Greenville’s own Phil Hughes has plans to develop 40 acres along I-385, just south of its intersection with Butler Road in Mauldin (in between Holland Road, Bridges Road, and a Greenville Health System distribution center) into an “urban village.”
- Nine mixed-use buildings will become over 1 million sq. feet of apartments, offices, shops, restaurants, 2 hotels, and a movie theatre.
- An office building that Hughes developed on the property for Charter Communications 16 years ago would stay + be incorporated into the village.
- A public park with an amphitheater for events will allow people can use the space for living, working, and playing.
- A planned pedestrian bridge over the interstate, connecting the village to the Swamp Rabbit Trail will connect this to the rest of Greenville.
- It also shows locations for two hotels and a movie theater.
There are no plans to break ground yet (not until 2020, at least) but the estimated project cost is $100 million and is expected to be constructed over an 18-month timeframe.
