Greenville’s former Pepsi-Cola plant is transforming into a start-up community

Featuring fitness + coworking space, the Pepsi-Cola plant will soon be Crescent One, an “epicenter for business development.”

That’s what I like. Greenville’s Pepsi-Cola plant, located at 701 Poinsett Hwy., will transform into a start-up community, serving as a “hub for entrepreneurs and business start-ups.”

Flywheel Coworking is the anchor tenant, and Furman University’s Hill Institute + Fitness with a View have also secured spots. Sean Hartness, CEO of Hartness Development says ~15,000 sqft of the new Crescent One building is still available for lease.

Tenants (~40% business start-ups and ~60% freelancers and entrepreneurs — per Flywheel Founding Partner Peter Marsh) will be selected to compliment the “mission of the hub.”

The Pepsi-Cola plant redevelopment is phase one of an “innovation district” with the potential to cover ~20 acres when the project is fully complete. Future projects could include a residential space, an open air shed with food vendors, and a stage.
