Only a few project applications were on the agenda during the November meeting of the Greenville Design Review Board.
100 N. Markley St.
First up was the new proposed hotel at 100 N. Markley St. No branding of the hotel was discussed for the five-story mixed-use project by Illinois-based Hostmark Hospitality Group. The ground level will be retail and restaurants, including a possible brewery, all managed by the hotel. The property will also feature a rooftop deck. The board liked the design and approved the application.
The application for signage for the Deca Camperdown apartment community at the Camperdown project at Main and Broad streets was approved.
10 Toy St.
This property in the Pettigru Historic District was once home to the Hayne School. Built in 1919, it was one of the major building projects of J.L. Mann, superintendent of Greenville County School, and was named after P.T. Hayne, a longtime chairman of the school district’s board of trustees who started one of Greenville’s first lending libraries in downtown for young men.
The property has had several different plans over the past few years, including turning the property into condos. The most recent plan, and the one discussed at this month’s DRB meeting, are renovations already in progress to turn the property into income-producing office space.
Only one project was discussed during the informal review: Beach Quadrangle, a proposed townhome community by the Beach Co. at Buncombe and Whitner streets. The original design for the project went before the board a year ago. The proposed project will include single-family attached homes in a craftsman-style design. The board liked the design overall and reinforced carrying the scale and detailing of gables and the craftsman detail throughout the project.
