On Thursday, the developers behind Greenville’s University Ridge redevelopment, RocaPoint Partners, announced their plans for the project.
The redeveloped County Square property, according to RocaPoint Partners, will include a total of 3 million square feet of new Class-A office, street-level retail, hotel, residential, and green space properties. It will also include a new County Square administration building for $65 million. The 250,000-square-foot building is currently under construction and is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2022.
The $1 billion redevelopment project is also projected to create 5,500 employment in the county, according to the developers.
In the statement, Phil Mays, principal of RocaPoint Partners, says, “Greenville is experiencing a surge in popularity due to recent investments from major employers, a growing array of unique dining and retail concepts, and an abundance of walking trails and open-air spaces.” “The University Ridge Development serves as a catalyst for this growth, and we’re excited to continue progress with residents, the county, and our growing team. Together with our partners, we are focused on creating a distinct gathering destination for the Greenville community.
In addition to offering a distinctive gathering destination, the developers emphasized that they are focused on developing a walkable environment that fosters local business growth while still maintaining the charm of downtown Greenville.
