Greenville County is seeking a partner in the largest in-fill economic development initiative to take place in awardwinning Downtown Greenvilles recent history. The County is looking for a qualified real estate development team to strategically acquire, demolish, and redevelop up to 37.4± acres of County government owned property located on University Ridge in the City of Greenville, South Carolina. In addition to detailing a stunning, intensive mixed-used development for the entire site, proposals shall include a detailed scheme for the location and possible construction of a new County government administrative office facility on the identified property. Adequate investment intensity, connectivity to the City of Greenvilles downtown, traffic control, and parking is essential to the success of the site development plan.
Development Highlights:The primary objectives for the development of the Countys University Ridge campus are as follows:
The County seat, commonly referred to as "County Square" is located at 301 University Ridge on a high hill overlooking the Reedy River and the popular Falls Park within the heart of the City of Greenville's award winning downtown and one block off of Main Street. In addition to County Square, the County also owns 300 University Ridge and 302 University Ridge on the western side of the street, which, at developer discretion, could also be included in the acquisition and site planning. In total, the Countys University Ridge campus currently comprises more than 37.4 acres and 1,952 parking spaces.
County Square administrative functions and 3rd party tenants currently account for nearly 400 daily employees, a number expected to increase to 500 personnel by 2035. These administrative services draw more than 400,000 visitors a year to the University Ridge campus throughout the business day, and to early evening public hearing and County Council meetings. Options to share parking and stager employee leave times could be explored to improve traffic flow or patronage of other development attractions.
