Podcast: Details on the planned 200-unit apartment development coming to downtown Spartanburg

Wednesday, October 25

Luxury apartment development set to increase number of downtown apartment units by nearly 50 percent


A challenging seven-acre lot behind the Chapman Cultural Center that had been vacant for years is slated to become home to the largest apartment development in downtown Spartanburg's history after City Council unanimously approved a development agreement with Forge Capital Partners, LLC of Tampa, Florida to construct a $30 million complex. Preliminary site plans show a mix of three and four-story buildings in the seven-building luxury complex, with a 300-space parking area centered between.

 

Today on the podcast, Assistant City Manager Chris Story sits down to give us details on the development agreement, the proposed project, and where this transformative project fits in with the accelerating growth we've been seeing in downtown Spartanburg over the past several years.
