Looking at that drawing in more detail......

Looks like a four story building. Four level parking deck.

It looks like the hill will be taken out.

The new railroad switching yard north of Greenville should open late April or early May. The tracks for the new switching station are already built. The rail yard office are currently being built, which is needed to provide office space for the train master and facilities for the eight to 10 CSX employees.


FYI, a switching yard is where different trains bring in cars of freight which are broken up into smaller, manageable segments that are shipped to customers.

I've heard official rumblings that it is, but nothing confirmed confirmed.

The Reade Circle apartment project looks like a great improvement to that area. It looks like they will be building a parking deck along with it and looks like some shops along the front maybe. It makes a lot of sense to have more residential development downtown because once there are a lot of people living nearby there will be a demand and customer base for new restaurants and shops etc. Even if this project is only student apartments (which it looks to be) that is still more people downtown.

Where exactly is the new switching yard and where was the old one? I thought it was downtown but I don't know exactly where.

The old switching yard is between Arlington and Howell right at JH Rose high school. It's the reason Arlington traffic is stopped several times a day as the trains move cars between "loads".

The new switching yard is near North Memorial Dr on the north side of the river. Somewhere right where 903 splits off of 11-13-903.

The new switching yard will not decrease the number of trains moving through Greenville. It will greatly reduce the number of times and length of time that traffic is stopped on Arlington. They will still have to use the old site to change the directions that trains move. IE: An eastbound train that has to go north will still have to change tracks right in Greenville.

More new info on the apt complex.

Tom Taft and Jim Ward are the investors.

It is a $40 million complex.

It will be 240 units, 545 rooms with a private bathroom - and include a pool, health club, state-of-the-art security system and a 430-space enclosed parking deck

It will be 5 stories and have 11,485 square feet of retail and outdoor seating and dining. The bottom retail section will face Reade Circle.

The upper four floors will be separated into three sections with their own courtyard.

The developers said this will not be a "party apartment complex". But somewhere attractive and safe to live.

Demolition will begin next week, and it will be complete in about a month.

Construction should begin in June and take 18-20 months; so December '14 - February '15.

Sadly, I believe so. A lot of history in that building, but it does no good in its current capacity.
