The City of Greenville’s Design Review Board approved plans for 300 E. McBee Ave.
These plans for 300 E. Mcbee Ave. include adding first-floor retail, new lighting and glass, expanded sidewalks, and a ride-share drop-off to transform the historic building just one block off Main Street.
The City of Greenville’s Design Review Board (DRB) approved Hughes Commercial Properties’ plans for 300 E. McBee Ave. to add:
- First-floor retail
- New lighting + glass
- Expanded sidewalks
- Lush landscaping
- A ride-share drop-off
The goal is to brighten up the property (which now sits in the shade) and make it more pedestrian friendly.
The DRB previously approved changes to the rear of the building to:
- Remove the original bank drive-thrus
- Create a new stairway
- Revamp the entrance with fresh landscaping that ties into the green-space under the Church Street bridge
Construction on that portion of the project is expected to begin early next year, with work on the front of the building starting later in 2024.
Executive vice president of Hughes Commercial Harrison Hughes, says, “We think it’s going to be the greatest ‘new old building’ in the city.”
