Wednesday, April 30

Assistant City Manager breaks down development agreement for 3-acre Downtown Spartanburg property


At their most recent meeting, Spartanburg City Council gave unanimous approval to a measure paving the way for a new $7 million mixed-use development behind the Downtown Marriott. The hotel's owners, Jimmy Gibbs and Andy Cajka, have plans for a new, complimentary project on the adjacent property, though no specifics are yet being disclosed. Under the approved agreement, the City will sell the lot to SMR Hospitality II for $1 if a development assessed at least $7 million is constructed. 


While full details on the project aren't yet finalized, today on the podcast, we're talking with Assistant City Manager Chris Story to get the details on deal and what this latest development means for the continued momentum around Downtown Spartanburg.
