Woven, a multi-use development in the Village of West Greenville, received final annexation approval from Greenville City Council this week — paving way for the development to break ground by the end of the year.

Plans for the property — located between Pendleton, Saco, and Traction Streets with Smith Street running up the center — were first unveiled in June 2022, moving to this week’s City Council agenda after months of revisions with the City’s Planning Commission and the Design Review Board Urban Panel.
