Major commercial real estate developments in the Upstate are moving forward at the start of the new year. Here are status updates on a few notable redevelopments and new builds.
301 College St., Greenville
Canvas Academy, a 19-story mixed-use residential building, will soon see exciting developments. The Beach Co.’s development manager, Tim Cotter, said the tower is currently in the entitlement process.
Cotter said the Charleston-based development company hopes to obtain permits before the end of the first quarter of 2024. With that timeline in mind, construction may begin by the end of summer or early third quarter of the year.
The Daniel Building
301 N. Main St., Greenville
A $4 million redevelopment project is planned for the Daniel Building, also known as the Landmark Building, in downtown Greenville.
The project aims to make the 25-story building more pedestrian-friendly along the city’s Cultural Corridor and attract new retail and office tenants. Renovations include revamping the outside plaza, lobby and parking deck.
Gaston Albergotti, president of Dunean Capital Management, said construction is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2024 and take 12 months to complete.
Pendleton Street, Greenville
Developers hope to begin construction of Woven, a mixed-use development in the Village of West Greenville, by summer 2024.
The 214-unit housing project — with 44 units reserved for affordable housing — received final approval from Greenville City Council in January 2023. Plans for the project also include a public park, public plaza, art gallery, space for retail tenants and a parking deck.
Tax incentives for the mixed-use development were approved by Greenville County Council in September 2023.
The Mill at Fountain Inn
100 Ellison St., Fountain Inn
The Mill at Fountain Inn is shaping up to be an eclectic use of space utilizing three historic flour-mill buildings.
The first portion of the redevelopment project to open will be a brewery, with a target date of spring 2024. To utilize the brewery’s space to total capacity, the upstairs of the building will be a coworking space during business hours.
Along with the brewery, Crafted Community Concepts will develop a green space and outdoor screen to be ready for use around the same time while finalizing goals for the project’s next phase.
Trade Street Social
315 Trade St., Greer
Bryan Beal, CEO of Crafted Community Concepts, said the main reason for the delay is the team is busy. With closing on other projects, like The Mill at Fountain Inn, the team wants to be able to give full attention to the Greer undertaking.
319 Rhett St.
319 Rhett St., Greenville
Developers are busy in the design phase for the mixed-use hotel and residential project planned for 319 Rhett St. in downtown’s West End. The development was approved with conditions by the city’s Design Review Board in April 2023 after early plans were previously deferred.
The permitting process for the project is expected to begin in March 2024. Pinnacle Partnership, Focus Westend LLC, Gateway Ventures and Dynamik Design are developing the project.
American Spinning Mill
300 Hammett St., Greenville
The redevelopment of the historic American Spinning Mill is nearly complete. The mixed-use, 360,000-square-foot development near Sans Souci already has apartments available for rent, with the remaining floors to be completed in spring 2024.
David W. Schaffer, regional construction manager of Contour Development Group, said the food court is also expected to be occupied in the spring.
Buncombe Road and A Street, Greenville
Poe Mill, another redevelopment spearheaded by Contour Development Group in Greenville’s Park Place area, has some improvements underway, with construction set to begin Summer 2024.
The mill will be a mixed-use site with restaurants, apartments, gathering areas and green space expected.
