For several weeks now, the Beach Company has been prepping the site of the new Main + Stone project. On Dec. 8, the company held its official groundbreaking ceremony.
Located at the corner of North Main Street and East Stone Avenue, Main + Stone will be a mixed-use community with 292 rental units and 20,880 square feet of commercial space. Rentals will range from studio apartments to three-bedroom flats and townhomes. The development will also include a resident clubroom, commercial-quality fitness center and saltwater pool. Other amenities will include urban gardens, a pet spa, covered parking garage and on-site retail.
“As one of the most sought-after places to call home in all of Greenville, the North Main area encompasses several historic districts which lend the neighborhood its distinctive charm, with its Craftsman-style architecture, mature landscapes and sense of community,” said Alan McMahon, development manager with The Beach Company. “Given its centralized location between the Heritage, East Park and Colonel Elias Earle districts, Main + Stone will function as a centerpiece that connects the historic neighborhoods of Greenville with the growing downtown renaissance.”
Mayor Knox White and City Council members Lillian Brock Flemming, David Sudduth, Amy Ryberg Doyle and Gaye Sprague joined The Beach Company for the Main + Stone groundbreaking, along with representatives from US Bank, Yeargin Potter Shackelford Construction, McMillan Pazdan Smith Architects and SeamonWhiteside Associates Engineering.
Construction is expected to take 18 months with the first phase of apartments expected to be available for occupancy in late 2015.
