Greenville’s City Park lures townhome development


As development continues to explode in all areas of Greenville, some developers are banking on the much-anticipated proposed City Park, a.k.a. Mayberry Park, that would be located near the Kroc Center. Developer Bobby Barreto with Asterisk Development is proposing 24 new luxury townhomes at 104 S. Hudson St., near the planned park.

“The park is definitely a good thing; it will be a great place for people to live,” said Barreto. “We bought into the vision that the city has with the park and want to help set the precedence for revitalization in that area.”

The townhomes will be located on 1.5 acres and will range from 2,040 square feet for a two-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath unit to 3,200 square feet for a four-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath home. Amenities will include granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, 10-foot ceilings, balconies and one- or two-car garages.


Owners will get to choose from a list of interior design choices including paint color, cabinetry, countertop color and flooring. Floor plans have been designed to include the option for an elevator. If an elevator is not chosen, the shaft will be converted into additional closet space. There will also be an option to extend the floor plan on larger units to include an extra bedroom and bathroom, said Barreto.

A formal name is still in the works and Barreto expects presales to begin in July with construction to begin in August. The project will be done in three phases, the first consisting of nine of the units. Prices will start at $399,000.

Plans have been submitted to the Greenville Design Review Board for review at its May 7 meeting, and a launch party is in the planning stage.
