The former Relax Inn site, which appears to include a former International House of Pancakes restaurant, at 107 Duvall Drive, Greenville, South Carolina 29607-3738, is one of two South Carolina locations used car dealership EchoPark plans to open in 2018. EchoPark has five locations in Colorado.

Although it is another car dealership along the Laurens Road corridor, the specific site on Duvall Drive being redeveloped is good.

Sounds like a good concept, since it works well for CarMax, AutoNation and Carvana..

But "EchoPark" for a used car dealer name? Strange.

Funny! The first thing that comes to mind for me is the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, which used to be a sort of dodgy area. It may be better now?

Default EchoPark, 107 Duvall Drive, Greenville, South Carolina 29607-3738

The former Relax Inn was demolished and the site graded in March 2017. New construction for EchoPark has not started. I wonder if EchoPark is still a go, or if it has abandoned plans for its Greenville location.

I work right down the street from there and there has been no activity on that piece of land for months. My guess is that the deal fell through.

That's the one that the city shut down as a nuisance property, isn't it?

If so.. Not far off, Downtown27..
