Welcome home

We've been focused on downtown revitalization for more than a decade.

So while we still have plenty of room to grow, we're also way past the "pretty-pictures-on-paper" stage. Here is just a sample of what's happened so far: 

2016

(Note: This is the spot we're holding for you. Right here. Just say the word.)

  • Hub City Co-Op, the first co-op grocery store in the state of South Carolina, set to open downtown in April.
  • Plans for new mixed-use development to include 30 residential units in the Grain District announced.
  • Plans for new 50,000 sf Class-A office building to be located adjacent to USC Upstate's George Dean Johnson Jr. School of Business & Economics and the Chapman Cultural Center announced.

2015

  • 13 new businesses open in Downtown Spartanburg, bringing three-year total to 58.
  • Hub City Tap House, home of Ciclops Brewery & Cyderi, opens in September, bringing the second craft brewery to Downtown Spartanburg.
  • Streetscape improvement projects completed on Wall Street and East Main Street. 

2014

  • Northside Healthy Food Hub — the new $1.6 million home to the Hub City Farmer's Market, a large urban garden, cafe, and culinary training program — opens. Located just eight-tenths of a mile from the Project Bravo site.
  • $14.4 million in improvements, including major runway extension project, announced for the Downtown Memorial Airport. The investment promises to make the City's general aviation airport among the finest of its kind anywhere in the country.

2013

2012

2011

  • Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine opens. ($30 million) Learn more and see the VCOM campus.
  • City completes $4.4 million in upgrades and renovations to Downtown Memorial Airport.

2010

2009

  • RJ Rockers Brewing Co. moves from its industrial park location off Business 85 to its newly renovated space on West Main Street, just a block west of Morgan Square. Read the story about the move and the local partnership that made it happen here.
  • City Council adopts Downtown Code and Downtown Master Plan. In so doing, Spartanburg became the first municipality in South Carolina to adopt a form-based building code for its central business district. Remember, we like to be first.

2007

2006

2003

Since 2002

  • Seven new corporate headquarters, including the One Morgan Square building pictured below, plus two other spec Class-A office buildings have been constructed in Downtown Spartanburg. All this new Class A space is occupied. Total investment of more than $80 million.
  • More than 320 new or renovated residential units have been completed. Downtown residential occupancy rates remain above 95 percent. 
  • City investment of more than $25 million in three new downtown parking garages to support development.
