A seven-story upscale hotel, 16 condos, two office buildings, retail and restaurant spaces, a dine-in movie theater and public plazas are all part of new plans released for the redevelopment of the current four-acre Greenville News property downtown.
“We are very excited to present this initial site plan, which gives a great overview of our vision for this landmark property in downtown Greenville,” said David Glenn, founder and CEO of Centennial American Properties (CAP), which is working along with Dallas-based Trammell Crow Corporation to develop the property. “It has a great mix of fresh new retail, office and residential space along with public plazas that offer connectivity and synergy with the Peace Center and Falls Park. Our team has worked hard to put together a plan that we feel will enhance and bring fresh energy to downtown Greenville with new entertainment opportunities, signature office space and contemporary in-town living.”
The plans will be reviewed at the Jan. 2 city of Greenville Design Review Board meeting.
“While there are sure to be some changes to the site plan as the City gives additional input and to meet the needs of future tenants, our plan shows how this development can help take our downtown to the next level by turning an under-utilized property into a community that will offer new entertainment options to downtown while bringing additional residents and office employees into the area to support local businesses,” said Brody Glenn, president of CAP.
