You just brought back memories of my English classes in high school.

Thats unfortunate about the soil contamination.... Greenville needs to start going vertical. Would've liked to see this at six stories.

the inability of this project to build beyond 3-4 stories due to soil contamination concerns if the clay layer above the water table was disturbed is a great example of why we have to be more open-minded when it comes to developing the entire greater Greenville area instead of just focusing on the downtown area.

It's a university building, obviously they would want to be close to the main campus........

It seems like they could excavate the contaminated soil and replace with fresh. I only remember one dry cleaner there, the old Stadium Cleaners.

Or even get an EPA brownfield grant for clean up.

I wasn't speaking specifically to this building but in general, there seems to be a push to develop primarily taller building downtown to prevent "sprawl". My point is that there are often limiting factors that should be taken into account and we shouldn't rely only on large downtown structures as a means for growth.

Has anyone seen actual site plans for this? I'm curious as to what the footprint will look like.
