Here’s a recap of the Oct. 7 meeting of Greenville’s Design Review Board Urban Panel:
Approved: Carolina Ale House downtown to undergo major renovation
Plans for the downtown location of Carolina Ale House to undergo major renovations were unanimously approved.
The renovation plans, submitted by Carolina Ale House owner Chris Sullivan and architect Ken Betsch, include a replacement for the existing storefront and relocating entrance doors for its location at 113 S. Main St. The addition of a second entrance will allow the building to bring in a new tenant for the ground floor of the building, while Carolina Ale House will operate exclusively out of the second floor.
“It’s a fairly simple project,” Betsch said. “We did the building about 12 years ago, and at that point in time it was a single tenant occupying the building. Since that time, the tenant would like to lease the ground floor space to a separate tenant.”
Betsch said the new tenant has already been selected but did not name them.
With Carolina Ale House moving all operations to the second floor, the renovations will require relocating and replacing the first floor canopies, relocating the sign for Carolina Ale House and replacing the second floor windows. It will also include replacing the glass wall and skylight on the second floor with a new glass wall and adding new and additional roofing.
The plans were approved under the condition that the new awning design and the new signage will be submitted to city staff for review and approval.
