Bass Pro Shops Purchases 75 acres on I-85

Just when I thought the Bass Pro Shops deal was fading, I see that Bass Pro Shops closed on 75 acres at I-85 and Hwy 101 yesterday.  That is really going to alter the landscape for development in the "Golden Box" which runs along the Greenville and Spartanburg County line. The location is just across Hwy 101 from the BMW plant, which employs several thousand in the area.  And Greer is not expected to annex the complex, which has been their on their agenda for several years.  Time frame for completion is 2016 and Bass Pro Shops will be the anchor for a hotel, restaurants, and other retail outlets.
