It's pretty centralized, most of the growth is in Greenville county. Not so much in other counties in the msa.

I grew up outside Seattle and saw the influx of Californians returning or ie overrunning the northwest. That is not possible geographically in this area. Downtown does not have the space for major additions unless they decide to relocate the graveyard. Traffic here is close to non-existent. You can decide where to live and choose to commute in the opposite direction of everyone else. If you work downtown and decide to live in Simpsonville I will not and do not feel sorry for you. Greenville is unique in that the richer neighborhoods are surrounded by the poorer ones. They are spread out over the city so you have a lot of options if you actually think about where to live and how you want to live before you settle down and buy a place. The city leaders have done a good job in planning downtown. I re-located in 2001 when downtown was still a joke. However, if something is not done about the infrastructure and the educational system our community will not continue to attract business. We will be increasingly divided into the haves and the have-nots. If Jesse Jackson wants to actually help the less affluent instead of just getting people to vote for a certain party he might want to look into improving our very poor public transportation system. Private investment in that system would help alleviate a lot of issues in our town. We do a lot of things right in this town but there is always room for improvement.
