|Downtown Greenville, SC|
New Trolleys on Main St.Our beloved trolleys that service downtown Greenville’s Main Street are getting an upgrade and extended running hours. The trolleys were originally created to ferry riders to the Greenville Drive baseball games from the upper reaches of Main Street. But they have become so popular for getting around town in general that the city will offer the service every night from Thursday through Sunday. The end goal is to offer it every day of the week. The system has a few new kinks to it. Riders will catch it at 20 fixed stops and can access a phone app to see where the bus is located in real time. The return northbound loop will run on parallel roads to Main and on designated weekends, there will be a detour route to serves the Heritage Green area and the Children’s Museum. The new trolleys will also feature a conductor who will show off the downtown area. Best of all, they will continue to be FREE.
New Hotel and Luxury Condo Projects Downtown
Two prime spots near the Peace Center are getting close to starting new developments. The Greenville News which has been a landmark for 50 years, will be torn down and replaced by a major complex that will include a hotel, residential units, as well as office and retail space. That lot is 3.96 acres and will certainly change the landscape. Just across Broad Street and directly across from the Westin Poinsett Hotel on East Court Street, there are plans to build a luxury condo six stories tall with mixed use space below. For those who know the street well, it’s right behind the small plaza next to Bellacinos’s where there is a statue of city founder Vardry McBee. The lot is pretty small at one-fifth of an acres, so they will be going up to gain space. This project still need approval of the City’s Design and Review Board.
