Thanks for posting, the link procided a lot of good information about Charlotte as well. Althought I am not as optimistic that the Mint Hill Development will open in 2014.

Wish the Killian's Road project was further along to see what they are planning.

I've seen it many times before.
There was some discussion on towne centers previously in this thread I think. I for one really like them. Having been to two last year (one in Salt Lake City which was fantastic, and one north of Nashville which is more on par of MPTC).

Towne Centers are a nice way to spend an evening. Go out for dinner, maybe stroll over and see a movie. Then do some window shopping (or actual shopping), grab a desert and head home. I realize that you can do these types of things at malls, but being outside in a nicely landscaped, safe environment is something special.

I liked the Winter Park Village near Orlando. I was there about 10 years ago visiting my wife before we were married, and thought the whole idea was pretty cool. If that's how Magnolia Park turns out, I could be satisfied with that.

The name of this development needs to be changed to Magnolia Mess. What a disaster so far. It is far from being a town centre.

Greenville has not had a major mall built since Haywood in 1981. Im really suprised some developer hasn't capitalized on the opportunity by building an OUTDOOR type mall like partridgecreek in Michigan out around Simpsonville or Powdersville. I think this area is ready for a second mall as long as they are not stacked next to each other like the old Greenville and Haywood malls used to be. Long over due for another mall with traditional dept store anchors and mall stores either outdoor or indoor in another part of the county but it needs to be far enough from Haywood so they serve different areas.

Does it matter? It's all just sprawl anyways.

There is ample land for such an idea already in Simpsonville off I-385 near Harrison Bridge Road. With the additional lanes being built on I-385, access for Greenville residents would be pretty easy. Probably faster than trying to drive down Woodruff Rd. on a Saturday. These "open-air" type of concepts are becoming more popular in the US. "The Avenue" is an open-air developer and has several locations across the country - several in Georgia.

I agree and think that another mall could be built in another part of the metro which would indirectly reduce some traffic to Woodruff Road. I think that a good location would be off of 153 between Old Pendleton Road and Hood Road. That would serve Powdersville, West Greenville, Easley, Pickens, Liberty and many other small towns around the area. I know of a lot of people from around Easley that presently drive all the way to Woodruff Road weekly to go to stores and restaurants over there.
