I just want to know about the potential mixed-use development in Downtown Greenville. I remember a while back there were talks of building a mixed-use development across from the library, but that was cancelled.

It must be something else since he did say "retail" business...

These new developments have me excited, especially when Carl Rees was speaking, something about the way he mentioned the downtown area says were in for a big suprise, maybe it was the way he was all giggly when talking about it, only if there was someone on here close to him and try to get some inside info...

Well, there's the new visitor's center set to be built in between the Scullery and Dale's, and twice someone on here has posted a completely unconfirmed rumor about tearing down the buildings that house The OP, Rumors, etc. (except Sup Dogs) and replacing it with a much larger building.


And enough with the Waffle Houses already!

It seemed like they were just playing in the dirt when they started construction for the new Walmart. But all of a sudden they seem to be really making a lot of progress. If you havn't seen it lately they already have a couple very large walls up and have some of the curbs and parking lot poured with sod alread down, which to me seems odd that they did that already. I've never seen construction like start on the parking lot and sod before the building was even done but oh well. They are even starting to put the top layer of dirt down for the strip mall directly behind the food lion. I'm excited and wondering how much longer they have. I'm hoping most of the "hard" work is done and they'll be able to make a lot more obvious progress.

I bet the mixed-use downtown development will be at the Georgetown Apartments. And a possible corporate HQ relocation??? If it does come, I assume it would be on the smaller side, but THAT is what we need.

Could you imagine a decent sized company relocating to downtown? A massive influx of working professionals would absolutely turn around the area even quicker.

I couldn't agree more!
