Site work is now underway at Garlington North, the mixed-use development sitting on 77 acres at Interstate 85 and Pelham Road in Greenville, where Topgolf recently announced its newest location.
Plans for the site include a two-phase development that incorporates 24 acres of planned green space and preserved wetlands between the north (Phase I) and south sectors.
Representing Greenville-based owner and developer RealtyLink LLC, The Shopping Center Group is the exclusive leasing adviser for the development and also represented Topgolf in its negotiations.
“There is major potential at Garlington North with its incredible visibility to Interstate 85 that carries the highest interstate traffic count in all of Upstate South Carolina,” says Andy Misiaveg, a partner with The Shopping Center Group, Carolinas. “This region overall is one of the fastest growing in the United States and has been touted by top media and research outlets for its growth potential and strong job market. The Greenville market continues to evolve due in part to the strong presence of international corporations such as BMW, Fluor engineering, Fuji [in Greenwood], Bosch, and Michelin, as well as the notoriety of its dynamic Main Street. Couple all that with nearly 4 million visitors annually to the market, and it’s no wonder Topgolf selected this interchange and this site for its Greenville venue.”
Situated on 13.5 acres in the northwest corner of the site, the Topgolf facility will be adjacent to the interchange alongside the under-construction CubeSmart. Topgolf expects to open in summer 2019.
Three additional parcels on 10 acres are still available for sale or ground lease, Misiaveg said. The team of Misiaveg and The Shopping Center Group’s senior leasing adviser Darrell Palasciano is pursuing restaurants, hotel chains, complementary entertainment venues, retail, and offices to complete Phase I.
“Phase II of Garlington North also presents a great opportunity,” said Neil Wilson, principal with RealtyLink. “We’re considering retail, office, industrial, and/or flex space for this 24-acre parcel to determine which use or uses are most complementary and best meet the needs of the region, keeping in mind feasibility and sensibility and how that aligns with our development vision.”
Honbarrier Drive, which runs through the property, will be realigned and widened as part of the development.
