I’m extremely proud of how the large cities in South Carolina are developing. In particular Columbia and Greenville. There are larger urban areas in the S.E. that would die for the downtown development projects these cities have accomplished. Most notably, the Falls Park project in downtown Greenville. Overall Greenville, like Columbia, is progressing very nicely.

SOME DOWNTOWN GREENVILLE PROJECTS

THE BOOKENDS

Fronting both McBee Avenue and Washington Street on the sides of the Spring Street Garage, this mixed-use development features 30 residential condominium units from 600 - 2,300 sq. ft along with commercial space. http://www.bookends.us


RIVERPLACE (55 RIVERPLACE)

55 RiverPlace is one of the first nine buildings in a $55 million mixed-use development that is located next to the Reedy River. The development will be comprised of condominiums, offices, retail shops, art studios, restaurants and a hotel. 55 RiverPlace is under construction one block off of Main Street, directly down from the newly renovated Falls Park on the Reedy. The building will have 36 one and two bedroom condominiums. A card access parking deck will be located beneath the building. http://www.55RiverPlace.com


POINSETT CORNERS

The building will be a mixed-use development with limited commercial space and 85 residential units wrapping around a 300-space parking garage. This project offers a variety of homes, from lofts to townhomes to flats, with prices ranging from $110,000 to $250,000. Poinsett Corners is under construction at the intersection of Broad Street and River Street. http://www.poinsettcorners.com


WACHOVIA PLACE

This mixed-use project includes 24 new and affordable apartments designed for young professionals who prefer an urban lifestyle. Facing South Main and Washington Streets, significant features will include nine-foot ceilings, ceiling fans, casement windows, balconies overlooking the street or the courtyard, beautiful lighting packages, and stone floors in the kitchen and bathrooms. http://www.wachoviaplace.com


FALLS PARK ON THE REEDY

Falls Park on the Reedy weaves through the heart of Downtown and encompasses Reedy River Falls. This park is currently undergoing a $70 million renovation to include public gardens and a magnificent pedestrian footbridge over the falls. http://www.fallspark.com

If I am correct there are 7 towers over 12 stories proposed for Greenville at this time. This one that was recently mentioned will be the tallest in SC despite only being 20 stories. It will be 350ft. Only 1ft taller than the Southtrust building in Columbia which is 349ft(24 stories) and is the tallest in the state right now. Developers have really kicked it into high gear. The last thing built over 12 stories in Greenville was the Poinsett Plaza in 1999. Myrtle Beach has one at 28 stories I think, but it is 329ft tall.

Greenville has been progressing quite nicely for the past few years. I'm exicted about the future of the city.
