Great design for a Grand Strand Time Share Condo. Not so much for Downtown Greenville.

Yes it is. It's like something you'd see in Vancouver. Unfortunately the "if it aint southern red brick, then I hate it crowd" has come outta the woodwork to show their dismay for something different.

So you think Greenville, Charleston, Savannah, DC, etc are ugly???? I couldn't ever trust a person's tastes who thinks such lol.

There’s a difference between old midrises and current ones. We will never have the history of the cities you listed and pretending that we do comes off as fake and cheesy.

And Greenville isn't doing that by building mostly midrises; it simply means that it has tapped into a tried and true principle of good urban design and judging by downtown's success, it is obviously working. I don't see anything "fake and cheesy" about downtown Greenville as is. There will be more architectural diversity as trends continue to evolve, it's that simple.

Congratulations to Hughes Investments. It is beyond time someone got with the program with vertical growth downtown. Others who want to build downtown should get with the program and board the bandwagon.

Agreed - it’s happening. But this seems a bit of a stretch. Probably shouldn’t happen until infrastructure can be adequately planned implemented. That’s the downside to infill and vertical growth. It will definitely happen, but not soon. (this type project ).
