City planners will get their first look at plans for a proposed mixed-use development on the site of the old Memorial Auditorium as part of the Greenville Gateway initiative.
The proposed development, located on the spot Mayor Knox White once called the “Bermuda Triangle of downtown development,” will be reviewed at the city’s July 7 Design Review Board Urban Panel meeting.
Greenville Gateway will “serve as a gateway and arrival experience into the urban core,” the developers said in the proposal.
- 300 apartments.
- 6,600 square feet of commercial space.
- 6,700 square feet of restaurant/amenities space.
- 335 on-site parking spaces.
The proposal for the project also envisions a future Gateway pedestrian bridge connecting the site to the Bon Secours Wellness Arena.
Plans also incorporate space for public art displays, a “cultural corridor extension” lined with art and performance studios, and a public terrace.
Of the 300 apartments the plan envisions, 15% will be studio units, 40% will be one-bedroom units and 45% will be two-bedroom units, according to the plans.
