The tallest building that will get built in Downtown will probably be like 10 stories at the most!

As for when will we get a tall building you have to remember, to build tall you have to have a strong foundation, well.........when you're as close to the coast as we are you only have to dig a few feet before you hit water, definetely not good for building a tall structure. You would not believe the amount of concrete under the upper deck section of ECU's football stadium to compensate for weak soil.

As we have said many times before, if you move down here just to get the changes that you had in the last place that you lived you might want to think about moving back. It's not going to happen in Greenville.

They'll build a tall building just as soon as someone thinks there is a reason to. Greenville's current economy is based on 2 things. The hospitals and ECU. Tall buildings are usually built by big industry, technology or banks. 3 things that aren't headquartered in Greenville.

It's not an issue of being too close to the coast or soil. Remember, New York city and LA are perfect examples of dealing with extreme conditions to build tall buildings. Greenville is a walk in the park compared to those areas.

Land is still way too cheap here to make taller buildings cost effective.
